Quantity Ingredient
1 guinea fowl, giblets removed
rapeseed oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 dried habanero chilli, finely chopped
1 guajillo or ancho chilli, finely chopped

For the guinea fowl with guinea fowl tea

Quantity Ingredient
1 carrot, finely diced
1 onion, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
200ml chicken stock
1 bay leaf
1 sprig thyme
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
120ml red wine

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
8 Corn tortillas
1 avocado, finely sliced
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 lime, quartered


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  2. Rub the guinea fowl with some oil, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, cumin and the dried chillies. Place in a roasting tray and cook in the oven for 1 hour. When it’s cooked (when the juices from the thigh run clear when pierced with a skewer), remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Warm the tortillas in a dry frying pan and add a carved slice of guinea fowl per tortilla. Top with the avocado, a dusting of chipotle powder and a squeeze of lime juice.

Optional: guinea fowl with guinea fowl tea

  • Once the guinea fowl is not too hot to touch, pull all the meat off the carcass and set aside. Put the carcass into a stockpot and brown with some oil for 5 minutes. Add the carrot, onion and celery and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the stock, bay leaf, thyme and peppercorns and cook on a medium heat until reduced by half, for about 20 minutes. Add the red wine and carry on reducing until you have a velvety sauce. Strain the sauce through a fine mesh sieve into another pan and set aside.

    When you’re ready to serve, place the guinea fowl meat in a saucepan and add a tablespoon of the sauce. Heat for 3 minutes, then set aside.

    Pour a small amount of the reduced sauce into a shot glass or egg cup and serve as a beverage to accompany the taco. Then follow step 3 (above).
