Shanks my Deer Fallow

Braised wild fallow venison shanks with a creamy parsnip puree. Accompanied by sauteed carrot, kumara and bacon lardons, and finished with a rich cherry jus.

Match With Monteith's Barrel Aged Porter

Malty, strong and smooth pinot oak qualities – this beer rounds off the rich earthy flavours of this dish.


The wild venison shank is the star of this dish with its sheer size and rustic earthiness, paired with flavours that don’t over-complicate. This dish is what TOAD Hall is all about – keeping food simple, real and from the heart which allows each element to speak for itself.
