Wild and Game Sausage casserole

Wild and Game aims to bring great British game to a wider audience

To me game meat has always been associated with country living and to some even quite elite living however game meat offers a more dynamic, wide selection of tastes for meat lovers like myself.  When Wild and Game sent me a range of sausages and pies to review I was excited, I have always found game meat to have richer depth of flavour than the usual mainstream meat counterparts like beef, lamb and chicken.

Wild and Game is a not-for-profit food business which aims to turn the UK into a nation of year-round game eaters by taking much-loved recipes and recreating them with game as a key ingredient. Their product range is quite wide and includes pies, sausage rolls, sausages and even raw game meat with more products in development including pheasant lasagne, burgers and pate, and game ready meals. Their products low fat, free range and are supplied frozen so that they can be made available all year round, not just in game season.

“We would love to see game such as pheasant eventually becoming a common sight in UK supermarkets.” – says Steven Frampton, who runs the business with Michael Cannon.  “We’re not doing this for profit, but because we genuinely want to put game more fully  on the nation’s menus. The business grew out of trying to find ways to make game more attractive to people by putting it into products that they already know and love. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to buy and eat game.”

Well it certainly worked for me. The pies and sausages are packed full of flavour and make a great alternative to standard meat products. I really enjoyed the steak and ale pie.

I made a delicious sausage casserole with the pheasant and venison and pheasant and white wine sausages too.

Juicy and flavourful these are excellent sausages! I shall definitely be keeping game meat on my home menu from here on out.

Malagasy cuisine is influenced by the different cultures that make up the population of Madagascar, including French, Indian, Arabic and Sub-Saharan African influences. It is a vibrant melting pot of these influences which is what makes it so exciting and unique in the African food landscape.

Interesting to note that whilst they have Indian influences cuisine is not excessively spice but not unusually for African cuisine it has many meat dishes which meat loves will adore.

Little Baobab

The Senegalese Pop Up with The Best Jollof in London

Khadim Mbamba launched the Little Baobab popup  in 2015, after becoming frustrated with the lack of Senegalese restaurants in London. He decided to combine his love of food with his love of music, giving people an authentic Senegalese experience. The Little Baobab pop-up experience brings people together in a great atmosphere, with delicious Senegalese Soul Food and live music which usually means that their events are often sold out. In 2018 esSense13 hosted a fantastic pop up event with Little Baobab and the hype is justified it was a wonderful event.

One of the most popular dishes is thiebou dieune, a fish and jollof rice combination which is flavour-filled and moreish. It quite possibly puts an end to the debate of who has the best jollof in West Africa!


With the quality of the dish served at Little Baobab one could easily argue that Senegal wins and this video might help to end the debate completely.

Make sure you visit Little Baobab’s to find out details of their next event and taste their food for yourself and see why they probably do serve the best jollof in London.
