Finally made a recipe I've had hanging around for several years. "Bouillabaisse de Poulet Chez Tante Paulette" a chicken stew with fennel and saffron.
This is in a book by Patricia Wells but I found it on a Blog called Culinate that I used to follow. I believe it is not longer active but if you're patient you can find a lot of good recipes on storage.
I thought I followed the recipe pretty well but now of course, I see mistakes I made. But there were other things I was not terribly impressed with.
It has a very gentle flavour for a stew and I should have served it with a hearty bread. my bad. It also called for the fennel with feathery leaves attached. I did not think my fennel was old but I found the stems were very chewy even after cooking for a couple of hours.
All in all it was pretty good, will I make it again? Don't know, it is handy for prepping the day before and cooking up later. But somehow I was left wanting.
