Inspired by last year’s Great British Game Week The Shotgun Chef has launched a series of pop up field-to-fork cookery schools on the Isle of Lewis.
Students will learn how to forage, hunt and fish for their dinner before being taught how to turn these raw ingredients into delicious dishes. On the menu are tasty treats such as potted rabbit, venison terrine, duck liver pate, smoked goose breast, and game scotch eggs.
You’ll learn everything a first-class game chef needs to know, including essential butchery, plucking, skinning and gutting skills and how to create inspiring recipes with The Shotgun Chef’s expert knowledge of living off the land.
There is even the chance for novices to try their hand at shooting and deer stalking or for the more experienced Shot to enjoy some fantastic sport. You can also master the basics of fly fishing over salmon and trout and take a trip out on the sea boat for mackerel and pollack.
Students will stay in a Colonial-style hunting lodge on a full-board basis and each week is tailored to celebrate what is in season at that time. Courses are limited to a maximum of four people so that you can benefit from the highest-quality tuition possible.
