Great British Game Week returns

The best of the country’s game meat will be celebrated again this year in Great British Game Week (20-27 November). 

Great British Game Week 2016 is being run by BASC’s Taste of Game campaign and the Countryside Alliance’s Game to Eat campaign. The week will feature a range of events, tastings and special offers and businesses can get involved by running special introductory offers.

Jack Knott of Game to Eat said: “It’s a great opportunity for everyone who shoots, sells game or just enjoys eating it, to get involved and celebrate this fantastic British, seasonal produce. I would urge butchers and restaurants to get behind Great British Game week and consider holding their own events and using social media to raise awareness.”

After the success of last year’s event, there will also be Game Food Live, a festival celebrating wild game food at Borough Market.

Annette Cole of Taste of Game said: “The event is open to everyone and is a great celebration of British foods. You could organise an event and help support rural people and businesses, put game on your restaurant menu or just try it for the first time yourself.

“We are delighted to be hosting Game Food Live at the heart of London’s food hub, Borough Market. It is a fantastic start to what will be an incredible week.”
