Enjoy an intensive preparation and cookery experience spread over 2 days with Tina Bricknell-Webb, internationally renowned chef at Percy’s Country Hotel and Restaurant.
Why you should attend
If you’ve ever stood in your kitchen looking at the carcasses of a brace of pheasant, a pigeon, a rabbit or perhaps a deer, thinking the guests are arriving soon and I’ve no idea what to do next.
Then you need to attend Tina’s Game Cookery Workshop where you will be introduced to a modern way of preparing game in a few easy steps.
Tina, Devon’s top female chef and past finalist of ITV’s Chef of the year will teach you how to pluck, skin, butcher and prepare a number of simple and delicious meals. She will share some of her favourite game recipes and after a pleasant days’ cooking will sit down with you for lunch to share the fruits of your labours.
Your guests back home will marvel at your newly-found cooking skills – after all how many hosts have the skills to dish up wild duck or a tender pigeon breast for dinner?
What does the course cover?
- Tips on hanging – humidity, temperature, length of time, bloom etc.
- Demonstrations on plucking, skinning, butchery and preparation of meat for cooking e.g. how to wrap pigeon or woodcock in bacon.
