Stuck for ideas and looking to hold a dinner party, this menu gives you time relax before your guests arrive as the starter can be made in advance and the main is long slow cooking with nothing last minute apart from some vegetables. As the main is quite rich we have added a light dessert which can be found below.
We recommend the game terrine as a starter which can be found under Mixed Game.
Followed by Chocolate Venison Casserole an fairly easy but impressive main course and can be found under Venison
White Wine and Vanilla Poached Pears
