Hope you had a good Thanksgiving! I’m wondering how many people out there ate turducken–a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey. While reading about this trifecta of birds made famous by former NFL TV commentator John Madden, I learned about the rôti sans pareil (“roast without equal”). You won’t believe this:
A bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan bunting and a garden warbler. I don’t even know what some of these birds are! According to Wikipedia, you probably couldn’t make this because some of the species are endangered.
