Editorial Reviews

Review

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

"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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

When I received this cookbook as a gift, I honestly didn't give it much of a look and it laid in a dusty corner for awhile. Then I bought a whole chicken and said to myself, "This might be a good time to dig up that cookbook again." And boy have I been missing out! This book does not only a great job with the recipes, but also in educating you on the seemingly million different types of chicken one can buy these days, preparation techniques, and so much more. Not only are the chicken recipes great but the side dishes have also been wonderful recipes! Highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys chicken.

I bought this book together with Cree LeFavour's other recent cookbook, "Fish," and my comments on that book apply equally here, so I'll just copy and paste my review: I thumbed through a copy of this book when I saw it at Williams-Sonoma but bought it from Amazon due to a better price. I've had a copy of "The New Steak" by the same author for several years and I've liked most of the recipes in that book. I also like her approach of including recipes for suggested side dishes together with the main course. It's an excellent resource when you prepare something new that might include unfamiliar seasonings or the like.

I especially liked the option to purchase the Kindle edition at a steep discount after I ordered the hardcover. I downloaded it into the Kindle app on my iPad instead of onto my Kindle itself, and I actually used the electronic copy before the hardcover shipment arrived. Very useful to have the electronic copy since my iPad fits nicely behind a glass cover in the kitchen and eliminates the need to crack the spine of the hardcover. The e-book is also useful when we visit relatives (my sister-in-law doesn't like to cook, so since she hosts us when we visit, we cook for her). Since I'd bring the iPad anyway, I like not having to bring the hardcover book.
