Many great chefs were invited to a top flight restaurant for a late night dinner. No names are mentioned as they are about Looking for a cooking buddy taste forbidden fruits. But, the main course, the reason they were invited in the first place, was something called Ortolan. Francis Mitterrand ate Ortolan for his last meal as he was dying. It is illegal in the US and illegal to sell even in France, although you can make it Looking for a cooking buddy eat it.
The only reason it is illegal is that the bird is a threatened species.
The Looking for a cooking buddy for this New York dinner was smuggled in, according to Bourdain. So, what is this life altering meal? It is Ortolan, a small bird in the bunting family. It is a traditional French delicacy going back to Roman times. The birds are caught in nets and placed in cages covered to make the bird think Looking for a cooking buddy is Professional woman looking for a all the time.
They are fed millet, oats and figs and gorge themselves as they feed at night. When they are two to three times their normal size, they are killed, plucked cooiing roasted.
The flames in the cocottes burn down, and the Ortolans are distributed, one to each guest.

The only one I Bi attractive Cambridge stud looking for fwb might have it was my edition of Larousse Gastronomique.
