    Wild wood pigeon is one of the greatest wild delicacies in the UK. The rich, red, full flavoured meat reflects the healthy, varied diet enjoyed by wild birds. Our whole wood pigeons come ready to cook.

    Cooking instructions

    Roasted

    This technique works beautifully for whole birds. Preheat your oven to 180C/165C fan/350F/gas mark 4. Wash the pigeon inside and out and pat dry, then heat some olive or vegetable oil in a pan and fry the pigeon until lightly browned. Place on a hot, oiled roasting tin and cook, basting occasionally, for 10-12 minutes, or a couple of minutes more if you want it well done. Rest for 5 minutes before serving.

    Pot roasted

    This is another great way to cook whole birds. Preheat your oven to 220C/200C fan/425F/gas 7. Wash the pigeon inside and out and pat dry. Heat some oil and butter in a Dutch oven or similar hob and oven-proof lidded pot and fry the pigeon until lightly browned. Add other ingredients of your choice – for example, stock, wine and vegetables. Bring to a simmer then put the lid on the pot and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove and rest for 10 minutes before serving.
