'Tis the season for visitors and that means we're eating a lot of poulet rôti at our house. As I noted way back when, it's both delicious and deliciously simple when you have extra folks around the table and to my mind, also a quintessential part of our Paris experience.
There was a long long queue at the butcher's the other day when I went to fetch my two chickens for dinner, giving me enough time to summon up my courage to ask the cheerful monsieur if I could take his picture. He knows me well enough now that the soft sell worked just fine, and I'm glad to have this souvenir of the many chickens we've had from his establishment. And for the record, the chicken was yummy. Roasted potatoes, a simple salad, and a bottle of wine was all that was needed to make me look like a hero of a hostess.
