Pheasant Roasting Tips

  • Let the meat come up to room temperature before cooking.
  • There's not much fat on a pheasant. Remember to baste frequently.
  • Always ensure pheasant is fully cooked before eating. You can check this by inserting a skewer in the thickest part of the meat and checking that the juices that come out are clear, not pink or red.
  • Don't forget to rest the meat before carving. This allows the meat to relax and distributes the juices throughout. A general rule of thumb used by chefs for resting meat is 1 minute for every 100g of meat.
