Where to get Turducken

Kelly in Ottawa - Guessing that you found this entry for Turducken via the Loblaws Vendor Page - Loblaws

Can you tell me what Loblaws has them? I have called Sobey's (5 of them) and Lowlaws (6 of them) and no one seems to know what stores carry them. They are all trying to order some but deliver never happens from their supplier :(
I am willing to go anywhere in Ottawa but I need one for this weekend! Cajun stuff has not been helpfull at all. I am running out of time!

Does anyone know if Loblaws is the only place where you can get a Turducken in Ottawa? Myself and some friends were interested in trying one some night - with the complete understand that it's a huge novelty. Of course, I would post the pictures afterwards!

I've never tried turducken but have deep fried whole turkey numerous times (and eaten that deep fried by others). We do this every time our brew club gets together for a "big brew" (2nd weekend of May in Ottawa, 1st weekend of June in Fredericton). Just yesterday at Costco I was envying the turkey fryer at $120. I may just have to get one if I get a bonus at work this year.

Hi folks, I'm new to this forum, but have been involved in foodie forums for a number of years. I just wanted to say that last US Thanksgiving I was invited to a friend's home for the big meal. He (a Cajun living in New York state) went through the entire laborious process of making turducken at home, including the individual stuffings for each of the birds. While the stuffings were good, the meat all basically tasted like... turkey. If that was the result of a lovingly home-made one, my advice would be: save your money.

This is kind of a novelty item. I'd love to try it sometime though! Check out this bit from the Wikipedia page:

The largest recorded nested bird roast is 17 birds, attributed to a royal feast in France in the 19th Century: a bustergophechideckneaealckideverwingailusharkolanine - bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an ortolan and a passerine. Since passerine is a generic term, it is not known exactly what kind of bird was used as the smallest in the actual roast, although a pied flycatcher has been suggested. The recipe notes that the final bird is small enough that it can be stuffed with a single olive; it also suggests that, unlike modern multi-bird roasts, there was no stuffing or other packing placed in between the birds.

It is available by request from Loblaws, but you'll likely get it frozen. It's also $100 or so.
