Today we’ve got a Partridge recipe.

Partridge Breasts in Sloe Gin


  • 8-12 partridge breasts
  • 8-12 rashers of unsmoked streaky bacon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 8 sprigs of wild thyme
  • 2  wine glasses of sloe gin
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Wrap each partridge breast in a rasher of streaky bacon and place in a single layer in a large oiled Dutch oven.  Drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice and scatter the sprigs of thyme over the top. Pour over the sloe gin.  Cook over a moderate heat for about an hour or until the breasts are cooked through.  Taste the sauce and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with  mashed potatoes or crusty bread to soak up the sauce.


Serves 4
