Results: In sensory analysis, the most favored cooking techniques was frying, baking and scalding, respectively. The effect of cooking techniques on the texture was found to be insignificant while the effect on overall appearance, smell and overall taste of meat was found to be significant (p<0.01). In terms of flavor, only the difference between scalding and frying was found to be significant (p<0.01). As a result, it was determined that all the techniques of frying, scalding and baking to pheasant meat could be applied and positive results would be obtained.

Conclusion: With different cooking techniques, it is concluded that pheasant meat will be appreciated by consumers and this appreciation will contribute to the increase of cooking research in pheasant meats, the presentation of products in different ways and the revitalization of gastronomic tourism.
