To celebrate the start of the Roe deer buck season in Scotland, J Boult Designs is featuring knowledgeable writer and photographer, Linda Mellor and her thoughts on Roe deer in Scotland.    Photo Copyright Linda Mellor Roe Deer in Scotland by Linda Mellor Perhaps Roe deer are a species of deer most closely associated to children’s fairy tales and the Disney film, Bambi.

There’s something incredibly nostalgic and underrated about stuffed peppers. If I’m in the mood for comfort and warmth in winter, stuffed venison peppers are an excellent cheesy way to get a feed without the heaviness of usual wintry meals out there.  Please note that I use goose fat as I feel adding fat sometimes to lean venison works really well. If you’d prefer to use butter or oil, feel free to substitute these out. This dish is a great way to hide some of those vegetables that tiny humans (and larger ones too) have a disdain for. I used mushrooms,...

With comfort food at the top of everyone's list this winter, I've been making food that not only nourishes the body but also feeds the soul. I feel like during this strange time that we're experiencing having a comforting feed is necessary. This recipe would work with venison, wild boar, hare or any wild red meat mince that you have available. I've tried it with moose mince and it's delicious. Adding the milk may seem like a strange ingredient, however, the milk balances the acidity in the tomatoes and also in turn helps balance any "gamey" flavours that may be...
