Might i suggest you get yourself a couple of Game cookbooks..Their loads out there..!! As the Irish sportsman is usually a One for the pot Hunter and uses all he shoots then a couple of good cookbooks are invaluable..Although there are plenty of recipes on the internet' a book is handier for reference..!!

here's one for ya.
I was just lurking through the forum and spotted this thread. Here's a recipe given to me by someone last year...they gave me the birds too, I had to cook I'm afraid. First off it calls for some potato cakes...!
Get about a pound of waxy spuds, 2 eggs whites, but only one yoke, a teaspoon of chopped capers and a dollop of French mustard. You need about 150ml of whipping cream and an ounce or so of butter...the real stuff.
Boil the spuds, drain 'em and mash 'em. Beat yer eggs and mix in the other stuff...I think they call it 'folding'..! When that turns to muck, form small cakes and fry in the butter till they are brown...not black.
Dont eat them yet...I'm serious they are sooo tempting.
4 fatty rashers.
4 ounces of butter
4 livers...w/cock, pigeon, chicken..that sort of thing
2 ounces of butter
1 glass of white wine and a tablespoon of stock
about a half doz juniper berries if ya can get em in superquinn or someplace
squeez bit of lemon too.
Preheat the oven to about 220c or 425f...no idea on gas marks sorry.
Langer the butter over the birds and chuck a rasher on 'em. roast 'em for about 15 min at most.
saute the liver in the butter an mash them. sieve it then. you now have puree so put that in the pan with the wine an stock an chuck in the berries season with lemon an salt n pepper simmer it for a few min. if you have any juice from the roast birds, chuck that in too. plonk the w/cock on the potato cakes...if you've managed not to eat them...and serve with the sauce.
.....damn it..now I'm starving!

Nothing better than a nice game pie
I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it!
I love Halloween, the one time of year when everyone wears a mask, not just me. People think its fun to pretend youíre a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending Iím not.
