Information about Partridge

We have the opportunity to obtain a considerable amount of partridge; breasts in particular. We've not had this fowl before and don't wish to go further until we know what it tastes like. I realize it's a bit like asking how long is a piece of string but........... what does partridge breast meat taste like say relative to simple chicken breast meat.

Many thanks

Karen and Larry

Partridge is lean dark meat....simular to pheasant...with an earthy taste.
Prepare as you would pheasant or quail...Do not over cook.

Would jump at the opportunity.

Agree with my Uncle Bob, it is a red meat. And not much fat at all. Ain't no how like chicken.

Has to be cooked rare or else it becomes very tough.

But it is worth the effort.

Just wish I could find the buggers here.

I'm with Aunt Dot, I'd jump at it. My father used to love a partridge breast in a pot of baked beans and salt pork. I like to quickly fry the breasts in butter, or use as fondue meat.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
