I discovered Diana Henry's A Bird in the Hand from a mention by Arielle of the Food52 piglet. I devoured it once the library supplied it. I like chicken and so I am enthralled and amazed by an entire book of chicken recipes.

As cookbooks go, I think this has a lot to recommend it: fancy recipes, easy recipes, recipes for chicken parts, recipes for chicken salads, recipes for leftover chicken. I love that it has the fancy and the I'm-tired-and-must-cook recipes. I raise a drumstick to Ms. Henry. I look forward to cooking from it.


Cumin and Turmeric Roast Chicken with Smashed Avocado and Corn Cakes


We started with "Cumin and Turmeric Roast Chicken with Smashed Avocado and Corn Cakes". Straightforward, if in three pieces—chicken, cakes, guac—and it turned out very tasty. Three different tasties.

I guess what I appreciate most was having all these flavors together while the process itself felt easy. [Although [personal profile] yomikoma did most of the work.] The corn cakes were certainly fun to fry up. And it was satisfying to sit down to.
