These are small but are the least expensive of all game birds, serving one per person, unless they are very large.
It's really only the breast that's eaten and I favour braising, as in Braised Wood Pigeon with Cider Apple Sauce
Cheap and readily available, wood pigeon is a game bird that's well worth discovering...and Delia's scrumptious apple and shallot confit makes it even more special. Serve the confit with other game birds too.
