Get your wild game on

With more than 28,000 anglers and 18,000 licenced hunters in the Okanagan, there is a large group of the community that loves the outdoors and providing wild game for their families.

However, sometimes there is apprehension in what to do with their catch.

The upcoming BC Interior Sportsman Show plans to help by showcasing a handful of speakers who will teach various methods of preparing wild game.

There will be demonstration sessions from local and celebrity experts, along with presentations on game cooking, sausage making and fish filleting.

One of the Master Chef Canada’s top eight finalists, Agassiz, B.C., resident Tammy Wood, will showcase her talent with cooking wild game. Wood is also a food column writer and host of the Saucy's Got Game Cooking Show airing on Wild TV this year.

"Hunting, fishing and creating amazing wild-game recipes are my passions in life,” said Wood.

Show spectators will also get a chance to learn from Cory Siegner of the Kelowna Fisherman’s Market how to properly fillet a fish.

Siegner started working at Albion Fisheries when he was 17 years old, working there for the next 16 years. Doing everything from early morning filleting to running large scale sales divisions, he made seafood his life.

In 2012, he joined the Fisherman's Market and moved to the Okanagan to open a newly expanded fish market.

If you have ever wanted to learn how to make sausage, the show has also brought in the expertise of West Kelowna chef Ben Pallett, from Kitchen Sync Catering.

Pallett will showcase his fine dining experience and culinary education coupled with his "farm-to-table" mandate. 

The BC Interior Sportsman Show runs April 9-10 at the Capital News Centre in Kelowna.

Speakers, exhibitors, demos and door prizes will be part of the show weekend.
