Cooking & Serving
Cooking Methods: Pan-Roast, Roast, Grill
Cooking Tips: Wild Scottish partridge has a mild game flavor and takes all manner of seasoning well. Some of our favorite accompaniments are bacon or ventreche, wild mushrooms, apples, and fresh herbs. As they're lean, barding with bacon or rubbing with butter or duck fat will help to keep the birds moist.
