It was ‘game on’ this week for Heart of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) Level 2 Hospitality and Catering students, as they received a demonstration from a specialist Wild Game Chef.

During the demonstration the students were shown how to, and got involved, with skinning and butchering a Muntjac Deer, as well as pigeons and pheasants. The students also got the chance to cook and taste the venison.

Talking about the visit, Hospitality and Catering Lecturer, Matthew Perry said:

“Demonstrations like this are a great opportunity for the students to gain a greater experience and knowledge with fresh local British produce.”

This experience allowed the students to get a better understanding of wild meat and its seasonality and health benefits. The Chef also discussed with the students how wild game has increasing popularity on restaurant menus.

HoW College is proud to provide its students with visits such as these to develop their skills and knowledge.
