_The year, 1807. The man, old-school foodie Grimod de La Reynière. In his book, Almanach des Gourmands, he presents us with the rôti sans pareil ("roast without equal"), which is a turducken-esque roast of a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan bunting and a garden warbler.

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.

Happy Eatings!
