COQ AU RIESLING (Rooster in white wine sauce)

In case that you like the tast of chicken, you should try to get a full grown rooster. Expect 5-10 times more taste than from those whimpy, blown-up, watery supermarket chickens! The difficulty is not cooking a rooster, but finding a supplier (except in France). We finally managed to get such an animal here in Montreal, which had a lable stuck to it saying : old (!) rooster. We took it anyway, and it turned out to be excellent. This one was relatively small (3.5 kg), many of them go beyond 5 kg.

This meal goes very well with rice, and a good white wine (like a Riesling). Serves between 8-12 people.
