  5. Put in the oven to roast for 35-45 minutes (depending on size), basting occasionally.

  6. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve the Partridge, boil the potato and celeriac in lightly salted water till both are soft.

  7. Drain, then add butter and milk. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mash thoroughly. For a lighter mash, cook the celeriac separately and blend with a hand mixer, before adding to the mashed potato, milk and butter.
  8. Once the Partridge is cooked, allow it to rest for 5 minutes under a foil tent, before serving with the juices poured over
