Wild Scottish Red-Legged Partridge

Cooking & Serving
Red-legged partridge can be simply and quickly roasted. Don't overcook and dry out this game meat; serve it pink and juicy. A pan sauce with the drippings will go nicely with partridge and any accompaniments such as autumn vegetables, cabbage or fried potatoes. Bacon and chestnuts, wild mushrooms, porcini powder and foie gras are all flavors that play well with partridge.
