Wild Scottish Wood Pigeon
Frozen / 9-10 oz avg
Wood pigeon from weekend estate hunts in Scotland. These truly wild game birds forage and eat berries and heather, and get constant exercise, which gives their meat a distinctive flavor. Wild wood pigeon offers a rich gamey flavor far more intense than that of domestically-raised squab. Wild game is only available for a limited season each year.

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