I seem to have been on a roast chicken mission recently born mainly out of a desire to clear out my freezer stocks. I have 3 freezers – one chest, which seems to reach maximum capacity very quickly. I hate wasting food so freeze any scrap of leftovers I can. This on top if being a food stylist where any excess shoot food that is freezable gets tossed in.

Roast chicken has to be one of  the most comforting dishes in the world and I could never tire of it, especially when its cooked in loads of wine, garlic and herbs. Of course a whole birds is a thing of beauty, but for variation, I like to roast it broken up in pieces so it wallows in all the pan juices and cooks a whole lot quicker. Continue Reading →
