I like to cook food from game meat, partly because I also like to eat it. At our restaurant, we always look forward to the fall when we cook and serve that which nature has prepared for us over the summer. It has become a tradition by now (mushrooms, quail, risotto, pumpkins, and more).
Preperation time: 5+ hours to marinate the meat; 30 minutes to prepare the ingredients.
Cooking time: 2-4 hours.
