At the weekend, we had B and M and their kids round for a pre Christmas Christmas. We thought about what to feed them and ended up coming up with this sort of thing – except ours was a pigeon inside a pheasant inside a duck side a chicken (I think).
We ordered it from the butcher, who deboned all the birds and did the stuffing.of each into the other. I think we’ll be eating it for the rest of the week (which is fine).
It’s quite a weird idea but then most of Christmas food is quite weird. Bread sauce? Goose? Once a year you are asked to cook an elaborate Edwardian dinner to serve to all your assembled relatives and friends. It’s unsurprising that people talk about it as a Big Deal.
