  • Prepare the polenta with the traditional method then let it cool, cut it into the desired shape.
  • Clean the thrushes well by putting them in a saucepan, pluck them, pass them over a flame to eliminate even the shortest feathers, then remove the entrails; wash them under running water and let them dry.
  • Heat the oil in a pan, add the bay leaf and pink pepper and then add the thrushes, brown on all sides until the meat has browned. Season with salt, add a little hot stock and cook over low heat for 50’, wet the meat from time to time with the stock.
  • Boil the fresh peas in plenty of water for 10’, drain and toss in a pan with a spring onion and basil, season with salt and pepper. Blend them and keep them warm.
  • After leaving the beans to soak for one night, boil them in plenty of water for 30’ and season with oil, salt and pepper.
  • When the thrushes are almost at the end of cooking, cut the slices of bacon into strips, brown it a little in a pan, then add it to the thrushes, blend with the apple cider vinegar.
  • Heat the polenta in a pan with a drizzle of oil. Serve spreading the pea cream on the plate, place the polenta and place the thrushes with their sauce on top.
