The Sunday Roast
Sunday, July 01, 2007
We haven't had roast chicken for quite a while now so I thought I'd put it on the table tonight. On a bed of potatoes, I dressed a whole chicken up with seasoning and fresh herbs. I kind of went mental with the herbs, throwing on sprigs of tarragon, sage, thyme and rosemary as well as a couple of crushed garlic cloves. To finish up, I gave it a pat of herb butter and sent the whole lot on its merry way into the oven.
Trying out one of Heston Blumenthal's scientific theory on cooking, I set the oven at a low temperature of 150o for about 3 hours. I didn't follow Heston's method completely - the man roasts his meats at a low temperature (around 55o)for up to 24 hours. Yoicks!
With the chicken roasting away, I went out into the backyard to do some more work. As in work on my tan. *wink*
