  • 1 Partridge

Step 1 Pre heat the oven to 170c
Step 2 Put the Partridge on a small roasting tray and surround with the pear quarters
Step 3 Mix the honey, oil and thyme in a small jug and season with salt and pepper
Step 4 partridge and pears
Cover the Partridge breast with the bacon, then drizzle the honey and oil mixture over everything
Step 5 Put in the oven to roast for 30-40 minutes (depending on size), basting occasionally.
Step 6 20 minutes before you are ready to serve the Partridge, boil the potato and celeriac in lightly salted water till both are soft.
