Legend has it that this dish was served to Napoleon the night before his victory in the Battle of Marengo (not far from Milan, Italy, on June 14, 1800). Apparently, the Emperor rather liked it…
Feel like a great French chef and make coq au vin! Our version is lighter and simpler to make, but will still result in a dish worthy of a good restaurant.
Marsala wine has been made for centuries in the Sicilian port of Marsala. The name comes from the Arabic « Marsah-Allah», which roughly means «port of God». This fortified wine was discovered at the end of the 18th century by an Englishman, who saw its potential to compete with already known Spanish and Portuguese sherries and Madeira wines. Admiral Nelson, and the British fleet, became so fond of Marsala that after their success at Trafalgar, Marsala became known across the British empire as the «Victory Wine».
