Editorial Reviews

Review

"The humble and incredibly versatile chicken gets its due in "Poulet", Cree LeFavour's compact but thorough handbook on all things bird. Featuring easy-to-master recipes from around the world, the book dispenses with the American obsession with boring, dry white meat and zeroes in on the more flavorful dark meat. The Sorrel Chicken Troisgros should be part of every cook's arsenal." - Stan Sagner, New York Daily News

This is no dumbed-down "50 ways to cook chicken." Instead, Poulet is focused on seasonal ingredients and today's standards for humane, organic antibiotic-free certification.
- Dianna Marder, The Philadelphia Inqirer

Maybe chicken isn't glamorous, but it's one of the friendliest, most economical focal points for a home-cooked meal. And at this time of year, you want comfort and simplicity along with a serious jolt of flavor to knock out the doldrums. That's what "Poulet" offers: recipes for flavor bombs that belie the amount of effort required to prepare them.
--Jennifer Day, The Chicago Tribune

Back away from those pale, shrink-wrapped chicken breasts. LeFavour takes the dark-meat and whole-bird approach, which is both more flavorful and less expensive, then takes le lowly poulet on a global tour filled with flavorful detours.
--Jackie Burrell, The San Jose Mercury News

"The world's best chicken recipes" - Tony Turnbill, The Times of London

About the Author

Cree LeFavour is a cookbook writer who grew up on a ranch in Idaho. Her books include The New Steak (2008). She lives with her two children, Penn and Harriet, and her husband, Dwight Garner, in Frenchtown New Jersey.

France Ruffenach is a San Francisco-based photographer.

More About the Author

Cree's relaxed kitchen style is defined by innovative combinations and the big flavors that come from whole spices, fresh herbs and lots of chiles. Never mind the stress and anxiety of following a complicated recipe -- Cree believes anyone can cook and cook well given simple instructions and great ingredients. POULET is her global take on chicken. You'll encounter fresh recipes for cooking thighs, whole birds and side dishes in five chapters including American Chicken, Latin Chicken, Bistro Chicken, South Asian Chicken, East Asian Chicken and Middle Eastern Chicken.

A longtime proponent of natural meat, seasonal produce and slow, simple cooking, Cree grew up on a ranch in Idaho with pigs, cows, chickens, rabbits, goats, and a big garden. She was also lucky enough to do her share of traveling, with plenty of eating and drinking along the way. Her first cookbook, THE NEW STEAK (2008) focuses on skirt steak, hangar steak and all the side dishes that make cooking a steak so worthwhile. It's not to be missed if you're tired of the same-old creamed spinach and potato sides.

Born in Aspen, Colorado, Cree and her family moved to central Idaho when she was 9-years-old. After several years in Vermont (Cree's B.A. is from Middlebury College), she and her husband, Dwight Garner, moved to New York City where she completed her Ph.D. in American Studies. (That's her dissertation she can buy, right here on Amazon.) Cree lives with her children, Penn and Hattie, in Frenchtown, New Jersey alongside the majestic Delaware River.

I love that POULET makes chicken an elegant dish.

I received POULET as a gift. I cook regularly but these days, I grab most of my recipes from the internet so opening an actual cookbook was a departure for me. But POULET's great, cheery cover pulls you in and I couldn't put the book away. I found myself browing through the book all the time - whenever I was in the kitchen, every time I was on the phone, any time I needed to sit down.

I love that each recipes is a full meal (a chicken with a vegetable and a starch). I love that POULET makes chicken an elegant dish. And I love that it took me a few days to realize that the list of American chicken recipes was only Chapter One. (There are also chapters for Bistro chicken, Asian chickens, Latin Chicken, Middle Eastern Chicken etc...)

When our foodie neighbors were coming over for dinner, I was a bit worried that chicken was too mundane. But POULET's "Lemon Chicken with Crispy Sage Leaves, Creamy Polenta & Roasted Fennel" sounded original and - yes - it turned out to be amazing. A huge hit. Guests had many servings. I can still taste the incredible, tender, lemon chicken (over two weeks later.) Moreover, I added water to the leftover chicken and lemony- sauce and ended up with the most INCREDIBLE chicken soup I have ever had...

I love the book's comforting, conversational tone. The ingredients and cooking instructions are both clear and friendly(as opposed to books where the style is intimidating). There are nice details which make each recipe distinctive - like the fried sage leaves which is something I would have never thought of but which added a great scent and style to the plate.

I still can't put the book away - I love it on my kitchen counter(it's the only book on my counter). If you eat chicken - you have to have this book.

This is Cree LeFavour's best cookbook yet -- and that's really saying something! This is a book which manages to be both simple enough to reach for every day, but also somehow re-invents the wheels completely about chicken, makes you see this old bird in a new light. I kind of worship of this book! Also, just to be superficial about it...the cover is so gorgeous, it makes a beautiful house-gift! Enjoy!

Exalt is the best adjective for this cookbook. These recipes make chicken and cooking exciting again. I absolutely love that each recipe is in a complete meal format

For example : Oven fried chicken thighs, radish and feta salad with yam fries.

Poulet makes it simple to throw together a dinner in no time and one that will impress your guest(s) or just yourself. Poulet ranges from French, African, Asian, and Latin cooking without too many exotic and esoteric ingredients. I highly recommend this cookbook

We love this series of three books by this author. We cook at home all the time and these books are very informative. When reading the intro to her subject I found that she 'tells it like it is' with chicken! I have never before found the sanitation and quality problems spelled out so clearly. This book finally convinced me to buy better quality birds and to be even more of a bear about the chicken sanitation problems in the kitchen. "Pretend you are a surgeon putting on your gloves and keeping a clean, sanitation field all around you when preparing the bird to cook"..... I tell my husband, a big, burly artist who constantly wipes his hands on his pants therefore creating a secondary art work on his clothing. He seems not to have watched any doctor shows on television so he can't maintain the vision of infection=death vrs. cleanliness=survival through the entire bird preparation and seasoning rituals. I take on the responsibility now, gearing up with long rubber gloves, plenty of chlorox wipes, and a good dose of fantasizing about being in an important biology lab on the moon.

I love this cookbook! I have a sorta "cookbook acquisition disorder", so I read a lot of them. I read this practically cover to cover, and just about every recipe appeals to me. I love the layout, and that each chicken recipe is paired with side dishes that are also very enticing. So far I've made the meatballs over angel hair pasta, and the sides. Delicious! Now I've also purchased the authors' book on steak, which is wonderful too.
