  1. Perfect Coq au Vin, Mardi! This was some fabulous dish which we enjoyed over a couple of meals. Just perfect! I’m looking forward to this weekly challenge!

  2. Am sorry I missed this (out of town). Looks like a mighty fine Coq au Vin…almsot as good as mine. 😉

    Many wine choices here, as I find this dish actually provides a fair bit of leeway. Red or even white, following along your preferences. Stay away from too domineering a vino though – both in terms of bold flavours (Aussie Shiraz or Primotivo, for example) or alcohol (lots of warm climate reds).

    So a Chianti would be fine if you favour Italians, a Pinot Noir from pretty much anywhere (though personally I’d lean towards cooler climate), even a Bordeaux. On the whites, a Riesling or CHenin Blanc would be my preference.

  3. This is very interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
