dunno about fantastic....

2 large heads garlic, whole and unpeeled
Approximately 1 quart (1.1 litres) chicken stock
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 shallots or 2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 head celery, finely chopped
14 ounces (400 grams) risotto rice
2 wine glasses dry white vermouth or dry white wine
Sea salt
1 good handful fresh thyme, leaves picked
Freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 ounces (70 grams) butter
4 ounces (115 grams) freshly grated Parmesan
51/2 ounces (155 grams) shelled and peeled almonds, lightly crushed, cracked or chopped
2 handfuls coarse fresh bread crumbs
Olive oil

For the basic risotto: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Roast the whole garlic heads on a dish in the oven until soft, about 30 minutes.
Stage 1: Heat the stock. In a separate pan heat the olive oil, add the shallots or onions, garlic, and celery, and fry slowly for about 4 minutes. When the vegetables have softened, add the rice and turn up the heat.
Stage 2: The rice will now begin to fry, so keep stirring it. After a minute it will look slightly translucent. Add the vermouth or wine and keep stirring, it will smell fantastic. Any harsh alcohol flavors will evaporate and leave the rice with a tasty essence.
Stage 3: Once the vermouth or wine has cooked into the rice, add your first ladle of hot stock and a good pinch of salt. Separate the roasted garlic cloves and squeeze out the sweet insides into the risotto. Add the thyme and black pepper to the risotto. Turn down the heat to a highish simmer, so the rice doesn't cook too quickly on the outside. Keep adding ladles of stock.
Stage 4: Remove from the heat and add the butter and Parmesan. Stir gently. Place a lid on the pan and allow to sit for 2 to 3 minutes. This is the most important part of making the risotto, as this is when it becomes outrageously creamy and oozy like it should be. Eat as soon as possible while the risotto retains its perfect texture. In a frying pan toast the almonds and bread crumbs in a little olive oil until crisp and golden. Season with a little salt. Set to one side. Serve the risotto with the toasted almonds and bread crumbs sprinkled over the top. Lovely.

but it's good

oh and
lentil soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 pound lentils, picked and rinsed
1 cup peeled and chopped tomatoes
2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground toasted cumin
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground grains of paradise

Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, carrot, celery and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes. Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin and grains of paradise and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35 to 40 minutes. Using a stick blender, puree to your preferred consistency. Serve immediately.

4 whole poussins, dressed, rinsed under cool water and patted dry
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cups balsamic vinegar
2 heads garlic, cut in half
1 onion, quartered
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon plus 1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil
For the Eggplant and tomato gratin:
1 teaspoon olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons for bread crumbs
1 small eggplant cut into 1/4-inch slices
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup olive oil, for sauteing eggplant
1 large vine-ripened tomato, cut into 1/4-inch slices
Drizzle olive oil
3/4 cup fine dried bread crumbs
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chiffonade

Season the poussins with salt and pepper. Place in a large zip-lock bag. Add the vinegar, garlic, onions, and rosemary. Seal completely and place in the refrigerator. Marinate for at least 2 hours, turning occasionally. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Remove poussins from the bag and place on an oval clay baking dish, with a lid. Lay the onions and garlic around the poussin. Add 1/4 cup of water and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and continue to bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
For the Eggplant and Tomato Gratin: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease an 8 or 9-inch porcelain round or oval 2-inch dish with 1 teaspoon of the oil. Season both sides of the eggplant with salt and pepper. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, add 1/2 cup of the oil. When the oil is hot, pan-fry the eggplant until golden on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. **Add more oil if needed. Remove from the heat and transfer to the prepared pan. Arrange the slices in 1 layer over the bottom of the dish. Season both sides of the tomatoes with salt and pepper. Arrange the tomatoes in 1 layer over the eggplant. Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil. In a small mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the tomatoes. Place on the top rack in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 2 minutes before slicing.

To serve, place each poussin on a serving plate. Serve with a wedge of the Tomato and Eggplant Gratin. Garnish with basil.

you can sub in boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the game hens
to reduce marinating and cooking time
bake at same heat just watch the breasts (tee hee!) carefully
