Cooking heritage chicken

Steve Pope, who works with Frank Reese out in Lindsborg, Kansas, has a terrific web site that explains heritage cooking methods.

I've worked with Steve and am grateful to him for his work. Cooking methods for industrial chicken simply won't produce good results with heritage breeds. It's an educational process: heritage breed chicken is so different from industrial chicken that it must be treated differently. After all, if it were the same, why bother?

Steve came to San Luis Obispo where he demonstrated cooking heritage chicken. Think longer, slower cooking, moist heat.
