Subject: RE: WHY 4 & 20 Blackbirds baked in a pie?
My copy of Mrs. Beeton's Household Management (1908 edition) has a recipe for Rook and Bacon pie in it. Yumm. She says rooks have a good flavour but are prone to drying out, hence are not suitable for roasting... so I guess very much like pigeon. Anyway, I'll give it a try and let you know.
