Description

Pheasant are a good-sized game bird, feeding 3 people each and with a delicious, gamey taste.  In general, they are more tender before Christmas, and better for casseroles and slow cooking after Christmas.  Completely free-range, they are a great alternative to chicken and is almost as versatile.  For some recipe inspiration, have a look at the Game To Eat website.

Pheasant and partridge contain a high level of iron, protein, vitamin B(6) and selenium, which helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals
