Pollo Rosso -- Yes, ANOTHER new chicken
"This red-feathered, Italian heritage breed chicken has been imported* by a community of farmers in Pennsylvania Amish Country. Raised humanely with access to pasture, fed a vegetarian diet, with no antibiotics ever administered, every effort has been made to duplicate the stress-free and slow-growth traditions of Italy. The result -- a chicken with firm texture, thin skin, and wonderfully rich flavor." -- Pollo Rosso farmers' press release
Oh, these babies are gooood. That piquant dash of intrigue, knowing you're carving a chicken raised from contraband eggs bootlegged in from Tuscany under cover of darkest night, only adds to the savor. A special occasion chicken you'll want to roast every day.
