I've never done galantine before. Looks like a good excuse to break out a whole chicken! Plum citrus filling, I think. Anyone have advice to avoid bone fragments from the feet? He suggests trimming after the fact, but I avoid breaking bones when trimming whenever possible.

I've had the same trouble with chicken lolipops, small bone fragments. You need a really clean break. I try to use as little pressure as possible.

Gotta say Jacques Pépin is a chicken master.

I remember watching an episode of Julia Child where she did something similar just not as 'precise'. This is much easier to follow.

This is the man who made me want to be a chef. Im not sure how many of us are pro cooks or not, but anyone who is can acknowledge what a true master of technique this man is. Without talking he probably could have done that in 2 minutes, and it was effortless. In terms of exposing american cooks to fine french food, no one has done more or is more deserving of gratitude. I miss watching his videos and reading his books. Seeing this made me feel happy to be a cook again for the time being. Thanks

I love watching Jacques Pepin. The one thing that I always notice is how fluent he is with his hands. Whether prepping or actually making something, great cooks have a kind of feel for what they are doing that always amazes me. I don't think it can really be learned from say YouTube, but it sure is cool to watch.
