Roast Partridge with cream sauce

Please wait...

A succulent roast partridge drizzled with cream as it bakes. This dish is undoubtedly the favorite of my family and friends who are hoping for an invitation to our table.

By slicing and cutting the partridges before serving, it is avoided that the guests are injured with small bones or invisible pellets sometimes introduced into the flesh.
