Dinner: 300-500 Raw Auk Birds Stuffed inside a Seal Carcass and Then Fermented for a Year

Don’t come to the table late or you’ll miss your chance! Kivaq is a Greelandic meat dish that you’ll never forget. Start by emptying the body cavity of a seal. Stuff inside a few hundred raw auk birds, feathers and all. Sew it up and cover the seams with fat. Let it sit under rocks for three to eighteen months. Serves eight.

At the link, you can watch a video of people opening and eating a Kivaq after this long preparation process.
