PostPosted: Wed May 28, 2008 11:59 am 
Ok I have checked out the links offered on the Guinea Fowl recipe links and can't spot any for Peafowl.

Anyone have any ideas where I can source some peafowl recipes??

Am working on having a gamebird BBQ around Xmas/New Year from home farmed stock so any assistance would be great.

Already have Quail,Guinea's and Duck that will be ready but now need a goose and a peafowl....might even source some pidgeons.

Information I found:

Peacock is a dark, sweet, juicy meat not unlike duck but considerably less fatty. I recommend checking the degree of fat on the carcass, and barding (draping with fat bacon or rubbing/injecting with butter or oil) if the bird is a lean one. Simple roasting or braising will bring out its unique and delicate flavor; do not overcook peafowl. A good herbal pairing would be herbs du provence with lavender and thyme, or perhaps fresh rosemary. Roasted or braised root vegetables or squashes are another good accompaniment to this delicately flavored and savory meat.

Seeing as you have a good mix, how about game pie?
the pie moulds are hard to get and very expensive though.
recipes should be available on the net but I do have a couple I could hunt out if you like.

Wow you guys are amazing.

Not sure I would have the patience to do any pies BUT a definate option that should freeze well thus giving me a treat every now and than. :wink:
