Personal Notes:
My sister, Claire, makes the best gizzards in this world. My sister, LaGene, comes in a close second. My suggestion that one of them include the recipe for this delicacy in the Family Cookbook was rejected by each of them.

Since it was my idea to add red wine to the recipe, I feel part owner of the Gizzard Tradition and have added it to the Cookbook myself. I have given the appetizer the title of "Bonne Bouche" because some people would pass by an entry entitled "Gizzards". It is my sincere hope that you will try the "Dish fit for a King" (translation for Bonne Bouche) before you pass judgment on it. I am confident that you and your guests will serve this delicacy a second time. My sisters Claire and LaGene are both excellent cooks and one of them is never wrong.
