    Which roast dinner do PF members prefer?


    Edit: And it would appear that my poll hasn't been created. Your options are as follows:

    1. Chicken
    2. Turkey
    3. Beef
    4. Pork
    5. Lamb

    I don't want to know about vegetarians, nor do I wish to hear from those showing preference for more esoteric roast options (quail, guinea fowl, stallion, wild boar, crocodile etc). I'm sure they're all very nice, but they're just gonna throw spanners into my works. If you really insist, I'll allow option 6 to be gammon, but that's it.

    If you mean what kind of meat, I would have to say elk or moose, but wild boar or deer is good, and so are various kinds of reptiles such as alligator/crocodile, goana, various kinds of snake.

    For Dave's sake Astronuc, at least wait until I've edited my post to stop fussy buggers like you from taking this to silly levels!

    I didn't know that you were editing.

    I could add kangaroo. I have had that and all the meats I posted. Oh, yeah, and buffalo.

    You could combine 1 and 2 - domestic fowl.

    Domestic meat is bland after eating wild game.

    I'm glad my response was within your acceptable list even before you posted an acceptable list. :rofl:

    I do kind of wish that when you check the box to post a poll that the first post going with it would wait to appear until you were done creating the poll. Can you go back and add the poll when you edit?

    (Nevermind- it's there now)

    Hah, neither did I until my poll didn't work! :smile:



    I completely agree with you, I've had wild boar a number of times and it's fantastic. My current favourite is roast stallion (check out the riverside restaurants in Ljubljana next time you're in Slovenia).

    However, I was trying to keep it to "The Big Five", it's easier to keep a track of things...

    The thread has been visited by the poll fairy, everyone go back and vote.

    I was going to add Tofurkey for vegetarians, but it's not my thread. No fish either?

    What about squab? No roast squab? Or cornish game hens? :wink:

    Poor little things? Pigeons are everywhere! Actually, I wouldn't eat it because pigeons are sort of like rats with wings in my view. I know the ones people eat are not just plucked from the local park (well, who knows, maybe some are), but I just can't get that image out of my mind.

    I do like game birds though. My sister has a friend whose wife won't eat any of the birds he shoots, so he has to give most of them away (I guess he's allowed to eat some of them by himself). We had pheasant for Christmas dinner. :approve: Oh, duck is really good too, even farm-raised is good when it comes to duck.

    Roast chicken! It all tastes like chicken anyway. :rofl:
    The strangest I had was roast octopus.

    Moonbear, your thought process was exactly the same as mine!

    "Pigeons? Eat the little buggers, they're all over the place, they're horrible! Eurgh, they're horrible! Why would I want to eat that? Incinerate the buggers!"

    Do you like the carrots also, and don't forget homemade bread and mac and cheese.

    Sign for the Saskatoon (Steakhouse?) Restaurant which serves steaks, fish and wildgame.

    Right next to the mashed potatoes." :biggrin:

    Pigeons are virmin! I once watched a cookery program hosted by a guy called Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall, in with he cooked and ate a squirrel! with i thought was a little bit strange!

    maybe this should have gone in the "What weird food do you eat?" thread
