POTTED GAME ON THE HAIRY BIKERS
On Easter Monday the new series of The Hairy Bikers, celebarating the best of British food, kicked off with an homage to our native game birds. We were featured in this episode creating a new woodpigeon recipie and then testing it on the public at our local farmers market in Stroud.

We are proud to announce that our Potted Trout, Potted Grouse and Potted Wild Boar have all been awarded 3 Gold Stars at this year's Great Taste Awards, while our Potted Partridge has struck a gold star too.
Potted Game is now available in the foodhalls of Selfridges Oxford Street and Fortnum and Mason and The House of Bruar.
Meanwhile our Potted Wild Boar with Smoked Ham Hock and Sherry has been rated amongst the top 50 food products in Britain.
Potted-Game. Fur, feathers and scales. Wild animals.
We have cooked in Swiss chalets, French chateaux, Mayfair mansions and Scottish castles, and what have we learned is game is seriously underrated and – to the uninitiated – it can be a little intimidating, too.
We have seized on the growing availability of game and combined it with over 25 years of top-flight cooking experience to come up with our first range of products. We hope you will find our little pots delicious, of course, but we also hope that we can do our part by putting native British game back on the table.
But, in order to spare you the trouble of picking and plucking, seasoning and skinning, broiling and carving, we decided to do all the hard work by potting a wide range of unusual fish, and meats – making an easy-to-eat and original starter or snack.
It is a contemporary twist on an age-old idea. Potting - preserving in butter - is experiencing a renaissance in British kitchens. Not only does the butter preserve the meat but it also seals in the flavours and provides a rich, silky finish.
Our seasonally sourced game can be served on any warm crusty bread, melba toast or just straight toast to make the ultimate snack, sophisticated starter or why not try on biscuits as nibbles with pre-dinner drinks. We also like them in baked potatoes or through pasta with some fresh herbs thrown in for good measure.
We think that our recipes are original without being quirky, and refined without being pretentious:
Each 65g serving comes in its individual pot, so all you will need to do is find a plate, a knife, a piece of toast and perhaps a slice of lemon and enjoy (the one in that G&T you’re drinking will do).
