We don’t shop exclusively at The Chicken Pantry in the Vic Market but if I had to choose my favorite chook and related meat’s store, this would be it. We eat roo probably once a month or so and the peppered roo from The Chicken Pantry is a favourite.
So tonight we had the roo with a couple of ‘sides’ from Wild Sides, a book of vegetable side dishes that is small in terms of cookbooks but punches above its weight. We are of the opinion that roo goes real well with sweet potato and beetroot, so the sides we chose for tonight were a beetroot, mint and yoghurt salad and creamy sweet potato mash. I used our thermomix for the mash as it produces exquisite puree.
We ate the meal with a couple of glasses of Jack (deluxe dry red, not Daniels)and I have to say, not bad for a Thursday night.
Made no ground today though as I couldn’t resist a 30% discount voucher from Dymocks, so brought home the India Cookbook from Phaidon. I’ve been resisting this cookbook since it came out but finally succumbed. I’m a weak, weak man.
