Friday night and the youngest daughter and I seem to have covered a lot of ground including a general discussion around last night’s Question Time and the general unpleasantness of Rod Liddle.
By way of compensation she put in an order for pasta bake, chocolate and coke, and I cooked a partridge.
The partridge was browned in hot oil for a few minutes. Chopped ham was added along with a sliced onion. It was all allowed to cook. As it took on colour a good shake of sherry vinegar went in, followed by some white wine, a bay leave and few strands of saffron. As that started to cook a diced potato went in along with a carrot which had undergone similar treatment. A few pine-nuts were shaken over just before the lid went on for an hour under a low heat.
Ten minutes or so before we ate I stirred in a handful of chopped kale. It was all very good and we listened to Courtney Barnett.
There was also a lot of garlic along the way – fresh from the garden. Let us hope we can have some next year after the bastard squirrels have been at work at what was planted last weekend.
We had partridge cooked to EXaCtly the same as yours just substituting cabbage for kale! Recipe cut out of a long forgotten newspaper, you must have done the same! Love from us both Gill

But were you listening to Courtney Barnett? She is a great new feisty Australian singer/songwriter – Sarah should be out there buying up all of her records!.
My recipe came from a book by Margot Henderson who probably got it from the same newspaper clip. We have a lot of kale in the garden that needs eating up and I appear to be the only one that eats it.love Ralph
