Sweat garlic, shallot, bay leaf and thyme in butter, then deglaze with Madeira. Add vegetables to the demi-glace, reduce, add cream and foie gras. Reduce to coating consistency, then blend and season with black truffle oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

Slow Roasted Pheasant
• 6 ounces pheasant
• Salt and pepper to taste
• Braised red cabbage and chestnuts (recipe not included here)
• Pecan Crusted Asparagus (recipe above)

Pan sear pheasant then finish in oven set to 275 degrees.
