Guinea Fowls are something of a rarity in the UK, but their meat is prized thanks to its beautiful flavour. Native to Africa, the Guinea Fowl is a small bird not dissimilar to a pheasant, and lives on a diet of seeds and insects. It is often described as a cross between pheasant and chicken, and has a mild flavour. Perfect for anyone looking to branch out and try cooking something different at home.
Guinea fowl has a rich and medium-dark flavour, and is highly sought after for its delicious gamey qualities. Game enthusiasts will love this wild bird which is delicious roasted and served with seasonal vegetables and game chips.

Guinea fowl birds come into season in the autumn and are around until the winter so pair well with earthy, autumnal flavours such as mushrooms and rich jus. Think root vegetables such as celeriac and wintry fruits like quince and plums to pair with this delicious wild game bird. You could also make an unctuous terrine out of the guinea fowl legs or stuff the whole bird for a special roast dinner.
For those unfamiliar with cooking with wild game or guinea fowl in particular, it is slightly similar to chicken however it is slightly drier and contains much less fat. This makes it a great option for braising or stewing until tender. We’d recommend adjusting the typical timings as the guinea fowl is also smaller than chickens.
