12:46 am
a dish that warms your heart to a girl it was one of those over the years and one of the best places to try an authentic version of this world famous dish is that. the restaurant lies on the outskirts of being nice in burgundy the region where coco found was created. via frederick mina and expert on chicken let's us to look over his shoulder. for the devil series reported with it a move coarser secret but i'm not telling you what it is a no no cooking is all about sharing back to the incident. to prepare a classical co-found you need to dismember an entire chicken. then add chopped onion small carrots garlic and a bundle over but first fries some fatty bacon in a roasting pan aside for the piece of the bird to be salted individually for all

12:48 am
variations on this recipe using a variety of why is that the baker if you keep most of us but you can't make a couple in your with the wine from the one valley it would be a cocoa but not one from burgundy not local made but i cook or who you. can fit a clinician a gives us on the other test before pouring the red wine over the first heat the wine to the boiling point and from day it builds up warm it burns away the acidity and the alcohol has to. legend has it that coco van was popularized in paris in the late sixteenth century by henry the fourth the french king is credited with giving common folk a chicken in every pot. historian loike panacea explains. lead they think. the essence of the story is that

a good king emery because that's the image the french have a few wanted only the best for his subjects from screwed up was pretty that it suited to eating this fine dish with their families every sunday savor proud of a cure for the good. weather the legend is true or not many hands and roosters have wound up in french cooking pots over the centuries. and in henry's day they lived. eight this friday in particular the flesh a very old breed of chicken that. raises at his organic farm when it is a new move can still come in and prove you are you have older animals that are two or maybe six years old or even more personal and an easy way to tenderize the meat of such an old bird is to cook it long and slow. and why it is perfect for that oh well. so went
12:50 am
from being a humble rustic dish to the essence of french cuisine. the simplicity of its recipe and its name have made it world famous. very good once again the gaelic rooster has done its country proud. now we're venturing up into the mountains to the mall blong the white mountain some call it the highest peak in europe although that's subject to some debate there's a higher peaks in russia and georgia but what's certain is that it probably stands at four thousand eight hundred ten meters and the alpine region between france and italy it was first climbed in seventeen eighty six pioneering in the region but before that your remarks reporter meghan li traveled that to learn more about the mountains history. the highest mountain. stood here since the

extracted courts from the mountains of chamonix it was then shipped off to geneva even made its way to the halls of versailles harmony's crystal museum visitors can get an idea of the minerals extracted from month long and its neighboring peaks. that imagine sherman he was a very small simple village people had a simple life and were poor house before that and then they found out without having to climb too high up the mountain that with these rockers tools they could possibly sell them in geneva and make some money and then have a better life and peace and peace the whole snape and that pioneering spirit has certainly paid off for sure many tourists now flock to the village to travel with the cable car to reach a height of thirty eight hundred meters above sea level. even with the most modern technology and safety measures in place the ride is not for the faint of heart.
