Although game is most closely associated with autumn and winter, this dish from William Drabble is best served in late August when the grouse is still young and tender and blackberries are just coming into season. The tangy fruit complements the rich meat wonderfully and this grouse recipe is a fine way to bid farewell to summer.
Slow cooked turkey leg, pancetta, wild mushrooms and baby vegetables
This warming turkey leg recipe from William Drabble flavours the turkey meat with a piquant Pommery mustard sauce. If you can't get Pommery, good quality wholegrain mustard will work just as well. Pancetta and mushrooms add a moreish taste to the slow-cooked turkey, which can be served with some creamy mash or enjoyed with wild rice or brown bread.
