Venison cottage pie
If you are trying to eat a little healthier, venison is definitely great to include in your diet as it is lower in fat than beef or lamb. Many people are reluctant to cook with venison, because they are afraid of the “game” flavour, but by adding fresh herbs like thyme and spices like paprika and clove, which have strong characteristics, the “game” flavour is not over bearing at all. However, remember that it is essentially game you are eating, and game will always have a different, slightly heavier flavour than, say, beef.
Have a go at this recipe – I found it really nice and enjoyed the flavour, and I usually don’t like venison dishes.
