Game-themed takeaways, virtual game cookery sessions and places to buy game online: Great British Game Week 23-29 November

As shooters we should all eat what we shoot and encourage others to try game meat.

British Game

Great British Game Week celebrates all that is great about game meat and this year, because of the COVID restrictions, there are many more virtual ways to get involved. Here’s how.

Learn to cook a game curry (with all the ingredients supplied)

The Cook School is holding a Virtual Curry Evening on 26th November. Tickets for the virtual event cost £50.00, for which you will receive a box of ingredients to create a hot & sour mallard duck salad with toasted peanuts & crispy shallots as a starter followed by Thai red pheasant curry, jasmine rice & coconut as main course and finished with chilled kaffir lime leaf rice pudding, poached pear & cardamom for two. Included in the price is a link to a live cooking evening on Zoom to cook your curry along with The Cook School Head Chef Stuart.
