    So, for awhile now I've been sorta obsessed with the turducken. Its a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken with two kinds of stuffing. A complete gastric monstrosity, it takes 12 hours to cook and even longer to prepare. Many people believe it had its start in the south in the late 80's created by Louisiana Chef Paul Prudhomme, but upon digging you find the similarities with the turducken and a similar dish the turkey royale from Europe make it more likely an American apprpriation. Since its meteoric rise to fame in the early 90's it has since gone through other interesting variations such as the pigturducken and in South Africa the ostritchturducken.

    Nevertheless, every xmas and thanksgiving I've always spent the week prior thinking "THIS will be the year. This will be the year I make a turducken!" But it always fizzles out. Partly due to the labour, partly due to the cost (making one right could run you up to $100), but mostly because the thing is a monster feeding 20 people.

    Living in Vancouver has made the prospect even more unlikely seeing as everyones a freaking hippy and those that arent vegetarian/vegan/lacto-octo would still insist on organic free range everything, as if the process werent hard enough.

    So, although it saddens me to say it, this thanksgiving year will be no different.

    But one day, mark my words, the turducken will be mine.
