For the citrus strips, peel the orange and lemon, and hand squeeze the juice from each into a pan
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon

For the potato patties, heat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Place the potato in the oven to bake for 1 hour or until soft

To prepare the partridge, remove the legs from the partridges by cutting through the thigh joint where it meets the body
  • 4 partridges, oven ready

Continue with the partridge by pre-heating the oven to 220˚C/gas mark 7. Place the partridge crowns on a tray. Dot them with butter and the remaining oil. Roast for 10 minutes and then rest. The partridge should be served slightly pink

Strain the partridge and chicken stock, then add the split vanilla pod and the remaining citrus juice. Simmer to reduce by half. Season

Divide the potato mixture into 4 and shape into patties. Roll each patty in the sour dough breadcrumbs. Fry in some butter until crisp. Keep warm

Return to the partridge, and remove the vanilla pod from the sauce reduction. Finish with the cream and stir well
