Gressingham Corn Fed Poussin 500g

£4.25 £8.50 per kg
We might be the remarkable duck people but there's room in our hearts for other poultry too. Our poussin are grown and packed on locally approved farms and factories by our friends the Leon family in the West of France. The poussin are a breed that's naturally slow-growing, so you get meat that's young and tender yet thoroughly flavourful. Poussin is surprisingly easy to cook, considering how good it tastes.
