A roast chicken, with Japanese yams and whole garlic cloves in the pan, plus sautéed kale with lemon and a lemony gravy made with the pan juices. Just right for a rainy day and I got to work right up to dinner time. A 2001 Cheze St.-Joseph Cuvée Ro-Rée was well suited to this simple meal, though I think I like the 03 better.

    What is it about roast chicken that’s so comforting on a rainy day? Or any day, for that matter!

    It’s one of the primal things. I also love the fact that the next day it can be soup, and then the soup can become other things too.
