Brussel Sprout Love (#210H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

If left on a desert island, Jacques thinks he'd be quite happy if only there were some chickens! For Jacques, the prize part of the chicken is the thigh and he thinks you'll agree when you try Crusty Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce served with a tasty Fricassee of Brussel Sprouts and Bacon. An inspired use of instant potato flakes to thicken a soup shows up in the fast cooking Seafood Chowder topped with fresh crabmeat. To end on a relaxing note, Jacques arranges a presentation of Stilton with Apple and Nuts to accompany a delicious glass of vintage or aged Tawny Port.

He concludes with a no-frills Greek Yogurt, Walnuts and Honey, arguably one of his fastest desserts.
