Gamebird Food Festival

This season, you’re invited to have your game birds prepared by a professional chef at our local restaurants Tuki Kitchen and Ten Twenty Four, so you can take the enjoyment of eating your harvested birds to another level with the 2012 Gamebird Food Festival.

Get together with a group of hunting mates, treat your long suffering ‘duck widow’ to a special night out, or introduce non-hunters to the gourmet delights of game bird dishes.

This year the festival is not just about fine dining, we’re spreading the word about how good game birds are as a natural, tasty food source through a nationwide series of game bird preparation and cooking demonstrations.  Check back soon for some exciting announcements!

The festival runs for nine weeks from May 5 through to July 8 2012, and it’s easy to get involved.

Simply book into one of our local restaurants below, book your table and drop your game birds into the chef at least 24 hours before you dine. Then, just sit back and enjoy a gourmet meal of your harvest!
