Prepare for Great British Game Week

Recipes to help you celebrate Great British Game Week … Perfect for the festive season too!

Great British Game Week is a celebration of wild game, promoted by British Game Assurance’s Eat Wild campaign in partnership with BASC’s Eat Game initiative.

Game meat is delicious, healthy and wonderfully British, to be celebrated and seen more on menus and on our dining tables. To encourage customers to either try Game meat for the first time, or to include it in their weekly menus more often, is to offer them new and exciting ways to eat it. We love developing new ideas and recipes to help Game meat shine through and be the hero.

Browse our recipe ideas below and hopefully they will inspire you to create some new display ideas and customer meal solutions that celebrate the versatility and flavour of British Game. And whilst Christmas is only weeks away why not include one or two as your festive offerings over the Christmas & New Year period?
