At this time of year wild birds are often available from a local butcher or farm shop. It is the season for pheasant and partridge so it is a good time to eat this sort of meat if it is your fancy. Richard prefers making pies, rather than cooking it another way, because he thinks it keeps the meat from drying out. So below is his very own Game Pie recipe.

”Game is wild, natural and free range. It is low in fat and cholesterol and considered a healthy alternative to other red meats. Pheasant and partridge also contain a high level of iron, protein, vitamin B(6) and selenium, which helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
