G 450 (1 pound) Elk meat
N 1 small shallot, minced
G 30 (N 2 tbsp) minced drained capers
mL 15 (N 2 tbsp) grainy mustard
N 8 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
mL 2 (1⁄2 tsp) kosher salt
N 4 quail egg yolks
Hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce to taste (few dashes of each)
Flaky sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Fresh artisanal bread or toast
Shaved radish, pickles and chives for garnish (optional)


  • Trim away any fat and silver skin from the outside of the heart. Cut the heart in half lengthwise and cut out and discard any veins or tendons. Dice the cleaned heart meat into 1⁄8-inch (3 mm) cubes and place in a medium bowl.
  • Add the shallot, capers, mustard, parsley, and a few splashes each of hot sauce and Worcestershire. Add the kosher salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 portions. Place a 3.5- to 4-inch (9 to 10 cm) ring mould on a chilled plate and, using a spoon, gently pack the mould with the tartare.
  • Make a small well in the centre of the formed tartare and place a quail egg yolk in the well. Season the yolk with flaky sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.
  • Remove the ring mould. Repeat to assemble the remaining tartares. Serve with fresh artisanal bread or toast.
