Game is wild, natural and free range and if you are looking for something low in fat, game is a delicious and healthy alternative to many other meats.
Cooking With Game
Gone are the days when pheasants and venison were kept for special dinner parties. Whatever the occasion you’ll find a great Game-to-eat recipe on this site! Whether you’re cooking for a mid week supper, a dinner party or a quiet night in with someone special, tap into our fantastic array of recipes and impress!
The classic way of cooking game birds is to roast them and serve with Game chips. You can also dice venison and cook it on a rotisserie kebab. But with the availability of handy, ready to cook portions they are just as good in casseroles, pies, pates, soups and sausages. Try cubed venison for a healthy yet hearty casserole or minced venison for a burger with a difference. Low fat venison sausages make a convenient and great tasting mid week meal (the children will love them) and for a curry with a twist, look out for Tandoori Pheasant. The choice is endless.
Using Your Rotisserie
From Rotigrill’s perspective, rotisserie cooking, as always, retains the meats’ juices. Therefore, combining one of the oldest methods of cooking with traditional, wild game is just so natural. Take a look at the Rotigrill XL3, which is ideal for cooking game. In the coming months we will be adding more game recipes to our website

Why Eat Game?
Results from research commissioned by the Game-to-Eat campaign*, suggest that there are real health benefits to eating game. Venison is high in protein, low in saturated fatty acids and contains higher levels of iron than any other red meat. Pheasant and partridge also contain a high level of iron, protein, vitamin B(6) and selenium, which helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Game has a distinctive flavour making it a great alternative to beef, pork, lamb and chicken. As it is low in cholesterol and high in protein Game is one of the healthiest meats available today. For example, venison, with its brilliant taste and extra lean meat, is perfect for anyone on a low fat diet.
In terms of taste, people who are used to mass produced, watery meat will find the taste of game stronger than normal. But the taste of game is how it used to be and should be. Eating is about enjoying flavours and not just for providing fuel for the body. Pheasant, partridge and venison are rich in flavor, so portion control is so much easier as you don’t need to eat great quantities in order to be satisfied.
If you haven’t tried wild game before, it’s worth the effort.
