1
Debone the guinea fowl, leaving the wing bone and leg bone intact. Insert a sharp knife at the leg bone and cut around to remove the bone.

  • 1 lemon
  • 100g of mascarpone

Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6

To prepare the cavolo nero, cut off the stem at the base and trim any large woody white veins from the leaves. Cut into thick strips and blanch in salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes, ensuring it still has a little bite. Refresh in ice water, drain and set aside
  • 400g of cavolo nero

Place a large saucepan over a medium heat and add a good dash of olive oil. Once hot, add the garlic and cook for a minute or so but do not allow to brown. Add the chicken stock and kale and bring to a gentle simmer for 3 minutes
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
9
Remove the lid and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until most of the stock has evaporated. Set aside and keep warm

Remove the guinea fowl from the oven and out of the pan and set aside to rest while you prepare the sauce. In the same pan, add the chopped thyme and remaining mascarpone and Gorgonzola mixture and the broken up chestnuts, heat through until the cheese melts and the sauce is hot
