In his 1807 Almanach des Gourmands, gastronomist Grimod de La Reynière presents his rôti sans pareil ("roast without equal")— where the idea to put a duck and chicken inside a turkey. Turducken is a delicacy and a great recipe for celebrations such as Thanksgiving. In the United Kingdom, a turducken is a type of ballotine called a "three-bird roast" or a "royal roast".
No offence intended, and certainly to each their own, but turducken didn't do it for my taste buds. Guess I'm just a traditional gal, who likes her turkey at Thanksgiving. Chicken any other time, and duck, almost never.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
