Out Of Season
Brace Of Yorkshire Dales Partridge
Shelf Life: 3 Days
Can Be Frozen Great Britain
Typically eaten earlier in the hunting season, Partridge tends to be leaner than pheasant or mallard, though still boasts a fantastic and indulgent game taste and delicious texture, making for superb Autumnal centrepieces. All our game birds are wild, and caught sustainably, though may contain pellets.
These birds are sourced primarily from the Yorkshire valleys of Wharfedale, Nidderdale, and Wensleydale. Game was once a key part of the butcher’s business with partridge one of the first game birds to appear on the butcher’s block. These birds are carefully de feathered and the innards removed before being dispatched fresh. Be sure to have a quick look for shot before cooking, in the unlikely chance it was missed.
Leaner than mallard or pheasant, and with delicate flavour, take care to keep the partridge moist by wrapping in fatty bacon, or else lard well with butter if roasting whole. The whole brace can also be casseroled in cider with apples and then thickened up with creme fraiche for a deeply flavoursome Autumnal slow cook. All our game birds are wild, and may contain pellets.
