We are back from our vacation in l’Ariege. Every year we visit Clotilde’s aunt, Tiny, in her summer home. We are always warmly welcomed and treated to the local products and great conversation. It is a lovely region with magnificent landscapes. In France meals are more than a moment when you fill up on your energetic needs. They represent moments in the day in which you sit together to share and converse. To honor such occasions, we decided to try a “poulet au foin” (chicken cooked in hay). We followed Alain Passard’s chicken recipe.
