Bloomsbury Venison Tenderloin

A beautiful tenderloin of venison being sliced.

Venison is a wonderful red meat.  Recently our niece shared a venison back-strap…that is deer code for venison tenderloin.  It was from a hunt enjoyed by our great nephew.  As I was not cooking it on the grill, wrapped in bacon of course, I thought our “1/4 marinade” was a great option. Bloomsbury ¼ Marinade […]

Bloomsbury Meatloaf!!!

Beautiful plate of meatloaf.

Bloomsbury Beef Wellington

Beautifully prepared beef wellington with a side of fresh asparagus

Bloomsbury Beef Wellington First comes the shopping!  For a good beef wellington you must purchase quality items.  We buy trimmed beef tenderloin, 1 ½ inch thick.  The pate is always a duck/goose liver pate…no chicken and no additives such as port wine or peppercorns.  Mushrooms, parsley and scallions:  mixed mushrooms, only fresh, are a good […]
