Product information



Try it with pesto spiked mash and roast veg, or visit our website for more inspiration and how to videos.


We might be the remarkable duck people but there's room in our hearts and on our plates for other poultry too. Our poussins, from our friends the Leon family in Britanny, are a breed that's naturally slow-growing, so you get meat that's young and tender yet thoroughly flavourful.
Poussin is surprisingly easy to cook, considering how good it tastes.
