This dish is from Alsace, the region in Northern France that was at the center of much conflict throughout the first half of the last century. While normally made with chicken, the Guinea Fowl provides a more robust, deeper flavor, but not as strong as duck or partridge.
Well, what is a Guinea Fowl? Or, maybe we should define it by what it is not….a chicken….not even remotely related. The bird is indigenous to Africa and was highly regarded by the Greeks and the Romans. The Portuguese were the ones to import the birds from Europe in the 16th century from Guinea. The birds are difficult to domesticate, fly (unlike a chicken), and exhibit dominant characteristics. And, even though not too common in the “New World,” Guinea are still very popular in Europe with annual consumption of about 100 million….well, they must be delicious!
The dish is enhanced with tarragon and cream, both classical French compliments for poultry.
