Your chef for the day will be Tim Maddams, who rose to fame as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's Head Chef at the River Cottage.  Tim is passionate about ethically produced, sustainable food and has recently written the River Cottage Handbook on Game Cookery.  There is no better chef to teach you about Game and with Tim's lively manner & in depth knowledge this will be a fun and action packed day.
