Today I tweeted the following after [ profile] telophase linked to <---WTF PEOPLE! D: 12 kinds of bird--water & land fowl(!)...called "True Love Roast" D: PUTS TURDUKEN TO SHAME! D:

AND when I Wikipedia-ed 'turducken' to make sure I spelled it right, I got to read this:

The largest recorded nested bird roast is 17 birds, attributed to a royal feast in France in the early 19th century (originally called a Rôti Sans Pareil, or "Roast without equal") - 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. [2] The final bird is small enough that it can be stuffed with a single olive; it also suggests that, unlike modern multi-bird roasts, there was no stuffing or other packing placed in between the birds. This dish probably could not be legally recreated in the modern era as many of the listed birds are now protected species. [1].

WHO COMES UP WITH THIS?! Do they really need to have that much meat at a sitting?! WTF!? D:

Thanks for sharing though!

I'd heard of the 17-bird roast before through TV Tropes (, though that doesn't make it any less crazy.

. . . at least it was a feast? They could have had hundreds of people to feed, which makes it slightly more reasonable. Plus, the royals probably wanted to impress people with their craziness and money. :p
