Venison has a unique taste and a darker colour. This product is not very common and considered to be more exclusive. During a holiday in South Tyrol, you should taste it in all cases. Venison is not the preferred meat for everyone. However, the correct preparation and a suitable seasoning create a great culinary experience.

The following recipe, in fact, focusses on this very special product from South Tyrol. It is accompanied by another ingredient found in the local woods: blackberries!
