Cooking Methods: Roast, Pan-Roast, Pan-Sear, Grill

Cooking Tips: Squab is versatile and will take all types of seasoning and marinades well. After seasoning, whole squab are easy to stuff and pair wonderfully with bread, grain, or sausage stuffing. Stuffed birds need to be cooked slightly longer than unstuffed. Be careful not to overcook; squab is best enjoyed medium-rare. If using a dry heat method, like roasting, pan-roasting, or grilling, cook quickly until meat is slightly firm to the touch and juices run clear. Basting or brushing with fat will help keep the squab moist.

We source our squab from a cooperative of farms in California’s beautiful Central Valley, where they raise the prolific King breed birds. Known for its large size and full breast, this is a breed preferred for its meat.

Inside protected and open barns, the birds are allowed to breed and rear their young in nest boxes. The mated pairs of adult pigeons feed young birds a mix of high-protein grains including soy, sorghum and corn.

The fledgling squabs have never flown and are raised until four weeks of age when they are adult size but before their muscles toughen. As with all our products, no hormones or antibiotics are ever administered.
