1
Preheat the oven to 190˚C/gas mark 5. Remove the wing tips and the necks from the partridge and reserve for the stock
  • 4 partridges
2
Coat the base of a large frying pan with vegetable oil and place on a medium to high heat. Season the partridge with salt and add to the pan 1 or 2 at a time, being sure not to overcrowd the pan
  • vegetable oil
  • salt
3
Brown the bird evenly all over and then place onto a tray and cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Deglaze the pan with a little water and set aside to use in the stock
4
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Drop the sprouts, followed by the parsnips and green beans, into the water for 2 minutes each. Refresh the vegetables in ice water until completely cold and set aside
  • 200g of Brussels sprouts
  • 2 large parsnips
  • 100g of green beans
5
Meanwhile, heat a little vegetable oil in a large pot on a high heat. Add the wing tips and necks and cook until a dark golden brown colour. Remove from the pan and set aside
6
Remove the partridge from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Remove the breasts and legs, and place aside to reheat for the final dish. Reserve the carcass for the sauce
7
Next, add the carrot, celery and shallots into the same pot and cook until dark golden brown. Reduce the heat, add the tomato purée and stir through for 2 minutes. Add in the tarragon, browned wing tips, necks and the partridge carcasses
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stick
  • 2 large shallots
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • 4 sprigs of fresh tarragon
8
Add enough water and pan juices from the deglazed pan to cover the contents of the pot. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat, simmer for 2 hours. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine chinoise
9
Pour into a clean pot and reduce to a fairly light consistency until it just starts to coat the back of a spoon - use a spoon skim off any fat or scum that rises to the top
10
Place a large pan on a medium heat and add the butter. As soon as the butter beings to foam, add the shallots and sweat until soft
  • 30g of butter
  • 2 shallots
11
Add the mushrooms and sauté until tender. Season with salt, remove from the heat and add the chopped tarragon to finish. Leave in a warm place until ready to serve
  • 200g of wild mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp of tarragon
12
To make the carrot ribbons, peel the carrot and square off the edges with a sharp knife so you are left with a long rectangular carrot. Use a peeler to make long even strips of carrot. Place the strips in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove from the water and leave in a warm place
  • 1 carrot
13
Reheat the partridge breasts and legs, brussels sprouts and parsnip in the oven for a few minutes
14
To serve, place the partridge legs and breasts into the middle of each plate. Assemble the roast vegetables next to the partridge, drizzle with tarragon jus and serve immediately
