Describe the Eat Game Awards in 3 words.
Innovative, tasty, fabulous.
Was there a particular moment or fact that spurred you to promote the consumption of game meat?
It has always struck me how many country sportsmen don’t regularly eat game, despite it being the goal of their sport & the sheer quantity of amazing recipes available. Highlighting the innovative nature of these creations by rewarding people involved with them seemed an obvious thing to do.
A selection of game dishes, including gamekeeper’s pie, venison loin and partridge casserole
What has been your proudest moment for Eat Game Awards so far?
The breadth and number of responses. It has been pleasantly staggering.
Which award category are you particularly excited about and why?
‘Game Hero’. I’m absolutely fascinated to see who will gain the title.
What is your favourite game dish?
A grouse, pheasant and partridge casserole made by my wife. Such amazing flavours!
Where is your favourite place to eat game – both in the country & city?
Eating game on the same shoot day is always a joy. Last season we even had partridge on a BBQ that had been shot in the morning.
If you could save one photo in your house, what would it be and why?
I have several paintings from Alastair Makinson including one commissioned last year for my birthday by my son Chris – it is of us shooting in adjoining grouse butts. Having started GunsOnPegs together this is so very special.
