New Cookbook Tells You Everything You Wanted to Know about Cooking a Chicken

Darpan News Desk, 15 Sep, 2016 11:26 AM
    Chicken…who doesn’t love a good piece? While fried chicken may be the best known chicken dish, there are a lot of ways to love America’s most popular meal. In her new cookbook CHICKEN: A Savor the South Cookbook (The University of North Carolina Press/September 2016), author Cynthia Graubart celebrates the bird in all its glory…from southern styles to international. CHICKEN contains the essential information needed for cooking the perfect chicken, humorous anecdotes, the culinary history of chicken, and 53 delicious recipes everyone will love. 
     
    “The pleasures of cooking — and eating — a glistening, perfectly roasted chicken can’t be beat,” says Cynthia. “With a few basic rules and a little bit of know-how, anyone can serve up irresistible chicken dishes.”
     
    Cynthia divides this little gem of a cookbook into chapters that cover The Whole Bird, What’s Your Favorite Piece? and A Bird in the Hand (cooked chicken on hand saves the day). And, be assured that Cynthia includes instructions for making the best fried chicken ever — seven different ways! Ranging in style from traditional Southern to contemporary and international, Cynthia’s recipes are organized to help easily match the cut of chicken to the perfect recipe. Some of recipes in the book include:
     
    • Perfect Roast Chicken
    • Straight Up Bundt Pan Roast Chicken
    • Carolina Chicken Bog
    • Virginia Coq au Vin
    • Latin Fried Chicken with Smoky Ketchup
    • Chicken Thighs with Fennel and Lemon
    • Korean Twice-Fried Chicken Wings
    • Fried Chicken and Waffles
    • Chicken Sausages and Apples
    • Chicken and Parslied Dumplings
    • Greek Lemon Chicken Soup (Avgolemono)
     
    CHICKEN packs all the know-how that cooks need to make irresistible chicken dishes for everyday and special occasions, from shopping and selecting to cutting up, frying, braising, roasting, and much more.  You won’t need take-out when you have CHICKEN in your kitchen!
