Pheasant might traditionally be the poor man’s holiday centerpiece—without money to buy meat, a pheasant could be hunted wild and dressed at home. But it’s also a popular choice for the British royal family to serve for dinner on Christmas eve.
I understand why—pheasant tastes like the most flavorful chicken you’ve ever tasted, and then some. The flavor is rich and robust, without being gamey. It’ll make for a meal you’ll be talking about for many Christmases to come.
A whole pheasant is about the size of a chicken and roasts to a perfect golden-brown in about as much time.
Whole bird, ships frozen.
