A Date with Poulet Aux Câpres

By nature I am an unusually happy person. As bizarre as it may sound cooking for loved ones excites in me great pleasure. I find it quite therapeutic to satisfy the hunger of my family and friends: sadly often to the point of satiety. On Monday I did something directly opposing my nature; I decided to cook a gourmet meal for myself. I cook frequently but cooking for one never appealed to me, consequently limiting my alone time meals to simple, effortless dishes.

For the last couple months I’ve been in a dually pensive and reflective state. I’ve focused on growth through avid reading while working to solidify my role as a virtuous woman. In all this introspective study, I’ve discovered that in terms of my meal preparation I continuously slighted myself. I therefore decided to reconstruct Le Giverny’s Poulet Aux Câpres for one. My intention was to recreate the dish based off memory. The goal was to do for me what I joyfully do for others. Little did I know that I was embarking on a journey of self-discovery.


I collected the ingredients from my pantry and refrigerator: chicken breast, capers, garlic, butter, Dijon mustard, white wine, red cabbage and my personal twist beets. I seared the chicken in butter and a dab of olive oil. I then proceed to build the dish one layer at a time. Tasting each step of the way. I used the wine to infuse the chicken. Later I was able to build a light gravy with the remaining drippings and wine. Honoring my memory and palate, I ensured that the flavors remained true to their essence. At the end, I was quite satisfied with the outcome. Garlic-roasted potatoes and steamed Spinach accompanied the Poulet Aux Câpres. I plated the entrée perfectly.

When I sat down it dawned on me that I was on a date with myself. I savored each morsel. Satiated, I reflected on the meal and life. I questioned why I hadn’t done this before. I love cooking and no one can deny that I love to eat. Eager to serve others but neglecting myself. I concluded that I had been consumed in my need to take care and ignored my obligation to me.

I will continue to cook for friends. However, I pledge to cook my date night meals with the same passion and vigor given those prepared for loved ones. The Poulet therapy put me in remembrance. I’m in a place in life where I can relish in my company. Although I’m still developing I like myself.
