Dartmoor - Private chef
Luscombe Venison, Being Private chefs at Luscombe Castle has many advantages. One of which, Luscombe Venison. There are wild Venison roaming the estate and occasionally we get a call from the game keeper with a gift.
This is Venison leg steak, red onions, balsamic, dill and wine berry jelly.
Wild garlic and walnut pesto recipe.
There’s such an abundance of wild garlic at the moment. I can smell it as soon as I walk out of my front door. I love garnishing dishes with the tiny white flowers that pack a garlicky punch and Sam and I try to make as much garlic butter as we can and store it in the freezer for the coming months.
Another favourite recipe of mine is wild garlic pesto, it’s super easy and can be used on your pasta, to dress salad. on top of a curry, finish off a roast lamb dish, anything that tickles your fancy really. You cant go to wrong with a bit of delicious garlic in your dish of choice… ok maybe not with your chocolate cake but who am I to judge?
It has been a bit of a bonkers winter here on the south coast, we had roses blooming in December with balmy temperatures that almost felt like we weren't going to get a winter, then January arrived and suddenly I couldn't keep the house warm...
I think Lasagne maybe the best dish in the world! I don't know anyone that doesn't love it, or maybe I don't socialise with haters...
