Chef of the moment Stuart Brioza stopped in to the Bon Appetit offices recently and showed them the secret to the restaurant's signature deep-fried quail (CA's state bird, in case you've been living under a rock for the past year and missed the whole quail trend). Obviously, this is one of those dishes that's probably easier to just go order at the restaurant than make at home -- yes, even though you probably can't get a rez until after Memorial Day -- but it's fun to see how the dish is done and makes you appreciate Brioza's ingenuity as a chef even more (hint: it involves dredging in pumpkin seeds).
