Ohhh, my first ever guest post for someone! I have long been a fan of the RasaMalaysia blog. Her food, and her photography are both top notch, simple and clean. Talk about great food styling and photography – the shots always remind me of Donna Hay. Everytime I go to her blog, I end up leaving hungry. It is seriously good.
So, imagine my complete joy when I got an email out of the blue from the blog author, asking if I wanted to do a guest post on her site. Talk about honored! Her blog is huge, really well known, and full of great stuff. I was floored.
The only choice to be had was what to do for this first time. RasaMalaysia is very seafood focused (which I LOVE), so I figured I would do a meat dish – just something different. It just happens that I came across some amazing elk meat, and had to put it to good use.
The good use was a fantastic little red wine juniper berry sauce (juniper berry goes SO well with game meats), and some great little lard (ohhh I love that L word) roasted winter root vegetables – in this case parsnips and turnips (sweet veg to offset the slightly sharp sauce).
More details and photos, along with this elk backstrap recipe can be seen over on RASAMALAYSIA.COM
I would love to hear what people think! feel free to leave a comment here, and make sure you goto rasa, and leave a comment there too!
