World Record - Roasting a whole ostrich

8w ago


If you thought your christmas turkey was a tricky thing to cook, imagine what a 55kg ostrich is like to roast. As far as I am aware, this has never been attempted before and I wonder why?.... There is enough meat on this bird to keep my entire village I live in going for a week. As you can see, the actual process is easy enough but it is just the sheer weight and size of the bird which makes it an issue.

I have never tasted ostrich but I would imagine it tastes a little bit like chicken or turkey. Atleast that's what I thought. Apparently, ostrich is a red meat and tastes a little bit like venison or beef which really surprised me actually. Well, see what you make of it when you watch the video.

Would you try eating it?
