Quarantine Cookbook

Self-isolating and want to rustle up something tasty?  Our “Quarantine Cookbook” provides a selection of easy to make recipes from BASC’s Taste of Game.

Whether it be venison, pigeon or pheasant, try something new and have some fun in the kitchen. 

Government guidance has recommended social distancing and self-isolation, but that doesn’t mean you only eat rice and beans. Click the boxes below to read a selection of recipes we have pulled together for BASC’s Quarantine Cookbook. 

Many of us have a good stock of game in the freezer from the shooting season and there are lots of delicious game recipes out there to try. So, defrost that bird, heat up the stove and get creating.

Please remember to defrost meat properly. Read the Food Standards Agency guidance here.

Young Shot recipes

BASC’s Young Shot journalists love to cook! We have a “food corner” dedicated to all their favourite recipes. If you are looking for something to do with the kids, why not rustle up your own game recipe and submit it? We would love to see your ideas! Click here to view the Young Shot food corner.

For some inspiration, read how BASC Young Shot Jack prepared and cooked a rabbit all by himself using one of our game recipes.
