Cooking with Game

You will learn about the world of hunting and its relationship with cooking, starting with getting to know the animals themselves and their environmental value

A course to break the myths and introduce yourself to the world of game

In this course we will take a trip to the countryside through the kitchen – connected with memories, respect for the product, traditionalism and technique. We will learn about the different animals and types of meat and their main characteristics and their relationship with nature. We will discover many ways of maintaining the balance of flavors typical of each type of meat, whilst creating fresh ideas.

Protein will be the star feature. We will show you how to achieve optimal cooking, intense flavor, desired texture and juiciness when working with game.

At the end of the course, the student will master the technical and theoretical basics, and then be able to get the most out of meat, fat and bones according to each type of preparation.

What you'll learn

Learn the tips and techniques for cooking game meat and prepare amazing recipes

Before delving into the recipes, we will observe the theoretical and practical aspects when it comes to cooking game.

We review good practices: minimum sizes and weights, hunting seasons, determination of quality, etc. Then you will learn about the skinning, butchering, boning, cleaning and trussing of different birds and animals such as partridges, pigeons, free-roaming birds and deer. Also the conservation aspects.

There will be examples of slow and long cooking, as well as tenderizing and marinating methods. The idea is to replicate traditional dishes in order to be able to create recipes with local and seasonal ingredients.
