[MUSIC] Oh my God, roast again? I may a roasted.
There's nothing better, right? There's two roast chickens that I
literally I dream about the Zuni roast chicken, the Judy
Rodgers roast chicken where she salts it the night before.
And then roasts it and serves it on the crunchy
bread, almost like the panzanella bread, that the heels that
the chicken roasted on. So the juices of the chicken
would run down into the bread as it was roasting.
I mean, it's- That sounds incredible. It's the most magical
chair, like I get to San Francisco, I go to
Zuni Cafe, And then, one of my dear friends and
mentors, Jonathan Waxman, the Waxman roasted chicken. Half roasted chicken
in his wood fired oven, same thing. Salted liberally the
day before with salsa verde on it. Salsa verde has
mint and tarragon and flat leaf parsley and capers and
anchovies and olive oil. Just slathered on top of it
with a side of his fried potatoes. I dream about
it. I literally dream about it. There's a place in
Boston Hamersley's. Mm-hm. And he is known, Gordon is known
for his roasted chicken. Again half roasted chicken, just classic
carrot, onion, celery, some lemon. And you roast it all
together and he just serves it with all that mirepoix
and just like the crunchy bits of the lemon. Just
bright, bright flavors of parsley and just like dig into
that with a glass of wine, sit at the bar
I love a rose with a roasted turkey. Beautiful. [SOUND]
