Sick of just eating plain meat? Looking for a unique way to enjoy some pastured guinea?
One of our favorite ways to eat guinea fowl is cooked in a terrine.
What the heck is a terrine?
A terrine is traditional in French cuisine and is a meat, fish or veggie mixture that has been cooked in advance and allowed to cool or set in the container. It is cooked and served in a loaf pan, so it's kind of like a meat bread!
Terrine is similar to pate in the sense that it is served cool, but it doesn’t necessarily contain liver and uses a lot more ingredients to give it a unique texture profile. Terrines seem sophisticated, but we are not sophisticated chefs. We wanted to make this a super easy recipe to enjoy a unique and fun recipe.
If a chicken and a duck had a baby…
Have you tried guinea fowl? The taste is similar to wild game, but more delicate, not as strong. We think it tastes like a mix between chicken and duck.
Nutrient-wise, guinea meat is high in Vitamin K, niacin and Vitamin B1.
Guineas roam more than any other poultry species, so they are slightly leaner than chicken… making the cooking method pretty important.
Bone broth provides an abundance of vitamins and minerals. Plus ‘wiggly jiggly’ bone broth is a great source of collagen. You can learn about the benefits of bone broth in our recent article on White Oak Pastures' blog. But, not all bone broths are equal. The items you use to make your bone broth (from the source of the bones to the other ‘off-cuts’ added) will make a difference in the nutrient composition and amount of ‘jiggle’ that results. Below you’ll find our favorite recipe for creating the ultimate, great-tasting, nutrient-dense, “wiggly jiggly” bone broth.
Need an appetizer that's perfect for a casual party, or The Big Game? Buffalo Chicken Dip combines hot wing flavor with a rich and creamy dip. Made with White Oak Pastures boneless, skinless pasture-raised chicken breasts, this dip is easy to make and seriously delicious.
A warning, from our personal experience: although this dip is easy to make ahead of time, it takes some serious self control to not eat it all... before the game even starts!
