Foodies in Anglia got a taste of game at an event part-sponsored by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). The Tastes of Anglia Feast East event took place from 4th – 6th March. The event, the regional food festival for the east of England, was held at Chilford Hall, near Linton in South-East Cambridgeshire.
It embraced BASC’s Game’s On campaign to encourage people to enjoy cooking and eating wild game. In a cookery theatre provided by Chefs on Stage, seven chefs including Galton Blackiston of Morston Hall and Anton Edelmann of Anton’s Restaurant, cooked game dishes.
Chefs on Stage will also be providing the cookery theatre at BASC’s Gamekeepers’ Fair on 17th and 18th April 2010 at Catton Park in Derbyshire.
There was also a Foodie Skills area where advice on venison and game preparation was available on two of the days. Robert Gooch of The Wild Meat Company took an overall look at game preparation. Mark Burrage of Bluebell Woods Wild Venison dealt specifically with venison.
