The most widely consumed types of game are:
Venison: this meat is used for cold meats, as well as eaten fresh or frozen. Deer is a highly valued species, whose meat is often used in stews.
Wild boar: this meat is used in the preparation of cold meats and all the parts of the animal are used, particularly the head and thighs.
Rabbit: this is a light meat, with a low fat content and rich in protein, vitamin B and minerals (iron, zinc and magnesium). It is easily digested and flavourful, and can be used in a wide variety of dishes.
Pheasant: this species of game has a reputation for adorning the most select tables, with its juicy, nutritional flesh.
Partridge: this meat provides large amounts of vitamin B6, vitamin B3, protein, iron, selenium, cholesterol and water.
Quail: with fine, flavourful and delicate flesh, this meat has few calories and is rich in protein.
Some of the oldest dishes from culinary traditions around the world feature recipes with game. This type of meat features a darker colour flesh than farm-raised meat, has a more intense flavour and a firmer, more fibrous texture. It is low in fat, with a high protein content and biological value, rich in iron, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium.
