The "translation" I read was bizarre, I couldn't begin to figure out why someone would have sent a message that nonsensical. I'm with followup guy that that translation is bullshiat.

I've decrypted it. It states;


Ingredients

10 pigeon breasts
1 large onion
1 stick celery
1 small leek
1 carrot
4 tbsp olive oil
120 g chicken livers
200 g pancetta lardons
200 g button mushrooms
200 g small shallots, finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato purée
600 ml game or chicken stock
10 black peppercorns
1 sprig of rosemary
10 sage leaves
a pinch of thyme
500 g shortcrust pastry

Method
1. Cut the pigeon breasts into small pieces. Finely dice the onion, celery, leek and carrot.

2. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat and fry the pigeon, chicken livers and pancetta in olive oil until lightly browned. Put into a pie dish.

3. Add a further tablespoon of the oil to the frying pan and fry the onion, celery, leek and carrot until golden, and then add this to the pie dish. Fry the button mushrooms and shallots in the remaining oil and add to the pie dish.

4. Spoon tomato paste into the pan and cook for 1 minute. Deglaze the pan with the stock. Add the peppercorns, rosemary, sage and thyme to the stock, and bring to the boil.

5. Set the oven to 180°C/gas 4. Pour the stock over the meat in the pie dish.

Rubbish! It's a simple letter-offset substitution code , in reverse and written backwards with word breaks reformatted. Solved and read aloud it opens a portal to Pylea.
