When you know you have a busy week coming, it's a good idea to prepare in advance so that the individual dishes can be simple and quick. I usually cook chicken dishes in those weeks. Therefore, I prepare enough chicken for as many meals as I need.

I often make the same kind of food for a week at a time. Asian, Indian, French, etc. Chicken prepared in this way is especially suitable for Asian week.

There are 4 servings per chicken, so it's just a matter of multiplying how many meals you need. If you are four in the family then it is a chicken a day.

I have gotten into the bad habit of making a portion of these, that I keep in a big glass jar. That way there is always something to put my cheese or Rillette onto. They taste amazing. They are made of grains and seeds, so they are also good if you know someone who can not tolerate gluten, milk, eggs, etc. Or for people who do not eat carbohydrates. In that case you should probably leave out the fig-mustard I'm using in the picture though :-)

Garam Masala is a spice mix. Made up of a lot of regular spices mixed together. Actually it is Indian/Pakistani but it can easily be used in other cuisines as well. Many of the same spices are used in Arabic and Mexican cuisine as well. So it is a very practical thing to have in the cupboard as it goes well with a range from foods from Chicken Tikka Masala to tacos ans burritos.

Video Recipe - Foie gras terrine or as the French are saying "Terrine de foie gras" is a classic. It is just the fat liver of a duck or a goose where you add salt, pepper and a little alcohol. But the traditional method is difficult to do correctly, and too much of the fat melts of and is wasted.

So I find that this is the perfect recipe to make using sous vide.

You have probably also had that experience. When you think that you have bought a great cookbook, and you eagerly page through it. Only to find out that it contains only one single recipe you like, but which turns out to actually be a *really* great recipe. The cookbook with the recipe for onion soup is the perfect example of this for me :-) So now that I have written the recipe here on the site, I can finally get rid of that cookbook.
