Pheasant and Cider



We invite you to join us for a day of Pheasant and Cider. Quintessential seasonal produce from the Devon countryside. You will learn several techniques and recipes to make best use of pheasant during the shooting season. It is a fabulous and cost-effective source of wild protein and we hate waste so want to give you as many ideas as possible. We will also make Scrumpy, traditional wild fermented cider and share tasters, of course!

Our learning style is very relaxed and informal. You are our guests. We want you to join us to have fun, learn something new and produce something to take home and share. Our preferred method of teaching is to demonstrate and then assist you to practice that task with as much or as little support as you require.

On this course you will learn how to make your own Scrumpy, prepare and cook pheasant, discuss flavour pairings for pheasant and cook and taste recipes using different techniques and flavours.
