A taste of nature
Wild game is both tasty and healthy but used all too little in our meals. Not only is it leaner and more nutritious than other meat, but it is also natural. We can offer you the chance to eat wild game without needing to hunt for it first – and perhaps inspire you to begin eating more wild game in general? At Ulkeröds Gård, we train you in the art of cooking wild game so that you can eat more game as part of your daily meals. The meat is natural, locally produced, ecological and extremely flavoursome. Moreover, wild game contains large amounts of omega 3 and omega 6 fats. The animal has a good life and gets to roam free. It has never been fed antibiotics or artificial food nor been transported from one place to another. While there are a lot of advantages to wild game, there is also a lot of ignorance on the topic. Did you know that…
– Wild game has a high mineral content, particularly iron and zinc.
– Wild game is natural and free from foreign additives, such as antibiotics and artificial colours.
– Wild game is lean and rich in protein.
– Wild game is tasty, as the animal grazes in natural pastures, which makes the meat delicious.
– Wild game is easy to cook with due to its taste and tenderness.
– Wild game is a climate-conscious choice.
At Ekbacken Restaurant, we mainly use meat from wild animals. Otherwise, our meat comes from the animals on the farmstead. Wild game has therefore secured itself a place on our menus. Our own game handling establishment enables us to closely follow the entire process, from the forest to our plates. Oskar Johansson is the hunter on the farmstead who takes full responsibility for the animal, from the forest to the kitchen. This enables us to guarantee the quality of our wild game. Maintaining a good hunting ethic is important for us, as it shows respect for nature and also ensures the high quality of the meat. A stressed animal reduces the quality of the meat. Good hygiene is also extremely important and just common sense when it comes to handling meat. At our game handling establishment, we sort the meat and cut around bullets. All the meat is inspected. As soon as the game has fallen, we handle it following the same hygiene requirements and with the same care as for other food. For us, wild game represents a positive connection to nature, as it is a healthy and climate-conscious choice. The wild animals that are shot at Ulkeröds Gård are not transported long distances, and the meat is free from antibiotics, artificial colouring and additives. It is also lean and nutritious. Out of respect for nature, we use as much of the animal as possible. “In the kitchen, we see the whole animal as a resource. For example, we make confits from the tongue, cheek, shank and beef knuckle for their taste, and we make stock from the animal’s bones.” Dennis Zikovic, Restaurant Manager
