Rock Cornish game hens are perfect for seasonal cooking, because each bird makes a plentiful serving for one and tastes delicious with whatever bright, fresh vegetables are on hand. Here, you’ll learn the tricks to making them, stirring up a light lemony sauce right in the deep saute pan as they roast. Though it’s a quick, spontaneous dinner option, the author includes menu information for a dinner party, complete with a rich salad and poppy seed dessert. She explains where the hens originate, and how to find, bone, and dress them. Detailed photographs display how to take each step. A side article adjusts the menu for other seasons.
