Help with my holiday feast!!
I've taken to making something less than typical for our family holiday dinners... I did a goose a few years ago at christmas, which was fun, rabbits at easter, and I feel I've got my turkey pretty close to perfect. I just don't feel like eating turkey this year, and am looking for another suggestion. I have 7 people to feed (all adults), who are fairly open to anything. The only restriction is that I don't eat pork- so no Christmas ham!
Any thoughts? I'm trying to decide if a few ducks or pheasants would be good....or if there is another thought that might work! Not sure I feel like cooking up a whole fish either.
Thanks for your thoughts!
This roast pheasant dish is extraordinary. I made it once with real wild pheasants and it was one of the best things I've ever eaten. I order pheasants from a butcher to repeat it. They were three times as large and not as flavorful, but still an excellent meal: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

Agree that pheasant is spectacular - it can be done in so many delicious ways.
If you have access to venison or other large game, it can be incredible and something a bit different. For example, seared venison tenderloin with a Roquefort chocolate sauce is absolutely wonderful.
