I came across poussins or spring chickens while we were at Fallon & Byrne a few days ago and could not resist the temptation to purchase a couple of them. I’ve never seen poussins anywhere else in the city, not even at specialist butchers where usually you always have to place an order in advance if you want anything other than the usual fare that’s available.

I’ve heard that roasting a chicken is one of the easiest things to do in the world. I wasn’t quite sure about this myself until I recently tried a simple roast chicken recipe I found online. I think what could go wrong with roasting any kind of bird is that the meat may either be dry and overcooked or undercooked. The recipe I followed was foolhardy and resulted in a roast that was moist on the inside with a crunchy, crispy skin on the outside.

The BBC ‘MasterChef‘ series is one of my favourite tv shows. It’s a competition for both amateur cooks and professional chefs (in mutually exclusive series of course) and a new winner is crowned the MasterChef Champion each year. I really enjoy the witty banter of hosts/judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode while the contestants are scurrying around trying to create master pieces in the middle of utter chaos. It makes for some exciting, nerve-wracking, awe-inspiring moments that makes you want to get into the kitchen and whip up a MasterChef-worthy recipe immediately!

So, you can imagine my joy when we were in a bookstore recently and I found ‘MasterChef at Home’. The book brings together some of the best recipes from winners and participants of the 2010 competition. It also has recipes by Michel Roux Jr, the renowned chef, who’s a judge on the MasterChef Professional series and some handy kitchen skill masterclasses from his trusted aide, Monica Galetti.
