Coq au Vin Extraordinaire

Filed under: Recipes — Artflux at 6:55 pm on Wednesday, October 25, 2006

One of my flavorful favorites that is extraordinary and you can have some of the wine as well while cooking. It’s better if you get a young chicken. If you have an old one it will be a little tougher.


3 tablespoons of butter or olive oil
Whole chicken
¼ lb minced salt pork
½ cup onions
½ cup white onions
1 sliced carrot
3 minced shallots
1 pealed garlic clove
2 tbs flower
2 tbs parsley
1 tbs marjoram
1 bay leaf
½ tspn thyme
1 tspn salt
1 ½ sherry or red wine

In a large pot put heat oil or butter. Add salt pork, onions, shallots carrot and garlic clove. Push veggies aside and brown the chicken in the fat. Add the flower, parsley, marjoram, bay leaf, thyme, salt, pepper and brandy.

Stir in 1 ½ cups of the wine or sherry. Simmer for about 1 hour covered.

Add the sauce and veggies over it before serving.

Teriyaki Chicken Breasts

Filed under: Recipes — Artflux at 6:32 pm on Friday, October 20, 2006

This is a quickie recipe when your time is sparse and your not into heating up the oven. You can throw it together in no time at all.

1 or 2 whole chicken breasts depending on their size
Teriyaki sauce
Minced Onions
Tsp Olive Oil

Cut the raw chicken breasts into cubes and place into a bowl. Pour teriyaki sauce over the chicken.  Add more sauce if it doesn’t cover the chicken parts.  Cover with saran wrap and let marinade in the bowl for 30 minutes.

Place just enough olive oil into a large frying pan to cover its surface.(a few tablespoons worth, your not deep frying). Turn on the heat to Med/High.

Drain off excess teriyaki sauce from the chicken and put the chicken into the frying pan.

Allow the chicken to cook some, then lightly sprinkle it with basil and minced onions. Continue to stir fry the chicken until most of the cubes are cooked, then lower the heat to medium or just a bit higher. Continue stirring the chicken until done.

Chicken cubes should have a nice yellow/brown color. Test by tasting. Total cooking time should be about 15 to 20 minutes but as in all cooking, the recipe time, and the real time it takes to cook are two different things.

Walking with Snowflake

Filed under: Editorial — Donna Cameron at 3:22 pm on Wednesday, October 4, 2006

eq0g9pdgqmxf7nm72b0k5t2akfplmah00a0.jpgToday was a perfect fall day, the sun and a light west wind spun around us as we walked. It was the kind of early autumn afternoon when you could feel the currents of the seasons as if they were plates at the earth’s core, magnetic, pulling and repelling, causing frequencies to rise and maybe conjuring a gothic ghost or five to the warming autumn sunlight. I ran into Howard Bloom, and we discussed science and art as usual, he was really into a new camera he showed me and was excited about his new photography. He was on his way to Prospect Park, shouldering his pea green backpack that carries his writer’s office around the neighborhood.- He was walking there before going to the Tea Room, he said, to do his work. I wondered as he spoke which was his real work. We discussed issues of humanism as always. After I left him, the day enthralled me, the sunelight grew more crystalline as the sun hit 4pm, and Snowflake, my Siberian Husky, was pulling after every dog, bird, cat and whatever else was out there, flying and crawling. I wondered about her doglife understanding of humanist philosophy.

I was reminded of 16th century music looking at her beautiful mask, with its white gothic architecture, and her big friendly wolf smile. A sonnet by Petrarch came to mind. I returned home and looked it up. Who else but “man’s best friend” could be the subject, and truly deserving, of such a delightful poem as this? I was inspired to think that Francesco Petrarch had loved a dog too.
