Chefs Recipes: Guinea Fowl with Boudin Blanc by Stephen Crane of Ockenden Manor

As summer moves into autumn, game season is upon us. From rabbit and venison to duck and pheasant, game’s very much on the menu. We’ve turned to Stephen Crane, head chef of the idylic Michelin starred Ockenden Manor, for this sophisticated but satisfying guinea fowl recipe. Note: it would be a good idea to make the boudin blanc and guinea fowl wings in advance as the wings take 4-6 hours to confit.

Recipe first appeared on Great British Chefs here.
