Coq Au Vin

There is a great place close to where I live called Farmshop. It has a great restaurant that focuses on using local and in season ingredients, and an amazing shop attached to it. The shop has all kinds of amazing cheeses, wines, meats, pastries, and even a small handful of local produce.

Every time I eat there I walk around the shop and am dying to buy something to cook with.
Last week, after a delicious lunch, Richard and I walked around the shop and decided it was time we buy something to cook. We decided on Jidori Chicken for Coq Au Vin, equally because the chicken is amazing and because we've been wanting to make Coq Au Vin. We also got greens for a salad, and fingerling potatoes.
I was especially excited because we used Julia Child's recipe, and I've never used a recipe of hers before.

The salad was simple, with avocado, goat cheese, cherry tomatoes (from Farmshop) and toasted pine nuts. The potatoes were also simple but just as delicious - we used parsley from our garden that we recently planted. The chicken was delicious, and amazing to see it turn such a deep purple color.
