How to prepare the guinea fowl cacciatore recipe

  1. First, check that the guinea fowl is thoroughly clean and, if necessary, flame the feathers on the stove. Then rinse it under running water and dry it with kitchen paper before reducing it to pieces.
  2. Finely chop the onion, garlic, rosemary and sage and brown them in a pan with the oil. Then add the diced bacon and let everything go for a few more minutes.
  3. Add the meat and, after browning it on all sides, deglaze with the white wine.
  4. When you no longer feel the smell of alcohol rising from the fumes of the pan, add the tomato pulp, a pinch of salt and start cooking the meat which will last for 1 hour and a half.
  5. Stir from time to time and, if the sauce dries too much, adjust the consistency with hot water or broth. Just 10 minutes before the end of cooking, add the Taggiasca olives. Serve hot.
