BASC and Highland Game colleges cookery competition

New for the 2021/22 British game season is a cooking competition which will see budding young chefs devising their original own canapes using venison mince. All will be bidding to win some fantastic prizes, including an exclusive stalking trip in the Scottish Highlands.

BASC is appealing to college students to create a canape that can be served at a prestigious BASC event for 250 guests in early 2022. We will be judging the entries on creativity, recipe clarity, presentation and suitability for the event. The top three entries will be invited along to cook the dish for an expert panel of judges in early 2022 where a winner will be crowned.

The winner will attend the event and serve their canape as well as enjoying a special trip to the Scottish Highlands to stalk deer with a professional and serve their canape to the team after a tour of the facilities. The runners up will receive a selection of delicious venison from our sponsors Highland Game.

Highland Game will also be kindly supplying the meat to all colleges taking part.
