The Eat Game Awards – a new initiative created by James Purdey & Sons Ltd, Boisdale Restaurants and Taste of Game – welcomed finalists from across the country at a dinner and ceremony, held at Boisdale of Canary Wharf on October 9.

Hosted by Adam Henson, farmer and rural presenter, alongside JB Gill, William Sitwell, Rose Prince and Mark Hix, the awards were presented to the overall winners voted for by the public across nine categories, with the addition of ‘Champion of Champions’ decided by the panel of judges, and ‘Scottish Champion’, awarded to the Scottish finalist with the most overall votes. The full results from the night can be found on the Sporting Shooter website.

Highlights included, Jess Noy (The Game Keepers Daughter), a young Chef from Suffolk who took home the accolade of ‘Best Chef’ against the likes of famous chefs, Richard Corrigan and Tom Aikens. YouTube Star and Butcher, Scott Rea, landed awards for Best Butcher and Game Hero following an overwhelming amount of support. The overall award for Champion of Champions, voted for by the Eat Game Awards panel, was presented to shoot-chef, Tristan Prudden of Constable Burton Estate, for going above and beyond in every area of the promoting of and serving of game.

The Awards reflect and encourage the ever-growing use of wild game, highlighting the champions of British game and rewarding their success, innovation and passion in working with this natural countryside product. The nominated charity that the Awards will be supporting is The Country Food Trust, whose aim is to feed those in need with game meat casseroles packaged in ready-to-eat long-life pouches.

James Horne of Purdey: “We were particularly keen to raise the profile of the thousands of small to medium sized businesses that use game in their products. The sheer number of nominations and then the enormous local coverage so many businesses have received has been fantastic to see. This publicity is the oxygen that so many small businesses need in order to grow.” Find out more at the Eat Game Awards website.
