I've actually published (sort of) a paper on the phylogeny of culinary
characteristics.  "Poultry" is the ancestral flavor for Tetrapoda,
tetrapods ancestrally go with white wine, and their meat is ancestrally
flaky.  (Bear in mind, I was unable to sample a coelacanth or lungfish, so
these might have more general distribution.)
