This Week's Central Coast Recipe
Braised Quail Hunter Style
Preparation time: 4 hours
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Braised Quail Hunter Style is a real show-stopper when you want to serve something very special and elegant. We especially love to serve this on grilled polenta--very showy indeed! --And Oh! so good! If you're lucky enough to have a hunter-friend that goes quail-hunting, and gives you a few of the catch, you might be able to make it with fresh quail. But otherwise, there are a few good American companies that clean then fast-freeze their farmed-quail. All you have to do is to defrost it and braise it gently in wine.

When I was a girl helping my Mother and Grandmother prepare Thanksgiving dinner one of my jobs was to stuff the turkey and sew the cavity shut for roasting.

The secret I learned later was to truss the bird.read more...California Central Coast Wine Value Pick | Edward Sellers 2006 Paso Robles Syrah2009-10-01 15:58:31 ID=511:1© 2009 The Romantic Table
