  • About

The cooking of game depends very much on personal taste. Some people like it well done, others prefer it hardly cooked at all. A happy medium would probably satisfy all tastes, though it must be remembered that all birds should not be treated in the same manner; a woodcock, for instance, should be rather underdone, while a pheasant should be cooked as much as a chicken.

Again, the question of keeping the bird is one much discussed. Freshly killed game to some people is delicious, while to others it is abominable. It should really be hung for a few days.
