How The Hef is celebrating 50 years of the Playboy Club

The Truth or Something Beautiful?
elcome to the third issue of Retro Magazine. This month you’ll notice that we’ve altered a few things. The major change is we’re now called Retro magazine... You were calling us that anyway and surprisingly it hadn’t been used by another style magazine so we decide to snaffle it up. After the fantastic response we got from the style sections, we’ve decided to go into cahoots with Location Works, who are the biggest suppliers of properties for film and TV in the UK. They’ve got a spectacular range of properties which we’ll be getting the keys to and letting you inside to have a snoop around (page 36). We are also pretty chuffed to get an interview with the fabulous Paloma Faith, who epitomises what we stand for: classic influence with contemporary styling. We think she’ll be one of the big stars of the next decade (page 30). We’re also focusing on two iconic brands that are celebrating this month: Factory with the opening of their new club FAC251 in the former site of the Factory Records offices (page 40), and Playboy Club, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a spectacular array of 50 parties in 50 cities in 50 countries, all on the same night (page 46). We hope the Hef’s pacemaker is fully charged. We’re loving the feedback, so keep it coming. Bruce Hudson Editor Retro Magazine firstname.lastname@example.org

You are looking at about 1 hour for the dish to be cooked. cut small or on an angle to increase the surface area. Take the chicken out. Once you are happy that it’s cooked take the chicken pieces out and add the fried mushrooms while kicking up the heat to reduce the sauce. Return the chicken to the pan and serve. Just before returning the bacon and chicken to the pan add the chopped garlic. Don’t use a stock cube. Season the chicken with salt & pepper and place skin-side down in the casserole. . Remove and put to one side. If you can’t be bothered to make chicken stock try and get the fresh wet stocks that most supermarkets carry. everything will get too salty and kill the flavour of the chicken. Set to one side. flambéing it to get all the extra flavour into the mushrooms. Bring to a gentle boil. Always make sure someone is around to see you do this…it looks impressive and everyone will think you must be a serious chef even if it does cost you an eyebrow from time to time. You want to develop a golden colour to the skin as this is where the deep flavour will come from. Add thyme and bay. If you want you can dice all the veg relatively small to give the dish a more refined look or leave them chunkier to make the whole thing more peasantry. cover and reduce to a simmer. If there isn’t enough wine in one bottle to just cover what’s in the pan make up the rest with chicken stock. Put the chopped onions. Fry your mushrooms in a little butter in a separate pan until golden brown. Better to use water than a stock cube. The more flour you use the more the sauce will thicken. The chicken should be soft but not falling off the bone. Cover with the red wine.Recipe A large jointed chicken Half a dozen rashers of unsmoked streaky bacon 2 onions A large carrot A stick of celery 2 or 3 cloves of garlic Sprinkling of flour Slosh of brandy Chicken stock A bottle of red wine A few sprigs of thyme A couple of bay leaves Butter Plain flour Large handful of small brown mushrooms Cut the bacon into strips and fry off with a little butter in the bottom of a large casserole until they are golden brown but not burnt. Make a beurre manié by taking some butter and forming a paste with the flour. Better to add crumbs of the beurre manié gradually because you can’t take it away once it’s in the pan. Taste and adjust the seasoning if it needs a little pepper or salt. At the last minute deglaze the pan with a slosh of brandy. carrots and celery into the pan. But don’t cut them straight through. Drop the beurre manié into the sauce and stir on the boil until the sauce looks thick and glistening. You have to be prepared to give up a whole bottle of decent French red and if you want to be bang on the money it should be Beaujolais. Once the skin looks beautifully browned turn the chicken over and briefly colour the flesh side. It should look like a white gobstopper. Put shit wine in… you’ll get a shit flavour out.
