  • About


  • 1 well-hung plump hen pheasant
  • 45 g ( oz) unsalted butter


Heat half the butter and oil in a sauté pan. Add the shallots and stir for a few minutes until they soften. Add the celery and continue to sauté for a few more minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a casserole just large enough to hold the pheasant. Add the remaining fat to the sauté pan and brown the pheasant on all sides. Stuff a few lovage leaves inside the bird, season, and lay it breast-side
