A Game of Chicken
But a funny thing happened tonight as I was cooking David Lebovitz's Olympic Seoul chicken for dinner. It's not a French dish but it's one I learned to cook in Paris. I launched into the familiar routine of skinning and separating the chicken thighs and legs, prepping four of each, just as I had so many times before. But when it came time to put the pieces in the pan, the same pan I used in Paris, I found there was no room for the legs! Yes, everything's bigger in America, the cars, the houses, the people, even the chickens.
