Once you have removed all the sinew from the venison season well and place into a hot frying pan and lightly colour. Add a knob of butter, thyme, garlic and bay leaf.  Place onto a tray and put in the oven at 220°c, cook for 2 minutes on each side, take out and rest for 5 minutes before carving.

For the artichoke a la grecque bring to the boil all the ingredients, apart from the artichoke, and leave to one side. Now you need to prep your artichokes by peeling the stem and removing the outer leaves. Wash the artichoke well, preferably in lemon water as this helps keep it nice and white. Now place your artichoke in to the a la grecque and let simmer for 10 minutes until slightly soft and leave to cool.

For the barigoule mixture you need to finely dice all the vegetables and the sausage de morteau. Pace into a small pan with your demi-glace and sherry vinegar. Cook under pressure by making a lid with cling film this should only take 6 minutes as the vegetables are cut so small be careful not to burn, then remove cling film and lightly season, then add chives.

For the red cabbage purée, finely slice the red cabbage then sweat down in a little oil then add white wine vinegar. Once cooked add the rest of the ingredients and turn the heat down and place a lid on the pan. Once the cabbage is cooked blend until super smooth.

For the sauce, add 200g of beef stock to a saucepan and reduce by half. Peel the button mushrooms, peel and flake the baby onions and add to the beef stock. Simmer for 3 minutes to cook the vegetables.
