"...a day I will always remember."
As the 2014 grouse season closes on the 10th December, the value of grouse shooting and the benefit it brings for the economy and the environment are highlighted in an infographic being sent to MPs by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) and the Moorland Association.
More than 70 MPs were among 100 guests at a game and wine tasting session held at Westminster. They were served with a selection of game canapés including carpaccio of venison, wild hot-smoked mallard and roulade of potted pheasant with Parma ham. The canapés were prepared under the direction of Jose Souto, chef-lecturer at Westminster College.
