Meat Cock

Meat Cock! An ideal dish for a picnic! :)

I've had this cookbook for years now but had to laugh when I noticed this altogether too literal translation of 'lihakukko'. Either the editors were having a bit of fun or thought the dish really meant cock, not rooster, as the 'kalakukko' recipe was translated as 'fish in a crust' since, I guess, fish have no cocks. :)

I'd love to know how the dish came to be named kukko.
