Nicolas Sarkozy Prefers Poultry

Chicken Fricassee

In an interview with French presidential chef, Bernard Vaussion, the AFP got an inside scoop on the eating habits of Nicolas Sarkozy as well as previous heads of state. Former President Jacques Chirac “loved lamb in all its forms” and foie gras. While Sarkozy has not overturned the absurd rule leftover from Chirac's wife that no women get hired in the kitchens, the health-conscious president has done away with the tradition of serving cheese after meals and prefers "light, balanced meals and poultry to red meat." This Lemony Chicken Fricassee with Shallots and Morels is definitely Sarkozy-friendly. Instead of a rich white stew, F&W's version is simply crisped in butter and finished with lemon for a lighter, seasonal take on the classic dish.
