I found this recipe in a folder deep in my file cabinet. It was written in my hand on radio station stationery and dated 1988. I remembered it only vaguely. So I cooked it and liked it enough to know that it’s not an original recipe of mine, but I wish I had thought of it.

It’s very French in style and turns the chickenlike Cornish hen (which I rather like anyway) into something wonderful. It’s worth trying to find the demi-glace this recipe calls for. You can now buy demi-glace in
