This massive roast, the proud creation of Devon farmer Anne Petch, weighs almost four stone (more than most airlines’ baggage allowance), costs Â£665, and has enough meat to serve 125 people.
It contains about 50,000 calories and takes more than eight hours to cook in an industrialducksized oven.
Anne, who runs the Heal Farm shop near Kings Nympton, said: “The True Love Roast has a bird for each of the 12 days of Christmas.
“It uses skinless breast meat from several birds of each species with flavours that work well together.”
The roast contains turkey, goose, chicken, pheasant, partridge, pigeon squab, Aylesbury duck, Barbary duck, poussin, guinea fowl, mallard-and quail with herb and fruit stuffings.
Anne added: “It takes about 45 minutes to build the roast. However, it takes at least three hours before that to bone the birds and another couple of days to make all the stuffings.
“We’ve been making smaller multibird roasts for a while, but I wanted something with a real wow factor.
“It was only when I was halfway through the first prototype that I realised what a crazy idea it was. But I still think that next year we’ll have something even more spectacular, perhaps a 21-bird roast.
