New Product – Game Galette
At Petersfield market on the 4th October we will be welcoming back Catch Fabulous Fishcakes with their new Game Galette. Catchhave always been keen to work with game, as fish and game have historically been tradesman bed-fellowes.
They have developed a Game Galette for the game season. As big supporters of shooting conservation and wild food, just like their fish, they are always concerned that the birds are eaten and used responsibly from the sport. To this end, and in fitting with the tradition of fish and game, they have developed a ‘game cake’. As with their fishcakes it is coated in breadcrumbs ready to simply put into the oven. They are made with confit partridge, pheasant and theCatch secret touch which makes them rather yummy!!
Catch hope that the Game Galettes will encourage people that would not normally eat game to give them a try. Working with fellow local game suppliers to deliver a truly local, seasonal and innovative meal option for the autumn and winter game season.
They will be available for the first time at Petersfield & Romsey Farmers’ Markets on Sunday 4th October. Catch look forward to seeing you there.
