Squab is a true delicacy in the bird world. Roast whole for a special table presentation. As with most specialty poultry it is best served medium to medium rare. Roast quickly in a high heat oven at 400 degrees. Serve roasted vegetables and a earthy grain such as wheat berries or farro as wonderful complements.
