Getting a taste of venison

Visitors to the luxury Scottish store, The House of Bruar, on 5 November, will have a chance to taste wild venison canapés and samples prepared by cookery writer Maxine Clark.

Between 11.30am and 3pm, vension from the Dundee company Highland Game will be on offer.

Claire Goody, assistant marketing manager of Highland Game said: "We are delighted to be appearing at House of Bruar and hope customers will pick up some handy tips from a professional, and take away some different recipe ideas to try at home.

"Many people think venison is just for special occasions and don't appreciate how easy it is to include in their every day meals. Highland Game supply a wide range of convenient cuts including pave steaks, medallions and minced venison, all of which can be cooked quickly and without fussy ingredients in a variety of dishes.

"As well as being packed with natural goodness, bursting with flavour, tender and succulent, wild Scottish venison is high in protein and low in cholesterol, making it an ideal healthy alternative to other traditional meats."
