Rotisserie chicken sold at Costco and other markets for $4.99 is a great deal. They say that they are actually losing money by doing that, but it gets you in the warehouse or store to by commodities, like food, clothing and other products that they sell. So their loss is made up in the other things that you buy.
Most are familiar with what a rotisserie chicken is.
For those who are not familiar, the chicken is skewered on a spit or a long solid rod while it is being cooked over an open fire, such as in a fireplace or over a campfire, or roasted in a rotisserie oven.
The rotation of the chicken on the spit cooks the meat evenly in its own juices and allows easy access for continuous self-basting.
Rotisserie cooking was popular in medieval times and in early modern kitchens that had a fire place.
The loaf of baguette that we used is a long thin loaf of French bread.
The history of the baguette according to Wikipedia is that the word “baguette” was not used to refer to a type of bread until the 1920’s, but what we know as a baguette today, may have existed well before then.
The word is derived from the Italian bacchetta which simply means “wand” or “baton.”
