  • There’s no need to hang grouse, as it already has the perfect game flavour
  • The further into the season you get, the gamier the birds will be
  • For older grouse slow pot roasts and casseroles work best

  • With young grouse, take the breast off, season and sear in a hot pan for 2 minutes per side
  • Always rest your grouse for at least half of the cooking time, this lets the meat relax and allows the juices to go back into the centre
  • Use a deboning knife to remove the breast from the carcass, always ensure knives are sharp
  • Use the carcass to make a great stock base for your jus – simmer for three hours for the perfect flavour
  • There are 18 species of grouse in the world
  • The best accompaniments for grouse are: game chips, bread sauce, fried crumbs, rowan jelly, bleaberrie compote and Scottish skirlie.
  • Grouse is incredibly good for you as it is organic, low in fat and cholesterol
