    Chef PotPie's Note:

    The whole roasted animal is, in many cultures, the epitome of gracious hospitality-it is a tradition that goes back to welcoming the prodigal son by slaghtering the fatted calf for a feast. There is hardly a more spectacular main course. Given a few days, most butchers can order one for you, and very little additional work is required to produce this unique dish. From The Silver Palate Cookbook, nothing else really needs to be said!
