EMILY: How’s the squab?
RORY: It’s good.
LORELAI: It’s the best tiny, weird bird I have ever eaten.
Squab is the meat of a young domestic pigeon, typically under four weeks old, served as a delicacy. In the US, squab is seen as a luxury food, and is expensive. It may be served roasted or grilled, and the meat is moister and richer in flavour than more common poultry.
