Add a touch of game this Christmas

by | Dec 16, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Christmas has s many different meanings to people, but one common thread that holds strong is the chance to rejoice in some festive cheer with loved ones and usually over some heart-warming Christmas foodie delights.

Most of us spend time carefully planning our Christmas festive meals, some opting for those traditional dishes, while some take it as an opportunity to try something new. This year we encourage you to include game in your meals this Christmas, for reasons which I will explain below.

Not only is game a wild and highly nutritious meat but there are many ways in which it can be enjoyed. So, you will be eating something that is not only healthy and good for you, but you’ll be supporting rural businesses and communities by buying/eating game this Christmas. Plus, you’ll impress your party guests with something new for them to try!

We have brought you four recipes we would recommend trying this Christmas from Eat Game. If these aren’t for you, there are many more for you to browse through.

For the starter or nibbles…

Partridge and wild mushroom terrine


Partridge makes a perfect portion as a main course, but like most game, it works very well in a terrine too. The controlled cooking and the addition of some good fatty streaky bacon keep the terrine succulent, and a mixture of mushrooms adds another flavour dimension.
