Camshickenfigg is my slick marketing name for a classic Bedouin wedding dish called ‘Roast Camel.’ It consists of a medium camel, which is stuffed with a large sheep, which is stuffed with chickens, which are stuffed with fish, which are stuffed with eggs.

Believe it or not, this is not a joke (except for calling it Camshickenfigg). Deluxe Triple Bonus Points for the first listener who can prove they made this dish!
