Brilliant price for pheasants (at least in London). The 99p delivery charge is per order; not per bird. The best price I can find elsewhere is around £5. Abel & Cole tend to be extortionately expensive for most things but there must be a glut of pheasant somewhere! I got six delivered last week and they averaged around 700g each.
Pheasant tastes so much better than chicken but can be dry when roasted so try Delia's recipe here:http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/one-pot-meals/pot-roast-of-pheasant-with-shallots-and-caramelised-apples.html
If I were having my last meal on Death Row, the above would be it. Also great as an alternative to turkey at Christmas. Delia tends to over-complicate things. If you don't have the time or inclination the recipe is just as good slightly simplified. Forget the Calvados; onions are as good as shallots; Bramley apples are better than Cox's and there's no need to faff around with the apples (stew them simply). Great recipe otherwise!
