There are a lot of threes connected with the new gourmet delight called turducken. Three birds – a turkey, chicken and duck – are tucked into the cavity of each other like Russian nesting dolls to make up a turducken. There are three aromas as all those birds cook together. Finally, a turducken feeds at least three times as many people as a normal Thanksgiving feast might do, so much so that in 1807, French chef Grimod de la Reynière referred to it as the “steaming trinity” of food.
