If you have a bit of stock to braise the quail in so much the better but water will do as the bacon and cognac used in the recipe will provide enough flavour.

Ingredients

  • 100 g ( oz) stoned raisins
  • 3 petit suisse or 4-5

Stuff the quail with this mixture, truss them and season the outside skin. Heat the butter and oil in a sauté pan and brown the quail on all sides. Remove them from the pan. Cut the bacon into lardons and brown in the pan. Pour awa
