I saw these at the store the other day. I looked it up and understand that they are an emasculated rooster. Are they of a certain age? How do they differ from other poultry? What is the best way to prepare them?
Thats funny. At work once a month we do a renissance dinner. A acting company comes in.KIng Arther, Lancealot and Quienaver (sp) and of course merlin. I would do midevil fare and even have a small role. When Arther was about to behead a guest I would come in with my steel and cleaver and invite everyone to dinner. Arther would throw his sword at my feet and bow!! I wish I got royalties
Another great book about 13th century cooking and eating habits is "Fabulous Feasts". It is mostly a reference book, but has a number of recipes towards the end of the book. My favorite chapter though is the chapter that details food laws that governed the markets in 13th century London.
