  1. Eland is one of the largest and most sort after antelope for venison – it is a healthy and flavourful alternative to Beef with a similar texture so great for people trying venison for the first time
  2. The Brie Cheese must be thinly sliced and placed on the hot burger patty so that the cheese melts and oozes through each bite of the burger
  3. You can add a little red wine or balsamic vinegar to the fig chutney or some sweet pickle to the burger  if you like a little tangy crispness (cuts through the richness of the brie and the sweetness of the fig)
  4. Messy but delicious – best served with an ice cold beer and lots of serviettes
