All about venison

One of the finest British meats, wild venison is a sustainable, affordable and lean alternative to... beef that also has a distinct character of its own thanks to the rich and varied diet wild deer are free to enjoy. Fruit and berries, grasses, sedges, and the shoots, roots and leaves of trees create a rich, complex meat that evokes our forests and wild places. Venison pairs beautifully with wild ingredients: try it with berry sauces, toasted nuts and earthy foraged mushrooms. The flavour of our venison is robust enough to pair well with strong, spicy flavours, so it’s a beautiful ingredient for curries and other international dishes. Being lean and high in protein, it’s also an excellent choice if you’re watching your weight or building muscle. Take a look at our venison recipes for plenty of imaginative ways to enjoy this prince of British meats.
