Overview

Over 150 delicious recipes that will raise humble poultry to new heights.

Chicken and Other Fowl shows home cooks how to use every part of a chicken — right down to the bones — and get the best value for money. The book covers chicken, turkey and game birds, and it describes how to grill, poach, cut up a bird and carve roasted fowl of all types.

Full-page color photographs of finished dishes and special tips and suggestions for variations and accompaniments complement the recipes. The instructions assume no prior experience.

Recipes are organized into:

  • Soups and stocks
  • Snacks and starters
  • Legs and breasts
  • Salads
  • Curries
  • Barbecue
  • Roasts
  • One-pot wonders
  • Tarts, pies and pastries
  • Pasta, noodles and grains
  • Confits, terrines, pâtés and pastrami

The delicious recipes include classic and contemporary dishes, such as Thai spiced duck salad, barbecued Buffalo wings, chicken and asparagus chowder, pheasant wrapped in prosciutto with polenta and roast turkey with caramelized onions.

Practical and beautifully illustrated, Chicken and Other Fowl answers that common dinnertime question: "What do I do with a package of chicken breasts?"

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Replicating the format that made 2009's Beef such an enjoyable find, British chef Torode shows readers how to get the most out of poultry. Though Torode dutifully recounts classics like roast turkey, Coq Au Vin, and pot pies, his true knack is for invention: leftovers find new life in baked curry puffs and stocks, while livers can be used for Deviled Chicken Liver Crostini, breaded and topped with Bearnaise sauce, or pan-fried for a simple sweet-and-sour salad; ground chicken, meanwhile, makes delightfully spicy patties topped with fresh salsa, or Spaghetti with Curried Chicken Meatballs. Like its bovine-focused predecessor, this volume includes eight variations for common dishes like grilled chicken thighs, pan-seared duck breast, kebabs, and various stuffings, giving devotees of a particular dish room to maneuver. More complex dishes, like "Raised" Chicken and Partridge Pie-a towering pot pie made with hot-water pastry-will give seasoned cooks a new challenge for a lazy afternoon. Specific ingredients like Juniper berries, Thai pea eggplants, and yellow rock sugar may prove difficult to source in the U.S., but even cooks who don't know a capon from a Cornish game hen will find worthwhile dishes within their skill set.
