Guinea Fowl a la Gonzaga

Faraona Mantova Gonzaga


We arrived at the meat courses of the traditional Mantuan cuisine with a recipe that comes directly from the dinner table of the Renaissance lords of Mantua: the Gonzaga.

Take the breast of a guinea fowl and brown in a pan with some lard, add chopped garlic, rosemary and sage,  raisins and moisten with some orange juice. If you wish to be really in the "Renaissance" mood (and it's the right season) you can add  before serving fresh grapes, pomegranate seeds and fresh mint leaves.

I don't have a guinea fowl handy, but will love this with chicken breast. Gorgeous combination and photo.
