I've had turducken. It's actually quite delicious.

I think mine was made from wild game, though (excepting the chicken).

Was it deep fried, by chance, ba? My sister-in-law has one of those outdoor turkey friers, but it's only been used twice that I know of, and only for regular old turkey. Tastey, though [Smile]

THough the stuffed camel wins this pissing contest. I can make a fire pit big enough to cook a camel but where to I get a pot big enough to fit a camel, lamb, and 20 chickens.

Just out of curiousity for those having eaten Turduken. How do you carve it? Do you serve one bird and then the next or try to carve through the layers?

I think you will find as mentioned by Hugh Fearnly-Wittingstall the point is to carve right through and to get that "game pie" effect where each serving contains a little of everything but the "opt outs" can be served the initial slices which are likely to be purely the breast of the outer bird....

WRONG.

the greatest chef on TV is Alton Brown, and I will hear no arguments on the subject!

I totally agree. He is even known to get down right geeky in his explanations of why.

I like Alton's scientific explanations of "why" you do certain things but there are only so many times I can hear someone say "ah" in a single sentence. I usually get tired of hearning him talk after about 10 minutes.

My mom doesn't like him for that very reason... she also says that he's quite strange for her liking, but I love him... anyone that will tell my why my food is the way it is gets an A in my book...

Incorrect. Martin Yan could totally take Alton Brown to school. [Razz]

The best cooking show ever was Dan Ackroyd's impersonation of Julia Child. After that, I would have to nominate Pierre Frenat. His "Cuisine Rapide" was the best. Real meals that would impress guests in 30 minutes from start to serve.

Alright, I just have to add my 2 cents here...

My faves are (in no particular order):

Alton Brown (geeks can cook!)
Nigella Lawson (no fear of calories!)
Jamie Oliver
Ina Garten
