Poussin is the French name for a baby chicken. Generally one poussin will feed two, but if you are exceptionally hungry allow one small poussin per person. It has meltingly tender flesh and a delicate subtle taste which benefits from a boost of flavour from garlic and herbs. Serve with the Passion Cream Mini Pavlovas for the perfect special Valentine's Day supper. If you are using two birds, simply double up the ingredients.
Serve with creamy mashed potato to which a little garlic-flavoured olive oil has been added. Alternatively, serve with roasted root vegetables such as butternut squash, sweet potato and beetroot.
