Beggar's Chicken

Vital Information | Nov 5, 200311:54 AM

Cabrales, the gourmet extroidinare is looking for begger's chicken in New Yawk. I once tried to do a begger's chicken dinner in Chicago for my birthday, but got laughed out of town. Can anyone truly do it in Chicago?

For background, beggar's chicken is a whole chicken wrapped in wet clay and then baked. It comes to the table in a hard case, and the diners get to crack it open and enjoy a mighty tasty treat.
