When game season is underway (October 1st – February 1st for England, Wales and Scotland) there is an abundance of high quality, outdoor reared pheasant meat available. Pheasant is a delicious, healthy, sustainable game meat.
Are you looking for something beyond roast pheasant or pan-fried pheasant breast? Take a look at our recipes below for some inspiration on how to spice up a traditional pheasant feast.
Pheasant bought from a local game dealer or butcher will have been reared and sourced locally meaning food miles are low. It has a high nutritional value, is low in fat and cholesterol and is relatively inexpensive. Additionally, it contains high levels of iron, protein, vitamin B (6) and selenium – vitamins and minerals vital for maintaining a healthy immune system.
Due to the traditional way pheasants are reared – and unlike many supermarket options – their meat is naturally free from artificial preservatives, hormones or steroids.
