About this recipe: My family love roast guinea fowl as a change from roast chicken. This is an easy to prepare recipe that calls for little more than guinea fowl and a bunch of aromatic fresh herbs. You can get creative by mixing and matching herbs as you wish.

An extremely good Christmas lunch for three. It looked and tasted delicious. I actually bought two birds, as suggested in the recipe, and there were leftovers from one, then a whole bird to eat cold over the next couple of days. - 08 Jan 2015
