AU CHAPON BRESSAN
AWARD WINNING POULTRY FROM BRESSE
The Poulet de Bresse: The Most Delicious Chicken in France.
The Bresse Chicken is the most famous by far. Firm and flavourful, it is bred for 4 months in a meadow. Part of the Gauloise Blanche de Bresse.
They are so delicious and tender that they’ve been famous since the 1600s when the Duc de Savoie offered the most plump roosters from Bresse to King Henri IV, who praised them highly. They are raised exclusively in the small town of Bresse, which lies in the east of France.The lack of chalk in Bresse means that their chickens have lighter, thinner skeletons. As a result, the buyer gets more actual meat for the money. Furthermore, the acids in the soil of Bresse act as a bleach, rendering the feathers white and the feet blue. The grit they peck at, as well as the insects and herbage they eat all come from the same soil, adding even more to their unique upbringing. Their white color with red comb and blue feet reminds The flag of France! The Bresse chicken reflects the bleu, blanc et rouge.
