Venison pie is taken pretty seriously in the roadside stops, country hotels and farm kitchens of the Karoo – which is as it should be. It’s a brilliant way to showcase lean game meat, but it’s the complexity of this recipe’s rich gravy that makes it stand out. For this pie, you could make your own pastry but, let’s face it, sometimes it’s okay to grab some puff and roll it out. The surprising starring role here is played by white pepper. We don’t use it often enough – and when used with venison, it really begs the question “Why not?”
