In May 2014, I was invited to share some recipes with roe deer on ‘Frihuset’, a Danish television program on TV2, filmed at the estate at Ryegaard in Kirke Hyllinge. The segment highlighted the different parts of the animal. I made fried testicles, heart tartare with apples and rhubarb reduction, and tenderloin rubbed with birch syrup and birch bud salt, wrapped in birch bark and grilled. It was also the first event I made with my hunter friend David—since then we have hunted together and had some great conversations about the role of hunting in sustainable landscape management, some of which you can listen to on NFLR.
Here are some photos from this tasty, early-summer day.
