Stuffed Guinea HenPaolo Destefanis

This rustic dish from Italy's northernmost region, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, centers around guinea hen, a dark-meat bird with a pleasantly gamy flavor. The hen is stuffed with a pork-beef mixture that is wrapped for cooking to maintain its shape. At serving, the stuffing is unwrapped, sliced, and presented with polenta alongside it.
