Case Study: A Taste of Game Student Masterclass
On Wednesday 27th September Simon Gray from the Food Teachers Centre spend a busy but pleasant day preparing locally sourced Pheasant with over 120 year 9 & 10 students at St Luke’s School in Exeter.
The whole purpose of the day was to support students in preparing for their GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition and give them a taste of game. The students were amazing and they learnt new food preparation skills: they portioned a dressed Pheasant and made an amazing Pheasant Breast bruschetta.
Supported by the Taste of Game; who donated all the game birds from a local shoot, the students were able to experience the preparation, cooking, presentation and taste of this classically English treat during the British Food Fortnight.
Joe Mann the new food teacher at St Luke’s school said “I am so proud of the student’s enthusiasm and their willingness to try something new to them. There is a real buzz around the school. We will definitely be cooking more game in the future”
The Food Teachers Centre has joined forces with The Taste of Game to bring produce that the majority of school children would not normally experience to promote the use of sustainable British food in homes across the country.
The Game Changer programme will roll on with both exciting Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops for food teachers and master classes for students in schools across the country, thanks to the generous support of the Taste of Game and local shoots.
