In Lombardy we make this with various small birds, including thrush, but here it works very well with quail. If you don’t have a rotisserie attachment for your barbecue you can use long metal skewers with two quails per skewer threaded in the same way. Traditionally it’s served with polenta – of course – but you could offer salad, boiled potatoes, rice or whatever accompaniment you like alongside. This dish will only be as good as the vinegar you use – you want an authentic Balsamic di Mode
