Join us in our woodland kitchen for a day spent learning how to butcher and cook a selection of seasonal British wild game. Learn how to pluck, draw and butcher feathered wild game such as pigeons, pheasants or duck or skin and joint small game like rabbits and squirrels. You will be surrounded by the crackle and pop of fires as you graze your way through the day with a feast over fire cooked by yourselves in a relaxed and informative environment.

Our food-filled adventure starts with a foraging walk up to our woodland glen, gathering a selection of wild ingredients on our way. We will give you tips on how to identify seasonal hedgerow edibles, highlighting the tasty morsels that nature’s larder has to offer. 

 

After a restorative cuppa in our woodland kitchen, we will then turn our attention to the main business of the day; skinning and butchering our seasonal game. Using the whole animal from nose to tail and showing you how to reduce waste getting the most from the animal, we will talk through multiple ways of preparing each cut, stocks and sauces and the best ways to store your meat. Whilst all this is happening our team will cook up delicious snacks over fire to quell your hunger before we spend our afternoon cooking up a feast over fire.

 

Fires crackling and curiosity sparked, we will then introduce you to a medley of different cooking methods, using your new skills to create a magnificent lunchtime feast. And what better place to lunch than under our woodland canopy, surrounded by the snap, crackle and pop of the fires? 

 

Keen to pass on methods that are safe for the environment and for yourselves, we will give you tips on how to sustainably source your firewood and also advise you on how to practice your new skills as safely as possible.

 

Expect to head home smelling of wood smoke, with plenty of food and fire in your bellies. We’ll send you an email recipe pack so that you can get started at home straight away.
