Here at Taste of Game we are passionate about game meat. Game meat is wild and natural, part of our countryside harvest. It is part of our heritage but is also a vibrant and a modern addition to today’s lifestyles and food choices.
We encourage the consumer to eat game through great recipes, special offers and delicious game products. Taste of Game informs people about local and natural produce that has been harvested or hunted, encouraging the sustainable, best practice use of a natural food.
If you are looking for somewhere to buy game please go to our ‘Buy Game’ page where you will find suppliers nationwide who offer products from fresh game meat to pies, charcuterie and sausages.
Just looking for that little pub or restaurant who has game on the menu? Then take a look at the restaurant page. We have some great restaurants and hotels who would be delighted to see you.

So what is so special about game meat?
It is healthy, local, natural and delicious. Game meat is low in fat with a high content of polyunsaturates, so don’t over cook it otherwise it will dry out. It is full of vitamins including Iron B6, Niacin and Riboflavin. Nutritionally it is akin to skinless chicken breast meat. Venison is a tasty and healthy alternative to beef.
Game can be brought locally but always check with your local butcher you will be surprised how much game they will stock.
Game lives on natural habitat, roaming free, enjoying life. In the game larder you will find pheasant, partridge, grouse, duck, rabbit, pigeon and venison.
And it is delicious so if you have never tried it, you must, you will love it.
Taste of Game is supported by BASC with sourcing game meat and the great conservation work which produces sustainable quality game meat.
If you would like to ask any questions or send us some of your great game recipes, we would love to see them.
