I've always wanted to go somewhere where they're serving turducken.

I think it might taste pretty good, but I certainly wouldn't want to try making one.

I'm in. What kind of wine would go best with a triple-play fowl?

A nice spicy Syrah, perhaps?

they used to serve things like this at medieval feasts - so I think he's a bit vain to claim he invented it!

Doesn't seem too smart to name any delicacy something starting with "turd"...

The original turducken had way more fowl involved. Do you know how many small game birds you can fit into a chicken? It is actually quite good. I had to make it once in chefs school. Mrs. cav and I joke about it around the holidays. A good California Zin with some backbone would do nicely as a match. Bonny Doon's 'Cardinal Zin' comes to mind, or Ravenswood.

It is ehBeth, it is. A friend is taking us to Rodney's tonight, and as this is my only 'day off' this week, I'm really looking forward to it.

Cajuns may not have 'invented' turducken, but they did invent oyster loaf. Now I have visions of a large fish, maybe a sturgeon, stuffed with smaller fish, shellfish, crustaceans, bivalves, univalves and then the sturgeon's own caviar. Wink

why didn't they call it something else like...

Duckturken
Or Stufducktur
Or Duckstufturen

Anything but what they called it...

It has to do with the order of the birds - it's named from the outside in.

turkey outside - tur
duck inside the turkey - duck
chicken inside the duck - en

I think we would need H.R. Giger on board to invent the Enducktur, but it would be way cool.

I would LOVE to try cooking one myself, but it would probably look like the Boston Massacre if I tried to de-bone everything myself! There's way too many twists and turns with the knife for me....with my luck I'd be hacking away and realize my finger was in there somewhere! Why can't they just make birds with zippers! I'm pretty good with them!! Get your minds out of the gutter you guys!! LOL

I have a copy of Prudhomme's "Louisiana Kitchen" cookbook published twenty years ago or so, and the recipe is in there. If he's the first one to write down the instructions for how to do it, then he can claim he invented it if he wants.
