Attention all game lovers!

The Great Game Guide 2021, written and produced by The Chefs’ Forum, will launch at on 23rd July at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire.  We’re looking forward to attending and catching up with friends old and new from across the sector.

The new, national version of the guide, edited by Chandos Elletson, contains a list of 100 top game restaurants, pubs and hotels as well as interviews with game-loving chefs and experts. Further sections reveal where to buy game and what happens on a shoot or stalk.

Jon Fisher, Technical Director at Fisher UK was one of the first businesses in the sector to support the publication, he said

“When The Chefs’ Forum approached me to be featured in the guide, I felt that supporting a publication celebrating our producers and chefs creating the demand for game meat was the right thing to do.  I really enjoy working with both parkland and wild game processors, to ensure the end product is of the finest quality possible.  A Fisher UK game larder will ensure that all product is stored and processed in optimum condition, onsite for minimal food miles.  We have been so pleased with the number of chefs wanting to visit our clients’ larders to learn more about game butchery, whole carcass utilisation and the provenance of game meat.”

The printed guide is glove-boxed size and priced at just £5.00, it will serve as your portable guide to the finest chefs, restaurants and retailers specialising in game meat, many of whom will be attending The Game Fair this year!

The Chefs’ Forum will be at The Game Fair this year with a dedicated stand to host events and welcome visitors and sell guide books to anyone wanting purchase a copy.

The Chefs’ Forum demo stage will be in the Totally Game Arena from the 23rd to the 25th July and many chefs included in the guide will join forces with the various game suppliers listed to showcase the finest game butchery and cookery in a series of live demonstrations  over the three day event.

Chef Graham Garrett, from The West House in Kent, is one of the chefs joining in the festivities at The Chefs’ Forum stand and he said:

“We should be eating more game because everyone talks about sustainability, but this is the most healthy meat there is.  Venison is perhaps the healthiest red meat there is. It’ s ethical and sustainable.

“Everyone wants to know where their meat is from and there is nothing more honest and traceable than game meat.  We should be eating wild food, as opposed to intensively farmed meat full of antibiotics and chemicals.”

Chefs’ Forum director Catherine Farinha commented on The Game Fair:

“It’s going to be a great event. We are going to celebrate the countryside, the launch of The Great Game Guide and enjoy being able to see each other in person and have a party. The Great Game Guide has brought so many chefs together for the good of the countryside and we can’t wait to see as many chefs as possible over those three days. 

I’m looking forward to visiting Jon Fisher to make a film about some of the estates and processors he works with – This is really what game enthusiasts want to know about -The people behind the sector making it all possible.”

The Great Game Guide editor Chandos Elletson said:

“What has struck me most about putting this guide together is the strength of feeling not only amongst chefs but also those in the countryside about the game industry. So many chefs have told us how much they love game, look forward to it and enjoy serving it. We all hope that the guide can help new guests find restaurants that celebrate game during the season.”
