Even better if you can, come on over to the amazing Welsh Venison Centre from noon to take part.

Our wonderful chef Sue will show you how to cook venison over a wood fire using kiln dried wood from Certainly Wood. As well as steak, sausages and venison burgers, we’ll show you the perfect accompaniments – a great winter slaw, fab salsa and parcels of winter vegetables cooked in the fire. (Recipes below ) It’s going to be delicious!

If you have any questions you’d like us to ask Elaine (Mrs Venison) about the centre, the deer or the venison or if you’d like to know anything about how we cook on the Woodee Fire Pits, get in touch and we’ll answer them during the cookout.
