Colman Andrews reads from The Taste of America This week: Turducken

In the second reading from his wonderful new book The Taste of America, celebrated food writer Colman Andrews introduces us to the mythical creature Turducken - a dish that apparently dates back to Roman times

Last week Colman Andrews introduced our new series of readings from The Taste of America with a story about the humble origins of the Graham Cracker (if you missed it we've posted it to the left). 

This week, Colman has found another story to delight Phaidon readers and it concerns the origin of that mythical beast, the turducken. The name will need no introduction to American readers but to those of you reading in Europe you'll know it as a bird within a bird - or, in this case, a bird within a bird within a bird.

 

Listen to Colman read the story above and if you enjoy it please share the link with your friends. And then head to the store to check out the print version of his wonderful book or head here for the iBook version.  Meanwhile, be sure to join Phaidon club to keep up to date with all that's going on in Phaidon world and get points to use against future purchases when you buy from the  phaidon.com store.
