Rouen style pigeon
"I like working with chefs like Gill who respect the produce. There's such an investment involved in advance that I can't allow myself to supply a chef who won't fully enhance the product. What I like about going to meet Gill and his team is discovering the ways in which the produce is prepared: a reinterpretation of the traditional Rouen style pigeon, or simply according to the mood of the moment.

The Rouen Museum of Fine Arts currently holds the second largest collection of Impressionist paintings in France, just behind the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. "
