My sweetheart and I substituted cranberries for juniper berries, and chicken liver for pheasant liver, otherwise to the tee. We were dubious about the instruction to simply begin by baking the pheasant, sans any garnish or flavour, however we followed the recipe to the tee and the bird was wonderfully tender, even the breast, and the sauce provided a complex, though wonderfully balanced of flavour. Highly recommend this recipe
