We asked Beth to share a venison recipe with us and she obliged by adapting this stunningly simple recipe for pan fried venison tenderloin with celeriac and pickled brambles to create a delicious main course or starter.
At the heart of any great food producer is a great mission statement. We asked Beth to share B. on the Road’s values with us and were delighted to find them very similar to our own values, embodying sustainability, ethical high animal welfare, low carbon and of course nutritional value.
We’re looking forward to featuring other guest producers and makers to contribute to our blog in the coming months. Watch this space! Meanwhile, check out our growing recipe database which will inspire you to experiment with our very own Millbank Parkland venison!
