Roasted Wood Pigeon on Toast

Ingredients

  • 2 oven-ready wood pigeons
  • Handful robust herbs such as thyme, sage and rosmary
  • 4 garlic cloves, bashed but not peeled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 25g butter
  • 2 thick slices sourdough bread
  • 150ml red wine

Method

1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Season the pigeons generously, stuff the cavities with nearly all the herbs, and place a garlic clove in each bird. Heat the oil and butter in an ovenproof shallow pan, and spend 5 mins browning the pigeons on all sided. Remove the pigeons and fry the bread on one side until crispy and golden, adding more butter to the pan oif you need to.

2. Turn the bread over and sit a pigeon on each slice of bread. Scatter the remaining herbs and garlic into the pan, and pour over the wine. Put the pan in the oven for 20 minutes, then remove and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Serve the pigeon straight from the pan with the bread.
