Instructions
  1. Portion game birds in readiness for serving (breasts and wing/leg so 4 pieces from each bird) and place other parts in a pan for stock. Cover bones with boiling water, season with salt, pepper and herbs. Simmer for at least half an hour before ladling out any liquid.
  2. Sauté partridge portions in butter with a drizzle of rapeseed oil until golden, adding mushrooms and season. Remove from pan. Set aside mushrooms and place partridge in an ovenware dish with glaze ingredients. Place in pre heated oven at 190 C, covered with foil, and braise whilst barley cooking on hob. Remove foil towards end of cooking time to reduce sauce.
  3. Meanwhile add barley to the frying pan with all the lovely flavours and sauté with sliced leeks. Gradually add ladles of stock, deglazing the pan and simmering the barley. It will take approx. 45mins to soften.
  4. Towards end of cooking, add mushrooms to barley, adjust seasoning to taste and blend in redcurrant jelly.
  5. Serve in bowls with partridge set on top of barley.
  6. Serves 2 generous portions

Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 120 C. Place the rhubarb into a shallow baking dish and drizzle with honey, cordial and scatter over the sugar and star anise. Cover the dish loosely with pieces of greaseproof paper and place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the rhubarb is soft but not broken down. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  2. Season the venison all over with salt and pepper and rapeseed oil. Heat a pan over a high heat and once really hot add the venison loin. Cook, for 4-5 minutes for medium-rare. Remove the meat from the pan and leave to rest somewhere warm for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Divide the rhubarb equally between 4 large plates, reserving the syrup in the bottom of the plate. Cut the loin into thick slices and lay it around the rhubarb, scatter over the chard and drizzle the reserved honey-and-anise syrup. Serve straight away.
