This review is long overdue.

But better late than never.

During an Autumn visit to the Black Forest in Germany three years ago, I stayed and dined at the Waldhotel Ehrenbach, in the locality of Hinterzarten.

I took the set menu of the evening and did not regret it. The first dish was Veal Bratwurst with Herbs, on a bed of lentils with sage and apple sauce.

I love lentils, and the combination with the sausage and the apple was great. It worked!

When the pupkin is in season, it just tastes great. The Pumpkin Risotto with Estragon was delicious!

What followed was a masterpiece of mild temperature cooking. Hay protects venison’s meat from excessive heat and keeps it moist and tender.

Venison cooked in Hay, with Garden Vegetables and Bread Dumplings: delicious!
