Unusual and un-PC, but I have to know! Ortolan?

J.L. | Jun 4, 2009 01:18 AM

Hello fellow 'Hounds,

I am curious about the eating of ortolan (ortolan bunting) in France, as it stands in 2009. I understand that it is illegal to sell ortolan, but I am uncertain about the rest of the story behind this gastronomic tradition.

Can someone shed some light?

As always, thanks in advance!
