Celebrate British Game Week at Greenhills

08 Nov 2018

Game has been eaten in Britain since man first set foot upon our green and pleasant land. Today, its unique flavour makes it an acquired taste, and its a rare treat to find game on restaurant menus.

So what is game? Well put simply, game is wild animals or birds, as opposed to those that are farmed. And because they are wild animals, their meat is lean, healthy and tasty.

British Game Week

 

From the 19th to the 25th of November it's British Game Week, with people encouraged to try game if they haven't before. We're proud to be one of the only establishments in Jersey with a dedicated game menu, so if you're tempted, Greenhills is the place to come! 

Whats on the menu?

Game Grill
The Game Grill is a great place to start if this is your first foray into the delicious world of game. The mixed grill style dish features venison, wild boar, guinea fowl and game sausage. A true feast of game that'll help you find your favourite flavours. 

Pithivier of Wild Boar
Wild Boar has a similar taste to pork hock, and works equally as well in pies, stews and pastries. Our Head Chef Lukasz Piestraz has created a wonderful traditional Pithivier stuffed full of succulent boar, garnished with braised cranberries, red cabbage and glazed baby carrots. 

Roast Loin of Venison
Venison is the most popular British game meat. We accompany our fantastic loin cut with a potato rosti, butternut squash and girolle mushrooms. Venison is extremely lean and needs to be carefully cooked rare to medium rare, something our kitchen team have perfected.  

Pheasant Breast
Pheasant has always been a favourite of British hunters. The breast is delicate and must be carefully prepared in order to retain the distinct flavour that sets it apart from other farmed birds like chicken & turkey. Our pheasant dish features a perfectly cooked breast, topped with pancetta and a delicious bread source.

Feeling hungry?

Our game selection is available on our à la carte menu. Guests are invited to enjoy the à la carte menu in our elegant country restaurant for lunch or dinner every day of the week. 

Bookings are highly recommended. To reserve your table call our restaurant team on +44 (0) 1534 481 042 or email enquiries@greenhillshotel.com
