fwiw, the video shows G-C and not Chambertain. I can't tell the producer, but it appears to be village level and not 1er.

how much is decent vin jaune?

You'd know better than I would, but if I had to guess like $40? At least that's the cheapest I've ever seen in a shop.

Vin jaune sauce is generally just made from regular jura wine.
post #21363 of 25819
Even when it's specifically referred to as, say, Sauce Château-Chalon at restaurants on Meurice's level? (I've made it with regular jura wine after you mentioned this a few months back and was quite happy with it)
post #21364 of 25819
Yes, but there are also reds from the Jura, which would not work interchangeably.

I think I paid the equivalent of $13 for just a big mac (no meal) in Norway in 2009...and it was about the cheapest thing I could find to eat

Dry-aged beef, red wine-braised onions, foie gras, sauce Bordelaise

Another slice.

That looks nice.

Random question: what happens when a 'star' or very talented chef leaves a restaurant for greener pastures? I'm not talking about executive chefs at the well established places where people are trained to replicate their recipes without them.

I'm talking about those 'boutique' restaurants that happen to have an undiscovered, up-and-coming, talented chef. The chefs who are the backbone to the success of the restaurant. If I were a restaurant owner and I happened to have a very talented chef in the kitchen, I'd be CONSTANTLY worried that he/she would be poached and/or leave for more pay.

How do restaurants combat this?

Their ratings drop of course - see L2O of Chicago

first attempt roasting a chicken, came out pretty well i think. No idea how to carve it though, just stabbed the fuck out of it.
post #21372 of 25819
That's some big chicken!
post #21373 of 25819
2.1kg, is that particularly big for a chicken?
post #21374 of 25819
Oh, looked bigger to me. I guess 2kg is in the upper midfield. Of cours eit depends on the breed.
post #21375 of 25819
that thing looks more like a turkey than a chicken.
