Right- I ended up roasting the chicken the Janefs proposed it and I must say that it was delicious. A friend of mine came to dinner (he will probably read this, he's a lurker) and was very pleased. Thanks Janef and all the others for inspiring advice.

Hands off that pheasant that's hanging outside my bedroom window, Stan.

I tried making 'Venison in Theakston's Old Peculier with Sticky Shallots and Garlic' last week (using stewing steak instead of venison) with a Mustard mash. Turned out very well. And Elephant Tesco even stock the dried forest mushrooms (shock horror!). (But tinned cherry tomatoes are a bugger to find anywhere - Marylebone Waitrose don't have them.)

- My poaching days are over, It's easier to call into Ashby's.

You'll pass my pheasant before you pass Ashby's. And anyway, they're out of season now, so all he can offer you is a frozen one. (Whereas the one that's hanging outside my house will be, errrr...)

Actually it is not Mustard mash, but pommes dauphinois. Same ingredients, different method of construction! Or at least it was in the magazine version - and Waitrose is the best place to find the ingredients!

That sounds like an invitation to go (hanging) pheasant-hunting in SE1... or maybe its round the back where no-one can see it.

No, I made a Mustard mash (hence the lack of inverted commas around that bit).

No, it's out the front, as the back gets the sunshine. Go on, a prize for the person to spot it!

I did Stan's recipe on another pheasant last night. Except... with sweet white wine & dry sherry instead of cider - and omitted the caster sugar. Pinky's didn't stock organic dry cider.

If the prize is an invitation to your dinner-party, then its worth going out specially to look. Or if left a bit longer, to sniff.

Do you hang it by the tail feathers until it drops, or by the neck (really gamey!) ?
