1
For the salt baked celeriac, whisk the egg whites to medium peaks and incorporate the rock salt to form a paste. Chop the Douglas fir needles and add to the mixture
  • 150g of rock salt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 2/3 handfuls of Douglas fir pine needles
2
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Pat the salt mixture around the celeriac, place on a baking tray and bake for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool
  • 1 celeriac
3
For the venison sauce, place a large pan over a medium heat and add a little olive oil. Roughly chop the carrot, celery, onion and garlic and sweat in the pan until lightly caramelized. Pour in the red wine and reduce by half
  • 1 celery stick
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 80ml of red wine
  • olive oil
4
Add the roasted venison bones and top up with chicken stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a gentle simmer for 30 minutes
  • 150g of venison bones
  • 500ml of brown chicken stock
5
Use a large slotted spoon or pair of tongs to remove the bones. Pass the liquid through muslin cloth over a fine strainer to remove all of the solids. Return to a clean pan, bring to a rolling boil and reduce by 3/4
6
Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Place a pan over a medium heat, add the butter, and as soon as it begins to foam, pan-fry the venison steaks until caramelised all over. Season with salt and transfer to the oven for approximately 12 minutes. Remove and allow to rest for 8-10 minutes
  • 4 venison steaks
  • 50g of butter
  • salt
7
Blanch the cavolo nero in boiling salted water for 2 minutes and then plunge into ice cold water. Drain and squeeze out the excess water. Reheat in a hot pan with some butter and season to taste
  • 2 heads of cavolo nero
  • butter
  • salt
  • pepper
8
For the emulsion, place the berries, rosehips, orange juice and sugar in a small pan and set over a medium heat. Cook until tender. Blitz in a blender and pass through a fine strainer - it should have the consistency of a thin syrup and can be left at room temperature until serving
  • 100g of hawthorn berry
  • 200ml of orange juice
  • 50g of caster sugar
  • 100g of rosehips
9
To serve, brush a strip of emulsion across each plate. Place the buttered cavolo nero on each plate, just off centre, and lay slices of venison on top. Cut the salt baked celeriac into cubes and arrange on each plate along with the shallots. Drizzle with the venison sauce and serve
  • 4 shallots
