British Game Month

british game monthThroughout the month of November the Countryside Alliance’s Game-to-Eat promotion campaign is running the first ever “Go Wild with British Game” month. The dedicated month will see over 50 official events take place across the country.

Many butchers, pubs and restaurants are actively promoting game during British Game Month with special game feasts and menus, cookery classes, demonstrations, tastings and distributions of our recipe leaflets. Game is more readily available than ever before from butchers, and Marks & Spencer is also backing the month by launching a range of game, broadening game’s audience yet further.

Michelin-starred Chef Tom Kitchin has told the campaign that

“Cooking game is an art and although mastering all of the techniques, procedures and skills required is challenging, it is so incredibly rewarding.”

Game-to-Eat is busy on other fronts too, running game workshops for students at catering colleges across the country. Game-to-Eat’s Consultant Chef Lee Maycock is running “fur and feather” workshops to introduce the Chefs of tomorrow to cooking with game. Lee is also heading up a judging panel to find the Game-to-Eat College Chef of the Year 2013 in association with the Craft Guild of Chefs. Year 2 and 3 catering students are invited to participate in this competition, which will yield £500 of equipment vouchers along with a week’s work experience at a top restaurant to the student who creates an original recipe using partridge or pheasant and sends us photographs of their dish.

Sir Barney White-Spunner, Executive Chairman of the Countryside Alliance said:

“By communicating game’s benefits to trade and the general public alike we are promoting a great British product and supporting our shooting industry. I hope you will join us in celebrating game this month”
