Cervena Venison and Shitake Dim Sum in Aromatic Broth with Steamed Vegetables.

Last year in the mid-semester break I went on a trip to South East Asia, travelling across Malaysia and to Singapore with a local family. 

With this in mind I wanted to use ingredients that were familiar to Kiwis, which would be the New Zealand farmed Venison. My dish is a fusion of the exotic flavours used in South East Asian cookery, and a familiar, yet sought-after ingredient used in New Zealand cuisine. Together creating an affordable meal is still be packed full of flavour, as if you where eating this dish at a street stall in South East Asia.

Farm-raised venison mince is available at supermarkets under the Silver Fern Farms label. I prefer it over any other red-meat mince because it is very low in fat. Ginger in syrup is sold in jars and available at speciality food stores and some supermarkets.
