There was an article on Dan Mercer, his signature recipe and his 13 sons in the Press Herald today! I was so proud to read it and to know him as a dear friend. I also am eager to make the Champagne Chicken!
The French Meat Pie turned out really pretty, and I've sampled the filling and think it's good. Next time I'm going to try this version or this one for the more complex spices. The one I made today relied solely on allspice, salt, and pepper but it's still tasty and fragrant.
