Chef’s note:
Pheasant is free-range and high in protein, nutritious and delicious. You can cook many recipes with pheasant, from chilli and curries to ramen soup and pâté. Never roast a pheasant after Christmas as it will be tough – it’s better to casserole it after this time.

  2. Add the pheasant and cook until the meat has whitened on the outside.

  3. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.

  8. Add water to the cornflour to make a smooth paste and stir into the pot to thicken.
