Roasted pigeon

IMG_5656

It’s a cliché about many animals that they taste “just like chicken”, but it’s a cliché that rings true when it comes to pigeon. At least the pigeon that I had. At a recent food festival I found one street vendor roasting pigeons on a spit. Having never tried pigeon before, this was my chance to have a go.

The meat was nice and tender, and even a little sweet, though hard to get to on such a small animal with numerous tiny bones. The legs had the most meat on them, and once I dug in I was rewarded with parcels of juicy meat. The only let down here was that the skin wasn’t exactly crispy. Let’s face it no one really likes limp skin.
