One Classy Capon

October 24, 2015


When I first picked up this issue, I was convinced a jolt of light went dancing across the image. I assumed I was hallucinating, opened the magazine, and began reading.

As I would soon find out, and maybe as some of you have guessed, ┬áthis covergirl capon is completely covered in gold leaf. This is a roasted and stuffed chicken – chicken Taj Majal – that has been literally turned to gold.

I’ve seen gold leaf used in fancy Indian restaurants, but never to quite this extent. ┬áSome day I’m going to try it.
