One more tip, it doesn't take an hour and a half to cook, more like 45 minutes. This may be because we cut the pheasant into breasts and cook them that way, similar to chicken.

Excellent, and withstands reheating beautifully. I took it to a dinner party with a crowd accustommed to eating at 4 (Michelin) star restaurants and covered myself with glory.
