- Begin by peeling the carrots, peel down a further layer, take the second batch of peelings and dust in a little flour and deep fry at 150 degrees Celsius for 2-3 minutes
- Thinly slice the remaining carrot and seal in a vacuum pack with a tea spoon of butter and a pinch of salt. Cook sous vide until the carrot is cooked through before blending thoroughly ensuring the puree is silky smooth and well-seasoned.
- Roll the haggis into a neat sphere shape and cut two round disks of puff pastry, place the haggis between the two layers and seal with egg wash. Trim and score with a paring knife to create a decorative effect. Bake for 12 minutes at 175 degrees Celsius.
- Trim the baby carrots and bring to the boil, once tender toss in a little butter and salt finishing with the chard leaves
- Place the jus in a small pan and allow to reduce
- Warm a frying pan on a high heat with oil and coat the venison in seasoning, seal on all sides before adding a spoonful of butter a sprig of rosemary and one garlic clove. Finish in the oven for 5-6 minutes basting repeatedly and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
- Swipe the carrot puree across the plate, arrange the carrots, carrot crisps & chard leaves before carving the venison and plating.
