Stuffed guinea-fowl

“This recipe comes from Normandy in France, where we had a holiday home and where all the farmers make their own cider and calvados, which you can buy everywhere. There is also a very beautiful cider route that takes you through lovely old villages set in a delightful landscape”

« I dreamed up this recipe when I was living in Houston and used to give cookery classes. In a previous class, I had taught my American students to make confit of duck, which was one of their favourites, along with Tarte Tatin, so I decided to combine them !
