With temperatures dropping and leaves falling we are now truly into Autumn.
The game season is now well underway and Oxtail & Trotter have their first delivery of local pheasant being delivered Tuesday!
This bird is not only stunning to look at but is exceptional to eat. The key to cooking it is not to overcook it! If you are fed up with chicken and crave a piece of meat with a more robust kick to it, then look no further than pheasant.
In season from now until January, it makes for a rich, intensely flavoured alternative, perfect for wintery evenings, accompanied with seasonal winter vegetables and a full-bodied glass of red wine.
We will be selling oven-ready pheasants from a local estate from now until late January and also oven-ready partridges. Get your Pheasant and Partridge recipes out now!

I found this male sparrowhawk devouring a pigeon in our Audlem garden. He was so unconcerned by my presence that I was able to go back into the house to get my camera and then take many photographs from only about three metres away. I eventually left him to finish his meal. All that was visible later were the pigeon's legs and claws. A male sparrowhawk, I'm presuming to be the same one...
