Venison terrine with cranberries and chanterelles


Recipe: Venison terrine with cranberries and chanterelles

Venison terrine with cranberries and chanterelles. Here is a terrine of venison and pork married in a mixture of armagnac, white wine and spices, for a softer flavor. I flavored my terrine with fresh chanterelles, found in the woods of Franche Comté this morning . The lingonberries will bring a little exotic taste and will color this terrine in small doses.
