Pigeon Casserole In Red Wine

Pigeon Casserole In Red Wine


  • 4 ounces bacon, diced
  • 1 ounce butter (30 g)
  • 4 pigeons or 2 wood pigeons
  • 4 medium onions, skinned and chopped
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ounce flour
  • 300 ml meat stock
  • 100 ml red wine


Fry the diced bacon for 2 minutes, add the butter (I used 1oz of butter and a dash of olive oil) and the pigeons and brown quickly on all sides.

Remove and add the chopped vegetables, herbs, salt, freshly ground pepper and flour. Mix well.

Replace the birds, pour on the stock and the wine, bring to the boil and simmer very gently for 1 1/2 hours, until the birds are tender.

Serve with red currant jelly.​
