Squab isn’t something I grew up with and, to this day, I eat it rarely. Don’t get me wrong; it’s fantastic eating it’s just that it’s a rare treat for two reasons:
- It’s a bit fussy to eat (although you can easily mitigate that if you eat with your hands).
- I sometimes struggle eating small animals. The death of a single moose serves 14 hunters and their families through an entire winter. It’s sad that the animal died for our meal but I sometimes struggle to imagine that 12 lives ended to fill a single pot.
Having said that, we’ve served squab to friends twice and found it remarkably easy to cook and absolutely delicious and really easy to cook.
