…’what about marmalade chicken?’ …’no… done that a while back… need something else…’ …’what about honey and curry chicken? …’oooh, what’s that? Kashmiri Chicken with Lentils and Green Beans - Belleau Kitchen. …. another mid-week chicken thigh treat from Belleau Kitchen… ….

Slow-cooked chicken thighs with orange, radish and honey - Belleau Kitchen. … it’s been two weeks since i’ve been back at Belleau and I can feel every hour of every day that I’ve been away crushing against my soul… ok, this may be a slight exaggeration but I feel like i’ve barely been in the kitchen let alone cooked anything worthy of writing down for such a long time.

The Viking spends most of the daylight hours amongst the new growth, endlessly shifting plants and cursing the rabbits and slugs whilst I wave wistfully at him from the comfort of the kitchen window like a plaintive wartime housewife, a perpetual smile on my face whilst I beat eggs is a fugue of flour… but having not been here for just two weeks I can see why he’s so keen to tame it – and he’s designed a ‘country cottage’ style garden anyway so there’s an element of wildness in its nature but this is quite something.

The advantages of slow cooking aren’t merely functional. The longer and slower you cook something, the more tender and concentrated in flavour the end result will be. This is heightened when there’s a minimal amount of liquid in the pan, because that means the meat braises and steams in its own juices, rather than dispersing the flavour in an ocean of sauce or gravy; this also helps facilitate an exchange of flavour between the contents of the pan, which generally features a mixture of meat and starch.
