Coq au vin awaiting cooking

Coq au vin is a traditional French dish that is said to have originated in ancient Gaul, however the recipe was documented only in the early 20th century. Nevertheless, it is accepted that it has existed as a dish long before that. A similar dish called poulet au vin blanc was registered in a cookbook from 1864.

Though the word coq in French means rooster, most recipes for coq au vin call for capon or chicken. The typical wine used for this dish is Burgundy wine, however many regions of France use local wines.
