For those real meat eaters out there, game is the perfect food. Hung for several weeks to allow the meat’s flavour to truly develop over time, game has a unique, rich taste that makes a wonderful Sunday lunch.

Game is the name given to wild animals hunted for sport or food and is a phrase first coined in the late thirteenth century. Small game includes rabbits, pheasants, geese or ducks, while large game includes deer, elk and bear. Because game comes from wild animals used to foraging, it tends to be richer in flavour and leaner than meat from domesticated animals such as cows and chickens.

Game is hung for several weeks after it is hunted to allow the rich flavour to intensify and the meat to tenderise. Any game supplier or game butcher will be able to advise you on the time suited to each type of animal to guarantee you enjoy the seasons with a hearty meal.
