    Official Forum Bird thread?

    I see several of us have tried our hand at Galantine of bird lately. Maybe we can pool our experiences for the benefit of the general population? Every home cook should at least try this like 2 -3 times since the WoW factor is way high.

    As I mentioned a duck is not a chicken and really needs a lot more knife work, but a nice parer like the Del is perfect for the job. The only other knife needed is to break the leg to remove the bone. Yes my tying skills need practice, but I'll be doing this more often.

    Anyone else want to contribute?

    I just watched a video of Jacques Pepin making a Galantine. He makes it look ridiculously easy.
    I'd be willing to give it a try this weekend. I just need to figger out a stuffing that everbody here will like.

    I did one with a sausage ricotta stuffing and another with a quinoa pilaf stuffing.
    It's been a while....
    ....maybe another for Easter Sunday.
