Welcome to Let’s Eat Marbella

  THE GLORIOUS TWELFTH

In the early 80’s I was doing a consultancy job for an hotel in Braemar in Scotland. A beautiful part of the world and a chance for me to see the iconic Highland Games attended by the Queen and Prince Philip as well as other members of the Royal Family. But, due to the generosity of my client, had the rare opportunity to be involved in the Glorious Twelfth — the start of the Red Grouse hunting season. Visitors from abroad and aristocracy of the United Kingdom, pay fortunes to have the pleasure of hunting these amazing game birds that can fly at around 70 m.p.h in, at times, a zigzagging motion. Much like Beaujolais Nouveau in November, hotels vie to be the first to serve the delicacy on their evening menu. Even in those days the hotel owner charged £1000 per gun per day. Nowadays the ‘gun’ charge is much more expensive, running into thousands, with owners charging £150 a brace on top. (see more below)
