Coq au Vin is a classic French dish with a rich history dating back several centuries. Its origins can be traced to rural France, where it was originally a peasant dish.
In the days before refrigeration, wine served a dual purpose in Coq au Vin. It not only added flavor but also helped to preserve the meat. The acidic nature of wine helped to tenderize the tough meat of older birds, making it more palatable.
