Students across the UK were asked to create a recipe and make a unique dish that uses any game meat. More than 80 took part and developed their own game recipes as part of the School Game Changer project.

Here are a selection of their recipes:

Duck breast in raspberry and orange sauce

I decided to focus on using local produce in my recipe. I got all the products from a local greengrocer who sources fruit and vegetables from the local area.
I wanted to create a simple but also modern dish. The sweet potato has become a popular alternative to the white potato.


Pigeon samosas and mango chutney

I decided to use wood pigeon for my samosas because it’s a dark meat and very lean so it was ideal to use in crispy filo pastry as the pastry wouldn’t go soggy. I shot the pigeon with my dad on a cold night’s roost shooting in Leicestershire. Therefore, my pigeon was a locally sourced ingredient.


Three ways rabbit with crispy potatoes

My inspiration for this dish was local produce. I live in the hills and rabbit is a sustainable, good quality and cheap meat. The rabbits we get are ferreted by a local farmer, skinned then dropped at our door.


Pheasant with pearl barley

I wanted to make a pheasant dish with a twist by serving it with pearl barley. I made a beetroot purée flavoured with lemon and orange zest and a touch of garlic, which added colour to the plate. I want to be a chef and love experimenting and creating my own recipes.
