Like other game birds, a wood pigeon can easily be overcooked, which is as disastrous as a ‘well done’ fillet steak. I strongly recommend that whatever you decide to serve with your pigeon, you get it ready almost to the point of serving before you pop the birds into the oven. Don’t get caught rushing around putting accompaniments together at the last minute, as the bird will continue to cook as it rests.
