I'm actually going to make this dish tonight but I wanted to see if the pic taken from the cookbook works well enough here, and it seems to. Coq au Vin is an unsightly dish, the color I find unappetizing. I think they altered the perception of it by using green colored service. I have made it by the book several times but tonight I am going to experiment a bit.
One further note if you are going to send me pics, I will edit them using iPhoto because the Blogger server makes the images less colorful.
