Time for some l’art moderne eh? Yesterday we visited Musée D’Art Moderne De La Ville De Paris. Heard so much cool things about this museum and  was excited to finally be here. The  museum space itself is very amazing. It is minimal and clean which I learned that it was actually due to running short on financial support, didn’t turn out bad.

Other than the permanent collection, we were also here for the Robert Crumb exhibition. I have never been a fan of comics but the exhibit was beyond fabulous. We spent probably 2 hours just in this one room, it was worth every penny and second!  Crazy person daring work!

Robert Crumb

Alex is in the kitchen for roast whole chicken ce soir. Oh and it’s roasted with a veggie feast!  So Easy! Get Ready!

Start with your vegetables. We’ve got let see… cauliflowers, long green peppers, tomatoes, carrots,   onions, and whole cloves of garlic in here. Season well and put the pot in the over. Start roasting!

Meanwhile rub chicken inside out with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.  Pour in about half cup of vinaigrette (depending on the size of the chickie) in the chicken belly.

Put chicken on top of the veggies. Roast together. Let the juice and fat of the chicken come out slowly and mix with the veggies.

Roast till chicken skin turn golden!

Vegetables are now bathing in a juicy broth.

We actually roasted the chicken 2 times because we didn’t want to over cook the breast. So we cut out the breast first when it was JUST cooked and eat while we wait for the rest of the chicken to be roasted a little more.

Then finally I get my yummy thigh… smooth and juicy!


This is the man who inspired me to cook! Because no matter what I made, screwed up or not, he would tell me it’s delicious!! He made me fall in love with cooking, and watching him cook. *smile*

Zucchini for sides?

Dangerous shot

I always wish I can do that.

It is chicken thigh with roast in a tomato and cream sauce for the night. He always impresses me by how fast he cooks without messing up the kitchen! I tend to mess up the kitchen even just boiling water for instant noodles! But it’s a simple delicious dish for thigh lovers like me! Here you go:

Saute leeks, shallots, and tomatoes until magic brown. (basically fridge finds)

Seasoned and seared chicken until golden skin. Smear two spoon of sour cream on chicken. Put in oven to roast.

Came out creamy and beautiful!

Tomato roasted Chicken thigh with saute zucchini with sausage for sides. Bon appetite!
