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,...

I feel like during this strange time that we're experiencing having a comforting feed is necessary.

If you can find the right source, it is a fantastic way to ethically source local meat.  Where to get ingredients:  There are a number of places popping up where you can get ethically sourced, wild venison from. Your local butcher or game dealer is an option. There is also a number of online retailers that make it easy to buy wild...
