Quail and pumpkin pair well in this Middle Eastern-style dish - they both have a little sweetness, and the gaminess of the quail works well with the earthiness of Kent pumpkin.
Note Barberries, tart dried red berries, are available from select delicatessens and Middle Eastern grocers, and online at pariyafood.com. We used Game Farm quail breast fillets, which are available in 320gm packets of 14 fillets from select supermarkets, butchers and independent grocers. If they're unavailable, substitute 6 whole quail and increase the cooking time by a few minutes to cook the legs.
