Roe fillet or venison saddle in this recipe is seared and served with parsley roots, chanterelles, black walnuts and aromatic pears. There is a potato and celery puree, a sauce of game stock and a béchamel sauce. A perfect plate!

Roe fillet with black nuts

Our forester brought us meat from the fawn. And we finally wanted to try the black walnuts. A product that we did not even know before. I took notice of it on Instagram and was very curious. The combination deer and black nut is simply stunning!

The black walnut is not exotic, but a walnut grown and refined in Germany. In a very complex process, unripe walnuts are processed over several weeks with water and sugar syrup and then stored for about half a year. I cannot help advertising for the company Kauzenberg in Bietigheim-Bissingen in Baden-Württemberg. It is a small family business that sells the black nuts online in dried form or in jars in syrup. A really exciting product the Weipprecht family from Kauzenberg is manufacturing.

By the way: The black nut syrup is ideal for salad dressings. This results in a unique flavor for all winter salads!

The recipe for the game stock used in the recipe can be found here.

But if he were there, I would spoil him with this dessert: It comes along in three layers: a blood orange ragout, seasoned with grenadine, a quark yoghurt mousse flavored with tonka beans, and topped with deep-fried wonton strips and salted caramel. A dessert that sparkles in your mouth, and certainly enchants your sweetheart!

Risotto Rice October 28th, 2018 | side dishes

The risotto secret

Risotto for guests is not possible. I always thought. You have to stir constantly, add liquid, it must not boil down, must be cooked to the point – that means “al dente”. Too stressful when the guests are already in the kitchen. But that’s not true. The well-known TV and cruiseship chef, Franz Schned, told me how to do it. Risotto, completely relaxed…
