Plus The Wonder Of A Toasted Spice...And What Does This Have To Do With Madhur Jaffrey?
Anne flattens out the Cornish hen on the board to prevent it from looking like “chicken roadkill”. (She really is outrageous.) She makes a great effort with its presentation. She saves the back bone and wing tips for the freezer to make stock later.
She uses the word ROADKILL yet again, as she ties the legs together to give it a very different-from-roadkill look. She uses string to tie them together, preferring it over something like scallions, which she called far too precious. (I never even thought to use scallions, but that would certainly elevate the bird to one step above road kill.)
She adds some white wine to the calamari and tosses in the olives with LOTS of salt.
