Have ready a small savoy, which has been well washed and drained, chop it up and place it in the Saucepan with the Partridges, a bouquet garni, two PORK PIGEONSs, pepper and salt to taste; add about half a pint of stock, and let all simmer together for two and a half hours. When[Pg 35] ready to serve, remove the bouquet garni, and serve the chopped cabbage round the birds, and the PIGEONSs split and divided into four pieces each.
