Teaser Tuesday: A Little Dinner Before the Play by Agnes Jekyll

Take two partridges and prepare in usual way. Old birds can be utilized in this recipe if necessary.

A Little Dinner Before the Play by Agnes Jekyll.

I'd given up on Agnes's recipes long before I got to her favorite way to make partridges in pastry (Perdrix aux Choux) in her chapter, "For Men Only," but I did pause to wonder what the "usual way" of preparing partridges might be. And what would it be like to live in a household where one had the choice of older or newer partridges?

This book is a collection of Lady Jekyll's 1921 - 1922 newspaper columns on food. Don't read it for the recipes; read it for the food history.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
