Label Patrol: Dolphin

Whenever you see an all-English label in a Slovak market, you know you are in for a wild ride!
(“Oh, is that what dolphin looks like? We cook dolphin in America, too!”)

It turns out “Dolphin” is a plastic bag you wrap around chicken while it bakes. Actually, I had never seen this before, but Babka swore by it. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but chicken roasting in a cracklin’ juice-givin’ plastic bag just does not appetize me… HOWEVER, we must note that Babka’s dolphin-chicken sure was delicious!

To my surprise, I returned to America for Thanksgiving to find people HERE cooking their turkeys in “dolphins”!
