Rehpfeffer

Rehpfeffer

This Rehpfeffer, a kind of deer stew, has a secret ingredient: chocolate. Well, it's not such a secret, because Betty Bossi, Switzerland's consummate domestic authority,  suggested it here. And since this is Switzerland, it seems fitting. Traditionally, you would use animal blood to thicken the sauce and give it a nice, dark colour. I prefer the chocolate.

Wild

Wild is the German word for game (as in animals that you can hunt). Autumn is Wild season and restaurants all over Switzerland and central Europe prepare plates that feature game meats and traditional side dishes.
