We recently received some products to sample from Wild and Game. We hadn’t come across the company before and the products listed on the website sounded delicious so were keen to give the food a try.
Wild and Game were only established in 2017 with the aim of “introducing more consumers to all types of game meat. A delicious, low-fat alternative source of protein.”
There’s a great range of products available on the website from burgers and sausages to pasties, pâté and ready meals. All using game meat such as pheasant, venison and grouse.
We really enjoyed all the products we sampled, particularly the pheasant and venison sausages. They were really substantial and filling and the difference from most pork sausages we’ve had was that there was no fat or grease at all. Just very tasty meat. Pricing wise compared to our favourite premium pork sausages they are around £1 more expensive for the same weight. For the quality of these sausages that feels like a reasonable price point.
I’m a big pâté fan so was really looking forward to trying out the pheasant, apple & calvados pâté. It was lovely and really versatile. I could have just ate it with a spoon to be honest! Although I had it one some toast to be a bit more civilised. I’ve enjoyed lots of excellent pâté in the past and this was certainly up there. The subtle tang of the apple and calvados gives it quite a unique taste which I really enjoyed.
If you want to try some of the Wild and Game products for yourself you can order online (minimum £25 order) with a £3.99 delivery charge or if you have a big freezer (products are dispatched frozen) any orders of £50 and above include free delivery.
If you need some ideas for how to serve your game products there’s plenty recipes on the website.
You can catch Wild and Game on the National Gamekeepers Organisation stand at Countryfile Live on the 15th – 18th August.
