Roman Recipes: 1000 larks tongues

The recipe can be used as a delicious apetizer for mealtimes, or as a snack when entertaining

Okay, not practical, nor likely, but Rich Romans liked it.


  • 1000 larks
  • Red wine


  • Catch 1000 larks. They must be caught alive to ensure the meat is fresh. (Slaves are used for this process)
  • Kill the birds by breaking their necks.
  • Prise open the mouth by folding back the top beak.
  • Cut out the tongue.
  • Marinate in red wine overnight.
  • Strain off the wine and serve.
