Pheasants are elegant, delicious birds that have been a prime choice
for banquets and royalty in Europe since their introduction from China
in the Middle Ages. Their lean, tender meat is chicken-esque, but
more flavorful and succulent.
Air chilling (as opposed to
the cheaper and more common industrial water chilling) pheasants is a
more environmentally sound process that generates less waste and
further improves the flavor and texture of the bird (water chilled
birds absorb undesirable water during the chilling process).
Store whole pheasants frozen until you need them, then defrost completely before cooking.Thawing Tips
Pheasants are often brined or barded (wrapped with bacon
or pancetta) prior to roasting or basted while roasting to give them more richness and help keep them moist. Pair them with chicken-friendly ingredients like thyme, garlic, potatoes and wild mushrooms.
