3 guinea fowl
To make the pickled red cabbage, mix the cabbage with the salt and leave to marinate for 2 hours. Rinse for 20 minutes or so in cold running water, then pat dry and set aside
250g of red cabbage, shredded
60g of salt
Pour the wine into a sauté pan, bring slowly to the boil and reduce by half. While still hot, pour in the sugar, allow to dissolve then add the vinegar and cabbage. Pour everything into a kilner jar, add the bay leaf and leave to pickle
100ml of red wine
100g of golden caster sugar
250ml of Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar
1/2 bay leaf
Chop the guinea fowl carcasses and place in a deep saucepan with the rest of the stock ingredients. Cover with water, bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 3 hours. After this time, pass the stock through a fine sieve into a clean pan and reduce by three quarters. Chill in the fridge
The next day, remove the legs from the water bath and leave to cool

Drain the guinea fowl legs and pick the meat from the bones into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste
Line a terrine mould with a double layer of cling film and press in the filling, alternating between breast and leg meat. Sprinkle the julienne parsley over each layer
Wrap the terrine in the cling film and use a weight to press it down. Chill in the fridge overnight
To make the orange gel, add all of the ingredients to a blender and blitz until thickened and smooth
To serve, use a sharp knife to carve the terrine into 8 slices. Place a slice onto each plate and top with a baby chard leaf. To the side of the terrine, dot the orange purée, add the orange segments and arrange the red onion slices, frisée, coriander cress and chopped walnuts
