Guinea fowl, in season in autumn and winter, tastes like a cross between chicken and turkey, and is very lean. Here it's roasted with a fig and pistachio couscous stuffing and basted with a spicy lemon marinade to keep the meat deliciously moist. A leafy salad with fresh oranges makes a great side dish.

Guinea fowl cooked with shallots, ‘meaty’ chestnut mushrooms, peas and spinach in Madeira wine makes a great pie filling. In this modern version of a traditional favourite, the filling is baked in a pudding basin topped with a lovely, soft-textured potato pastry crust. Serve with Brussels sprouts and baby carrots.

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.

This roast guinea fowl is a sensational little meal for two, but dead easy to make. Use streaky bacon or pancetta rashers - either work a treat. Check if your poultry seasoning doesn't have salt, as you'll want to then add more salt to taste.

Guinea fowl breast is lean and healthy – a rich source of B vitamins – and has an excellent flavour, enhanced here with a very simple, tangy sauce.

A spectacularly warming and rich guinea fowl casserole. Any guinea fowl can be used for this casserole, though braising works especially well for older guinea fowl. This guinea fowl is braised in red wine, similar to coq au vin.

Tender poached guinea fowl is served in a tangy sauce enriched with lemon and yoghurt. Try serving with steamed savoy cabbage, and plain or mixed rice or baked potatoes.

Roasted guinea fowl is a wonderful alternative to chicken or pheasant. Guinea fowl possesses subtle flavours and is at its best when cooked simply using fresh free-range birds and fresh herbs.
