Stephen Harris's classic chicken fricassée, inspired by an 18th-century cookbook
I n the modern world, it’s easy to get carried away with the idea that we are blazing a trail into the future and that progress is inevitable. Someone once said that every generation thinks it discovered sex: I feel the same way about Whitstable. I have watched since the Sixties as groups of newcomers came to my home town, convinced that it was their discovery or secret.
I was reminded of this feeling recently while going through a rather academic book about the history of restaurants. The writer just casually mentioned a French chef doing a guest spot at a restaurant in Soho. Nothing strange about that: pop-ups are very fashionable nowadays. Except this was back in the early 20th century – over a hundred years ago.
I had the same feeling when I came across William Verrall’s Complete System of Cookery, published in 1759. Mr Verrall had trained with a French chef, Pierre de St Clouet, while working for the Duke of Newcastle (French chefs were already very fashionable among Whig politicians).
He then took over a pub in Lewes, Sussex, called the White Hart Inn, and proceeded to cook the food that he had learnt under his French master. He describes himself, slightly disingenuously, as a poor publican.
T hat feeling of nothing being new came over me as I leafed through the recipes and alighted on the introduction. Verrall aims to introduce the reader to the “most modern and best French Cookery”, avoiding the notorious errors he has seen being committed.
T he recipes feel distinctly modern even now: hearing how St Clouet cooked an elegant banquet featuring five calves’ heads costing less than a groat each, using the tongues, brains and ears, felt very “nose-to tail”.
In recent years, food historians have tried to look again at Britain’s poor gastronomic reputation: to challenge the notion that we were great roasters of meat but nothing more. Yet in his introduction, Verrall describes frequently being hired to cook for up to 10 people without any decent cooking equipment. The only piece every kitchen had was a frying pan, black with use, with a handle so long that the user would block off half of the kitchen.
T his is a fairly damning piece of evidence: it suggests that as of the mid-18th century, the kind of equipment needed to cook well was simply not to be found here.
I think that, even long before the Industrial Revolution and the two world wars which are often blamed for ruining Britain’s food culture, we viewed the more ambitious and pleasure-seeking cuisines of continental Europe, for which read Catholic Europe, for which read France, with suspicion – that our prevailing attitude to food was a slightly puritanical feeling that enjoying the trimmings of life too much is immoral.
A simple mutton chop with some boiled cabbage was enough to do the job of sustaining life: any more attention to what you ate would be frivolous – and distinctly un-Protestant.
T his week’s recipe is inspired by the surprisingly modern cooking in Verrall’s book. He claims that he can teach anyone how to make a chicken fricassée as good as his own – as long as they have the right equipment.

Chicken Fricassee, Dairy Free (you would NOT know).
A dairy free chicken fricassee a must try whether your dairy free or not. This certainly did not compromise on taste, a creamy tasty dish. My top hint is fry those mushroom and shallots so they start to brown. The flavors that sinks into the mushrooms from the sauce is immense.
This was great with polenta and how fast is polenta to grill up! its my new latest convenience food and not bad for you at all, in fact quite good. Umm I wonder if I can make my own?
NB when preparing ingredients those in the same colour can be mixed in the same bowl as they are used in the cooking process at the same time. Those in black are to remain separate.
- 1 tbsp of Oil to cook, May need more less use as little as you can.
- Chicken Thighs. Bones removed.
- 500 ml chicken stock.
- 250ml white wine.
- 1 Bouquet Garni.
- 2 tsp lemon juice.
- Knob of butter (soya spread if dairy free)
- 1 kg Shallots peeled x on the bottoms.
- 250g Button mushrooms washed and stalks trimmed .
- An 8″ stalk of rosemary.
- 200 ml Soya single Cream.
- Handful of fresh parsley.
Always lightly oil the Hot Pot before use this helps with cleaning and preservation of the Hot Pot.
- Heat the oil in a large heavy sided frying pan medium high heat, Add the Chicken and brown on all sides, put in the Hot Pot/Slow Cooker.
- Stir in the stock, Wine and Bouquet Garni. Bring to the boil stirring, season well and pour over the chicken in the Hot Pot/Slow Cooker. Add 2 tsp lemon juice.
- wipe out the frying pan add a knob of butter (dairy free) . Throw in the whole mushrooms and shallots and fry until browned and aromatic. Add to the Pot with the rosemary and stir well. leave on low for 6-8 hrs.
- 15 minutes before serving, with a slotted spoon Remove all the chicken and veg to a hot plate, then pour in the cream and chopped parsley whisk well. Now put the chicken and veg back and cover on high for 15 minutes.
I serve this with Polenta and green beans, this would also be nice served with mash potato. For gluten free use mash potato.
Onion tart from Alsace
Is there anything more gorgeous than lots of onions cooked with butter for up to an hour? In this recipe, they’re simply combined in a shortcrust pastry case with egg yolks and cream then baked. This is the sort of tart the French do so well. Go easy with the nutmeg – a soupçon is enough but still makes a difference.
Parsley adds fresh flavour to sauces, salsas and pestos, and can be used as a garnish. Check out our recipes using parsley, from tabbouleh to pasta dishes.
