Mrs. Braun is a devoted pupil of Dione Lucas, who, she says, "started the whole tine cooking business in America" many years ago. Mrs. Braun was associated with Mrs. Lucas for more than eight years,, and the admiration was mutual. One of Mrs. Braun's treasures Is a . cookbook inscribed by the Cordon Bleu cook to "My very best and most beaiHful pupil." A fine conpiiment Indeed. For formal dinners, which might include boned quails stuffed with foie gras and garnished with green grapes, breast of chicken Jeanette or chicken with tarragon, the menus are frequently hand printed by the host. One of their recent dinners included the tarragon chicken and an English trifle perfumed with spirits which, the hostess explained, has an interesting history. Here are Mrs. Braun's recipes (with a bow to Mrs. Lucas) for chicken tarragon and for an unusual English trifle. FOULET A L'ESTRAGON 1 three-and-one-half to four pound chicken 10 tablespoons butter 1 sprig fresh tarragon 6 peppercorns salt to taste 1-3 cnp calvados or applejack 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon 3 mushrooms, finely chopped freshly ground pepper to taste teaspoon tomato paste 't teaspoon fresh or bottled meat glaze 2 teaspoons potato floor 1 cup rich chicken broth, fresh or canned 1-3 cup dry white wine 34 cup sherry wine y4 cup marsala wine 1 teaspoon currant jelly 3 whole mushroom caps . 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 2. Dry the chicken with paper towels. Reserve the chicken liver.

Heat four tablespoons of the butter in a heavy skillet and when it is hot, brown the SIDES HIND By CR AIG CLAIBORNE MAMARONECK, N.Y. Custom has It that most commuters on the New Haven railroad rush home each evening to charcoal steak and baked beans. Or an evening's outing to the nearest clam bar, pizza-palace or spaghetti emporium; ' But When he 6:55 pulls into Mamaroncek, Lionel and Marion Braun frequently dash off to the likes of vltello tonnato, lobster with mayonnaise, poached chicken or pot au leu. Both the Brauns are successful advertising executives in Manhattan, and Marion Braun's idea of relaxation after a day's pace on Madison Avenue Is to toss a fresh striped bass into a court bouillon flavored with leeks, and-parsley an&peppercorns. "On Saturdays," Mrs. Braun says, "we plan a week's menus. I find when Lionel will be home and plot the menus what's to come from the butcher, fishmonger, grocer and greengrocer. That's better than wandering mindlessly through supermarkets. "On weekends, I can make a couple of long dishes, like the vitello tonnato, that keep well through the week, or we cook something that freezes well. Nothing freezes better than beef bourgulgnon. "In summertime we have lots of gazpacho, made with local tomatoes," which most tomato enthusiasts agree have been fantastic this year. The Brauns occupy a terrace apartment with expensive and formidable views of lush greenery that extend to the horizon Mamaroneck Bay and the Mamaroneck boat basin. The terrace In the summer serves as a dining area and beyond one vine-covered wall ljfiM,lWilliuuflMfci Ft7 u.59' u.69' u49' CUT & WRAPPED TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS NO DOWN PAYMENT - BUDGET PlANffl' chicken on all sides, first entile breast, sides and back.

Transfer the mushroom caps to the small bowl and add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the skillet. Add the chicken liver and cook It until done on all sides. When the chicken is done, transfer It to a platter and garnish, preferably on . decorative skewers, with the mushroom caps and chicken liver. The chicken may be carved at the table with the sauce served separately or It may be carved in. the kitchen and the sauce spooned over.
