The testina di capretto al forno dish is considered a delicacy, especially in Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia.

How to make the Testina Di Capretto Al Forno – Oven-baked Kid Head:
Clean and split the spring kids’ heads. Remove any visible cartilage. Prepare a battuto with pancetta, garlic, rosemary, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Spread this mixture over the heads, pressing lightly, so the mixture adheres tightly and covering the brain portion with aluminum foil, so it does not burn while cooking. Grease a baking pan and bake in the oven at 475°F for 2 hours, occasionally basting with white wine.
