Venison Workshops: Butchery and Outdoor Cooking

Venison Workshops: Butchery and Outdoor Cooking

Join Tinder Sticks for a day learning about deer.
In the morning you will learn about the six species of deer that live in Britain and how to recognise the tracks, trails and signs they leave behind, with a focus on local populations of fallow and muntjac. Understand the impact of deer on the local environment and the need for management strategies.

You will observe a field butchery demonstration before getting hands on and having a go yourself. Elevenses will be venison fillet pan fried with garlic and thyme, straight from the carcass onto your fork. You will learn about the different ways to cook the different cuts of meat before enjoying a meal of venison stew at the end of the day. All meat butchered will be taken away by participants - clear room in your freezer!
