Stage 6 - 4 hours

After this time, take the meat out of the oven. It will have given off delicious juices. Turn the oven up to 360°F (180°C).

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Take the meat out of the bag. Remove and discard the bones.

You will see how tender the meat is as it can be simply pulled apart with a fork.

Stage 8 - 2 min.

Serve either straight onto the table, or plated up.
This cooking method can be used for other meats (beef, veal), still with cheaper cuts.

You can improve this recipe even further by browning the meat briefly on both sides in a frying pan before putting it in its roasting bag.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Crème brulée
Crème brulée
Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...

Classic italian recipe (the name means "pull me up" or more poetically, "take me up to the sky"). It's similar to a charlotte in its structure: layers of flavoured biscuits between layers of smooth cream.
