To maintain the freshness and quality of a whole pheasant, it is recommended to store it properly. Keep the pheasant in the refrigerator at a temperature of 32°F to 40°F (0°C to 4°C). If the pheasant is wrapped in plastic or butcher paper, ensure it is tightly sealed to prevent any air or moisture from entering. Stored correctly, a whole pheasant can be refrigerated for up to 2-3 days. If you plan to store it for a longer period, you can freeze the pheasant. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil or place it in a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen pheasant can maintain its quality for approximately 3-4 months. When ready to use, thaw the pheasant in the refrigerator before cooking for the best results.
This pack contains 1 piece.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Here’s cooking instruction for preparing a whole pheasant:

1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Start by rinsing the pheasant under cold water and patting it dry with paper towels.
3. Season the bird generously with salt and pepper, both inside and out.
4. Optional: You can also add additional herbs and spices of your choice to enhance the flavor. Common options include thyme, rosemary, sage, or garlic.
5. If desired, stuff the cavity of the pheasant with aromatic ingredients like onions, citrus slices, or fresh herbs. This step is optional but can add extra flavor to the meat.
6. Place the pheasant in a roasting pan or a baking dish, breast-side up.
7. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil or melted butter over the bird to help keep it moist during cooking.
8. Cover the pan with aluminum foil, ensuring it’s sealed tightly to trap the steam.
9. Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and roast the pheasant for approximately 20 minutes per pound (450 grams). The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C) for safe consumption.
10. About halfway through the cooking time, remove the foil to allow the skin to brown and crisp up.
11. Baste the pheasant occasionally with the juices in the pan to keep it moist.
12. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the bird. Once it reaches 165°F (74°C), remove it from the oven.
13. Allow the pheasant to rest for about 10 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful bird.
14. Carve the pheasant into portions and serve it with your preferred side dishes.

Remember, cooking times can vary depending on the size of the pheasant, so it’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure it’s cooked to the appropriate temperature. Enjoy your roasted pheasant!
