Live Birds In A Pie

Live Birds In A Pie

Putting live birds in a pie was a form of entertainment in the 16th century. An Italian recipe book of 1549 described how to make a pie so that the birds survived and 'flew out' when it was cut open. This recipe was also found in a 1725 cookery book by John Nott.
