Campbell Brothers have supplied the partridge.

Prep & Cook Time: 2 hours 15 minutes Servings: 1 person


  • 1 whole partridge with legs removed
  • Red Wine Sauce
  • 2 banana shallots finely sliced

  • 5 sprigs of thyme


    1. Brown the partridge legs with some oil in a sauce pan then remove and put to one side
    2. Add the sliced shallots and star anise, caramelise the onions well. The Anise reacts with the sulphur in the onions creating heterocyclic molecules these have notes of clove, cinnamon, chili, black pepper, thyme & oregano. Making a meat dish seem even meatier.
    3. Add the browned legs back to the pan and deglaze with the red wine. Reduce to a syrup & then add the stock with a bouquet garni of thyme & bay
    4. Cook out for an hour reducing slowly. Then pass through muslin and return to the heat
    5. Keep reducing the sauce skimming regularly until it coats the back of a spoon

To Cook the Partridge

    1. Vac Pac the Partridge crown, not too tight, to maintain its shape.

Celeriac puree & fondant

  • 1 celeriac peeled
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • Salt to taste
    1. - Cut 3-4, 2cm rectangle pieces from the celeriac for the fondant - Melt the butter in a pan add the celeriac pieces & cover with water, add a little ‘flavour magic’ smoked salt and then a cartouche. - Simmer slowly till the celeriac is cooked through, remove from the pan and put to one side. - While the fondants are cooking, slice the remaining celeriac on a mandolin and place in a thermo mix wit the rest of the butter.
    2. Set to a high heat and start the machine at ½ speed. Add about 200ml water and cook for 25 minutes, (you may need to add more water to keep the puree moving.
    3. Then turn up the speed for another 5 minutes, season and keep warm.

For the cabbage

  • ¼ of a savoy cabbage julienne with the stalk & dark green leaves removed
  • ¼ pkt of cooked chestnuts finely chopped
  • 6 strips of smoked pancetta brunoise, fried off till crispy.
  • 50g unsalted butter

    3. When the cabbage is cooked add the pancetta & chestnuts
    4. Season with salt & pepper
