Final January, I had the good pleasure of capturing Nathalie Fraise’s fantastic new cookbook, The Complete Coconut (Ten Velocity Press) which explores cooking with coconut in all its glory. Nathalie’s guide simply hit the cabinets and I could not be
prouder to have been part of its creation. You want this gem of a guide in your kitchen!

Nathalie’s method for roasting rooster thighs was a revelation for me – the pores and skin is completely crisp and the coconut oil provides a stunning trace of taste. I now discover myself making Nathalie’s rooster thighs not less than as soon as per week – they’re that good! Nathalie serves the rooster thighs with zucchini spaghetti, however do not fret that zucchini is not in season this time of yr… actually the thighs are nice with any tasty aspect.
