How to cook yorkshire dales partridge

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.

Cook thoroughly.

About the cut

Whole Partridge

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.
