Puffin for Dinner

Watching Gordon Ramsey's F-Word on More4 while trying to set up my new laptop, more on that later I hope. He just went to Iceland to go puffin catching. The puffin is the official bird of Newfoundland, where my girlfriend comes from, so you can imagine her disgust when they pulled the heads off the puffins ripped the breast and insides out then ate the heart raw. In my youth I did go hunting rabbits but even I baulked at the idea of plucking birds out of the air, ripping their still warm hearts out and eating them on camera. On the other hand the dish he made in the end with the cooked puffin breasts did look tasty.
