LM RESTAURANT GROUP CELEBRATES NATIONAL COQ AU VIN DAY ON MARCH 22

This March, LM Restaurant Group celebrates National Coq Au Vin Day on Saturday, March 22. For the day, Managing Chef Partner Martial Noguier has prepared a special recipe, which will be available at all of the concepts.

LM Restaurant Group’s goal to bring distinctly French dining experience to Chicago area neighborhoods and Coq au vin is a dish that demonstrates what is good about French cuisine: simple hearty food, enjoyed with good wine an great friends. While eating coq au vin, time stops, which is why the dish has become timeless and loved by most.

The dish will be available for $21 at Bistronomic, $17 at Troquet River North, $13 at Troquet Ravenswood, and $16 at Brasserie by LM.

Coq Au Vin

 

Ingredients

3.5 lbs Chicken, free range or organic, cut into pieces

1 quart Red Wine, Full Bodied (Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon)

3 Carrots, Medium, Peeled and Sliced

2 Celery Sticks, Sliced

20 Baby Onions, peeled

1 tbsp Black Peppercorns, crushed

1 Bouquet Garni (parsley stalks, 2 baby leaves, 6 springs of thyme tied together)

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1 heaping tbsp. Plain Flour

1 tbsp Olive Oil

.5 lb Bacon, smoked streaky, ring removed, diced

1 lb Button Mushrooms

1.5 tbsp Unsalted Butter

1 tbsp Flat Parsley, chopped

Sea Salt

Black Pepper, freshly ground

 

Instructions

  1. In a pot, bring the red wine to a boil and flambé to remove the alcohol. Cool down.
  2. Separately mix the chicken pieces, carrots, celery, baby onions, peppercorns and bouquet garni together and pour the cooled red wine over. Cover with cling wrap, refridgerate and marinade for 24 hours.
  3. Place colander over a large bowl and drain the marinade. Leave to drain for a minimum of 1 hour to remove excess juices. Separate chicken, vegetables, and herbs, pat dry.
  4. Preheat the oven to 390°F. Sprinkle flour on baking tray and cook in the oven for 8 – 10 minutes until the flour has a wonderful pale brown color. Reduce the heat of the oven to 300°F.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a thick-bottomed large casserole dish, sear and color the chicken pieces for 5 – 7 minutes on each side. Then with a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken pieces on to a plate, In the same pan, add the drained vegetables and herbs. Lower the heat to medium high and cook for 5 minutes.
    Spoon out the fat, add the flour and stir for a few seconds. Add the wine from the marinade little by little whiskey continuously to incorporate into the flour. Lastly, add the chicken pieces into the red wine sauce. The sauce should be smooth and coating the back of a spoon.
  6. Bring to a boil, skim, cover with a lid and cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Place a large colander over a large saucepan and drain the coq au vin. Reduce the sauce by half. At this stage, you should be very pleased with yourself. Taste the sauce.
  7. Put the chicken pieces back into the sauce. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick pan, cook the diced bacon for 1 minute, add the button mushrooms and cook for 2 more minutes.
  8. Season with salt and pepper. Mix the diced bacon and button mushrooms into coq au vin. Sprinkle with parsley and serve the piping hot dish onto the table.

Local Cheese & Homemade Recipes at Bistronomic

In keeping with the theme of offering guests truly authentic French cuisine, the menu at Bistronomic features Homemade Country Pate ($8), a Noguier family recipe developed two generations ago.

“My grandmother created the original recipe to serve on Sundays for dinner with friends and family,” Chef Noguier explains.  “Over the years, my mother added her own elements, and what I serve today is the result of a combination of their cooking styles as well as my own.  I am pleased to have the opportunity to share such a personal creation with guests.”

Served with Dijon mustard, cornichons and baguette croutons, guests can enjoy this original, small plate menu item during all hours of operation.

In addition, the full menu of cheese flights are created using cheese from regional farms, including Capriole Farm in Indiana and Pleasant Ridge Farm in Wisconsin, among others.  Chef Noguier, who frequents Green City Market, has regularly initiated cheese programs and wine pairing dinners throughout his career.  His deep knowledge and appreciation of Midwest cheeses is testament to Bistronomic’s goal of creating for guests an international dining experience at a local level.  Guests can sample domestic, 1-ounce artisanal cheese and cheese flights with a variety of combinations including Marieke Gouda Raw Plain, Hidden Spring Bohemian Blue and Capriole Farm Herb Goat cheese; prices vary.
