At Vale House Kitchen we have a field to fork ethos. This is why we think it’s very important that if you are going to eat something you really should be connected with the whole process that has put that food on your plate. None of our courses exhibit this more than our Shooting Experience. The first day of this course gives people the opportunity to learn all about game shooting and the chance to shoot a pheasant and other wild game birds. On the second day Tim Maddams gives a game butchery and cookery masterclass which concludes in our guests preparing and eating the bird that they have shot. By taking a slightly modern approach to cooking game, we hope it will give you the confidence to put game back on the menu in your own kitchen. Our first course of the new shooting season is this weekend and we really can’t wait. We look forward to welcoming some of you here at Vale House Kitchen later in the season.
Its been a very exciting few months here at Vale House Kitchen. In September we hosted our first big Corporate Day with a group of 50 lawyers from Shell coming to enjoy a day in the fabulous Somerset countryside. We wanted to show them everything that we had to offer so had groups shooting, fly fishing, trying their hand at butchery and chef skills along with cake decoration as well. The day was a tremendous success helped by the glorious late summer weather which meant that everyone could get the most out of our fantastic location. Lunch was even enjoyed on the lawn, something you really don’t expect in late September! The fly fishers managed 6 fish throughout the day, some of which were sashimied by Tim and Kieran for lunch, the rest smoked and taken back to the hotel. And Sandra had the cake decorators conjuring up all sorts of interesting cup cake inventions, with our guests unleashing designs that wouldn’t have been out of place on an episode of GBBO! If you are thinking of hosting a Corporate Day in the West Country please get in touch and we will make sure that you have a very enjoyable and unique experience.
