The Chicken Hunt

Cocambroche

After all the hard work of hunting down a particularly toothsome spectacle of Romanesque churchdom, nothing satisfies quite like a rotisserie chicken brought home fresh from the market, perhaps accompanied by some crispy bread and fragrant fresh cherries and peaches.

As all Francophiles know, everything tastes better in France and chickens are almost a different species over there. They have an essence of intense ‘chickenness’ that can only be guessed at here. There is even a type of chicken in France that is awarded a special ‘appellation’ like wine. These chickens, in Bourg-en-Bresse, are the only ones that can be marketed as chickens from that particular area.

Rotisserie

But back to our rotisserie topic: the rotisserie birds generally come in two varieties–the regular bird and the farm-raised bird. The regular is great, but the farm-raised, usually a big beefy bird, is a cosmic experience.

Occasionally there will also be tiny wild birds for sale–that’s a future adventure for us.
