This year the Great British Menu marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The chefs created dishes that evoke the wartime spirit of the generation as well as honour the bravery shown throughout the Second World War.
South West Chef Emily Watkins was picked to cook the fish course at the banquet but her main course “Don’t Come Back Empty Handed” a rabbit dish, attracted a lot of attention and praise.
Well, what a year is has been for game fairs! From last years cancelled events due to the rain, to the heat of this year, but at least it was dry! For me, the CLA Gamefair at Ragley Hall, Warwickshire was a huge success, demonstrating summer game dishes, as most of us who shoot have freezers brimming with game.
