  • About

These pigeons, which are frequently sold under their American name ‘squab’, are reared specifically for the table. They handle differently from wood pigeons and are reliably tender, even the legs.

You will need a blender for the sauce. Stock-based sauces or dressings, like this one, will not incorporate enough olive oil to influence the flavour without some centrifugal force.
