Elizabeth, Derry and I were given a lift across country from Lucknow to Agra by a group of men who were going shooting. We all squashed together in a small van for the long journey. As the conversation in India invariably turns to food they talked about how their wives cooked the game they shot - quails, partridge, duck and more. Back in England, I tried combining game birds with Indian spices and found it opened up delicious new ways of cooking them.
