Chris enjoys game meats, and takes advantage of various opportunities each season to enjoy a game dinner with friends or family members. In fact, he has gone hunting in the past, mostly for birds, in particular pheasant and quail, just not recently. Still, when we found a half dozen of these little birds at the market, we bought them. Inspired by an episode of Chef John Besh's New Orleans, we attempted to make Buttermilk Fried Quail. However, we couldn't find his actual recipe, and we no longer had the show on our TiVo, so we did it by (our somewhat failing) memory.
To sum up, here's our advice: Buy the book and make it yourself. The right way. Or just order quail next time you see in on a restaurant menu. That would be easy.
