Nobel Rooster in red wine

Visit the local market. Had imagined to buy ostrich or turkey, but instead we ended up by buying a grand rooster. Now I am sure some of you stop reading. Can you really eat rooster?

The proud and well grown roosters is from Tockafarmaren in Genarp. Fillets has got its trademark in Alfred Nobel's memory after it has become a preferred supplier to the Nobel Prize banquet in 2007 and 2009.

The choice of the course was something I dreamed of cooking for a long time, an Italian version of Coq au Vin. What triggered this choice of dish was that I finally found Pancetta in our local butcher store. Red onion, garlic, Pancetta with Mediterranean spices browned lightly in a large casserole. Then on with the impressive fillets 1 / 2 kg each. The meat is shimmering with a light pink / red color. When meat is browned lightly I took them out of the pan and cut them into smaller pieces. Then back to the pan and mixed with a WHOLE BOTTLE red from Tuscany. Let it simmer for an hour on low heat. The meal was complemented by pouring in fresh Swedish chanterelles at the end. Added to this lovely dish was potatoe cloves.

The meal was fantastic and memorable for the rest of my life. The flavors harmonized like a symphony by Mozart. And the rooster was sensationally good and I can highly recommend to test this. We tried a bottle of Champagne together with the dish and it was a success.
