And let's not forget the Romans with their "En Salt II Anne In Malls". A fascinating matryoshka doll of meat. Where a chicken is stuffed inside a duck, then the duck inside a goose, then the goose inside a pig, then the pig inside a cow, and the whole thing cooked together. (Actually, if anyone has the actual recipe, I would love to get a copy.)
In present times, we have Madden's turducken and Epic Meal Time's TurBaconEpic. Nothing new, but it's it ain't broke...
Just a roast without equal for thought. I felt it fitting given that tomorrow is Thanksgiving gluttonfest.
