CONSUMERS ARE being encouraged to stock up on game meat at home, in celebration of the upcoming ‘Great British Game Week.’

To mark the week commencing November 23 – and in light of recent times, which have seen more people cooking at home – the British Game Alliance is partnering with some of its assured stockists and partners to encourage consumers to try game recipes in their own kitchens.

Head of Operations at the BGA, Louisa North, said, “With so many businesses having to close due to lockdown, we want to use Great British Game Week to support our stockists and encourage people to get involved by eating and cooking game at home. Many of our BGA stockists and processors are providing game boxes via delivery or online cooking events. You can also head to your local supermarkets, such as Sainsburys and Co-op, to buy BGA assured game and support Great Game Week using any of the recipes you can find at our EatWild website,” she urged.

If you are looking for something a little different consumers can register for The Cook School’s Virtual Curry Evening on November 26. A ticket costs £50 for two people, and in return they will receive a box of ingredients to create a hot and sour mallard duck salad as a starter, followed by Thai red pheasant curry, jasmine rice and coconut as main course, helped by a link to a live cooking evening on Zoom so they can cook their curry along with The Cook School's head chef.
