Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. In a large casserole over medium heat, brown the pheasants in the safflower oil on all sides. Tuck the sliced apples and onions in around the pheasants. Pour the Calvados over all and light it on fire. Shake pan until flames subside. Dust the tops of the pheasants with nutmeg.
Bake covered for about 1 hour, or until the juices run clear when a knife is inserted into the thigh. Remove the pheasants, apples and onions to a platter and keep warm in the oven.
Transfer juices to a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in the cream and let simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Season to taste with dried herbs and ground black pepper. Pour over the pheasants and serve.
