Celebrate the Best of British Game During National Curry Week

National Curry Week is 5th – 11th October 2020

To celebrate National Curry Week (5th – 11th October 2020), the British Game Alliance is delighted to announce a new virtual game curry-cooking event. Numbers will be limited, so the BGA is also marking National Curry Week with brand new game curry recipes from TV Chef, The Urban Rajah. 


The Cook School Scotland, sister company of Scottish-based BGA registered processor, Braehead Foods, launched a series of new ‘Cook School @ Home’ online events during lockdown. This curry evening is to be their first game cooking event and has been planned to coincide with Great British Game Week at the end of November. 


Tickets for the virtual event cost £50.00, for which you will receive a box of ingredients to create a hot & sour mallard duck salad with toasted peanuts & crispy shallots as a starter followed by thai red pheasant curry, jasmine rice & coconut as main course and finished with chilled kaffir lime leaf rice pudding, poached pear & cardamom for two. Included in the price is a link to a live cooking evening on Zoom, which takes place on 26th November, to cook your curry led by The Cook School Head Chef Stuart. You will also receive an Eat Wild game recipe booklet as an added extra. Tickets are limited to 20 households, go on sale during National Curry Week through The Cook School website.


During National Curry Week the BGA is also releasing a new video collaboration with TV Chef Ivor Peters, known as The Urban Rajah. In a new recipe video showcased on the @britishgamealliance and @letseatwild social media channels, The Urban Rajah shows you how to cook a Pheasant Makhni curry from scratch. 


Louisa North, Head of Operations at the BGA said,

“National Curry Week is the perfect time to display the great aromatic and spicy flavours that compliment game meat so well. We are delighted to support our BGA registered processor Braehead Foods with their fantastic curry-themed home cooking event and if you would just like to learn how to cook a game curry this week, we have also partnered with The Urban Rajah to show you how!”


Stuart Leslie, Head Chef at The Cook School Scotland said,

“We were inspired by the nation’s passion for cooking during lockdown and wanted to introduce a format where we could still engage with our customers whilst adhering to all social distancing measures. Braehead Foods was founded on Game and is very close to our hearts. We are very excited to showcase game with a twist on traditional cooking methods and highlight how versatile it is and how well it works with Asian inspired flavours.”
