The night before: marinate the cock: Put it in a large salad bowl with the onions and the carrots. Pour in the wine, add the bouquet garni and the peppercorns.
Cover and let marinate overnight in the refrigerator (or all day if it will be prepared that evening.)
The day of the dinner: drain the pieces of cock and the vegetables, wipe them dry with paper towels.
Filter the marinade and reserve.
Heat the oil in a pot, throw in the pieces of cock and brown them well on all sides.
Take them out of the pot once browned, and replace them with the vegetables. Sauter them at low heat for 5 minutes. Sprinkle them with flour and stir them to coat the vegetables well.
Put the pieces of cock back into the pot, add the crushed cloves of garlic. Heat up the cognac, pour it in and flamber it.
Pour the wine from the marinade over everything, add the veal broth, and salt and pepper it. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce the heat. Let simmer for 2 1/2 hours at low heat.
Mince the mushrooms. Brown them in a frying pan with the diced bacon for about 5 – 10 min.. Add them to the pot 15 minutes before serving. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

    A work of meticulous clarity in a type face unique for both its dark, dense style and dark, dense political history. Napoleon would not approve.

    Cher Raoul, si ton coq au vin est aussi réussi que ton manuscrit, voilà qui justifiera un vol Paris > San Francisco ! Félicitations.

    Pourquoi ne pas faire la mĂȘme chose : emblĂšme sur les maillots de nos sportifs français avec les paroles de la Marseillaise. Il faut donc soumettre cette idĂ©e au ministre des Sports.
