No. 0871 Pigeon delicacies (Hamaam)

Believe it or not, pigeons have been a delicacy raised and eaten in Egypt since around 3000 BC. The below bird was served to me at my company iftar (breaking the fast) just the other night.

I was unable to bring myself to eat it. It looked too much like the alien from Spaceballs minus the tail (it does look like it could just jump up and dance doesn't it?) Anyhow, I am sure some of the staff or the cats at the Swiss club made a good feast of it.
