"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1 Medium sized Elephant (without Tusk) 3 Rabbits Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut the Elephant into bite size pieces. Add enough Brown Gravy (your choice of Type) to cover. Simmer over Kerosene Fire about 4 weeks at 485 degrees. Stiring often. This will serve 3,800 people. If more guests are expected, add the 3 rabbits. But only add the rabbits in an emergency. Most people do not like hare in their stew.
This recipe has been in the family for a bunch of generations. It was first used by Gunther Hoffmann while on a raiding party with Hans Peter the First back in the days when raiding and pillaging was in.
