Baked Bird In Bird In Bird

This is a fantastic show piece of a recipe, I'm not really sure what to call it! You bake the birds in pastry, but the pastry isn’t meant to be eaten! So it's not a pie, And it's not really a roast!!

But! I couldn’t think of anything else to call this recipe, So Bird in Bird in Bird it is!!!!

You can of course make this at any time of the year if you so wish, But obviously a grand occasion calls for it, and it also has the added benefit of eating great hot as a main course, or, cold for lunch with pickles, I’ll let you guys be the judge, this really is a great show piece if you’re having a dinner party or something special

You’ll see a theme running through this recipe, so if you’re not to savvy at boning out birds! I’d ask your butcher to do this for you
