In light of the annual #GreatBritishGameWeek, 7th-13th November 2022, restaurants across the UK are putting game on the menu to celebrate and introduce more people to its healthiness, sustainability, and versatility.
Great British Game Week is a celebration of enjoying wild game, promoted by British Game Assurance’s (BGA) Eat Wild campaign.
The week-long promotion will be a focus for events, dinners and special offers promoting game to consumers around the country. People will be encouraged to taste game for the first time and try new game products such as pies, sausages, burgers, and charcuterie.
William Sitwell, Restaurant Critic, Broadcaster, and Author, said: “Cooking with and eating game isn’t just a sensible, sustainable and natural way of life, it’s a delicious, exciting approach to food with endless and wonderful possibilities. I wish more of us could understand and share this great source of nutrition and pleasure, so I’m delighted that BGA are championing game with the help of Eat Wild; they are the invaluable go-to people for stockists and fabulous ideas.”
William Sitwell will be hosting the Game Week finale ‘Glorious Game’ event at BGA stockist Holland & Holland’s Shooting Grounds on 12th November. The event includes a twelve-course tasting menu with wine pairing. BGA Ambassador Chef Leon Challis-Davies will join Holland & Holland Head Chef, Joshua Hunter, Michelin-starred Mark Kempson and Celebrity Chef Valentine Warner to produce an exquisite tasting banquet, with all game at the event being BGA Assured.
