Cuckoo for Coq au Vin
The infomercial: Coq au Vin in a Box. He even orders it in French.
Alton's look is too cute.
To his shock and awe, Alton's wine is confiscated by customs
but a live Rooster manages to get through.
This. Just this.
This visual aid explains the profile of the wine he needed to cook with.
Powered by actual men.
It's hilarious because he decided not to redo this take.
During the entire episode the rooster wouldn't shut up. He almost lost it a couple of times.
No actual roosters were harmed in the making of this episode.
I don't ever even plan on cooking Coq au Vin. But it sure as hell was funny to watch how it's made.
I'd give ya'll the episode in its entirety, but Scripps forced me to take them down off of youtube long ago. It's such a shame, because Alton's writing is pure genius. As he often says "laughing minds are more absorbent."
