Roasted quails wrapped in pancetta e lardo

Serves 4



2 garlic cloves
Handful of sage
1 sprig of rosemary
1 sprig of thyme
Salt and pepper
200ml beef stock
2 Carrots
1 onion
Extra virgin olive oil
250gr sliced pancetta e lardo
8 quails
2 stalks of celery
250ml red wine

Pre heat the oven to 200*C.

Finely chop some sage, rosemary, thyme, 1 garlic clove, salt and pepper and rub over the insides and outsides of your quails.

Stuff the birds with the chopped pancetta e lardo. Put a sage leaf on the bird’s breast, then wrap the quail in a slice of pancetta e lardo. Tie together with some kitchen string.

Roughly chop the carrots, onions and celery. Heat the olive oil in a pan, and sear the quails on all sides, together with the vegertables and the remaining garlic clove, crushed.

Season with more sage, rosemary and some salt, then add the wine and let evaporate for a few minutes.

Transfer everything into a roasting dish in the oven. Cook for about15-20 minutes.

Keep the quails warm on the side (and remove the string), add the stock to the roasting juices and vegs and cook for 10 minutes, then sieve and strain. Add some flour to thicken if necessary. Check the seasoning.

Serve the quails with some rice and the gravy.
