Maria is a friend who had never cooked a pheasant before. So after my hunt Sunday I visited Scott and Maria ("California Transylvanian Hounds") with three birds right from the fields of Hastings.
I showed Maria how to dress the first pheasant and she learned quickly and had the other two birds done flawlessly after that.
We're on the way over to give her efforts a taste. Very much looking forward to it.
