  • To prepare the sauce, julienne the onion and carrots, then add the sage and rosemary, a knob of lard, the juniper berries and a drizzle of sunflower oil and brown.
  • Dress the fallow deer loin.
  • In a very hot pan, dry sear the fallow deer dressings, then add to the cooking juices and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the meat, then pass everything through a food mill, discarding the excess fat and put it back on the heat. Add the butter and flour, and allow to toast.
  • Add the red wine and simmer until the alcohol evaporates.
  • Using the stock, bring it to the right consistency and add the paprika, salt and pepper. Once ready, pass everything through a chinois.
  • Clear the loin of any small patches of hide and remove gristle.
  • Season the meat with the chopped thyme and marjoram, the ground pepper and thinly sliced garlic, before enclosing in a vacuum bag and letting it rest for 20’.
  • Prepare the polenta by adding the cornmeal to the bland broth, previously brought to a boil. Stir, making sure it doesn’t stick.
  • Once the polenta is ready, it is to remain soft; put a spoonful of polenta into a glass ramekin and 8-10 cubes of lightly seared meat in a pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add the piping hot sauce, turn off and serve.
