Preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan). Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a casserole dish over a med-high heat. Brown the pheasant for 2-3 mins on each side, once browned set aside on a plate.
Add the leeks and pancetta to the casserole dish and cook on a reduced heat to soften for around 2 mins.
Add the cider and turn up the heat to burn off the alcohol, letting it bubble for around 1 min.
Return the pheasant to the dish, pour in the stock, season and add the thyme, bring back to the boil.
Once boiling, add the casserole lid to the dish and cook in the oven for 40 minutes.
After 15 mins into the cooking time in the oven, put the sweet potato in boiling water and simmer ready for mashing once ready to serve.
Once the pheasant has cooked, remove the lid place the pheasant on a plate and with foil to rest and keep warm.
Put the casserole dish back on a medium-high heat and reduce the sauce by 1/3. Once reduced either add 2 tsp of corn flour or a knob of butter to thicken into a gravy consistency.
Drain the sweet potato add a small knob of butter and mash, serve the leek gravy with carved pheasant and sweet potato mash.
Fold in the butter, pick off the thyme leaves and add, season with salt and pepper. Once the pork has rested, slice into nice thick slices, serve with the mashand a nice pot of good quality whole grain mustard

Transfer the leeks into the veg plan, season well with salt, pepper and the thyme. Tsp dry thyme. So anyway, we ended up with a rotisserie chicken that we hadn't quite planned for, and it did for a few sandwiches but there was meat left that needed using and I thought, what about a nice pot pie
Score the fish skins and place the fillets in an bowl along with the leeks, fennel andpancetta. Place the sea bass skin side down in a large baking tray before arranging the leeks, fennel and bacon around the edges
