Hi joiji, I'll give it a miss - I'm quite happy with the horsehair brush and elbow grease method so far smile.gif

ROAST VENISON WITH A CLASSIC JUS
Serves 4
600g venison fillet
8 juniper berries
2 fresh bay leaves
10 peppercorns
1 small chilli
20 g (¾ oz) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
coarse sea salt
Sauce
1 bottle good red wine
50 ml (2 fl oz) balsamic vinegar
3 shallots, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed with a knife
8 juniper berries
6 cloves
1 fresh bay leaf
2 tablespoons brown sugar
30 g (1 oz) unsalted butter
sea salt and freshly
ground black pepper

For the venison, crush the juniper berries, bay leaves, peppercorns and chilli in a mortar. Rub this mixture into the meat and let it stand (outside the refrigerator) for about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 180°C. In the meantime, put the sauce ingredients except the butter, salt and pepper in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until reduced to about 200 ml (7 fl oz). Strain the liquid through a sieve and return it to the pan. Add the butter and heat until it melts into the sauce. Taste for salt and pepper. Keep warm while you cook the venison.
Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan, and as soon as the butter begins to foam, put the venison into the pan and brown it quickly on all sides, sealing in the juices. Transfer the meat to an oven tray and roast for about 10 minutes (if your venison weighs more or less than 600 g, calculate the cooking time based on 15 minutes per kilogram for rare, and 20 minutes per kilogram for medium rare.
It is important to rest the meat for as long as you cooked it in the oven, loosely wrapped in foil to keep it warm. Slice the meat, put it on a warmed serving plate and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Pour over some sauce, putting the rest in a bowl to serve on the side

 

Oh deer!

A girl at work was talking about how she bought her boss (a Judge) a nice tie today at Ludlows for Xmas... upon further inquiry from me, it turned out that it was a 7 fold Henry Carter Navy/White Stripe tie.

So, Jason, your ties will be gracing some auspicious necks pretty soon...

Funnily enough she had actually complimented me on my own HC tie in the very same pattern a couple weeks ago. She bought this one without even realising they were one and the same. I guess it was so nice that it was stuck in her subconscious.

Good to hear, I think Ludlows are probably smashing it in these last few days before Xmas. I sent Richard a few extra ties which he only got today and they are sold already by about 3pm.

Funny also about that navy striped tie is that I also gave one to my father in law to wear for our wedding and my sister in law has just bought the last one for her fiancé's dad for Xmas as well. It'll be one that I'll definitely have to re-stock soon.

I still want that caramel twill  (think it's a twill) that's sold out.

 

Dayum, with my use of navy that tie would be bodacious.

I'd be surprised if you couldn't get enough interest to do a MTO is Jason wasn't planning on restocking them.

I'm pretty sure there is fabric for it still but i probably will re stock it anyway. But if I don't yeah I can just get 1 made up for you when I get some new stuff in feb/march. Anyway send me an email at jason@henrycarter.com.au if you are keen and I'll see what the fabric situation is. Same goes for anyone else.

An O&J red chambray shirt arrived today.

 

Considering this is the first chambray I have felt, it is quite surprising as to how different it feels from a 'normal' cotton shirt. Unique and stylish.

 

The shirt is really well finished, especially the high armholes. The pocket is a lovely touch, and the collar is just the way I like it.

 

My only criticism would be that it isn't as slim as HC shirts, but the difference in slimness is only slight.

 

Really looking forward to wearing my first red shirt :).

MS, a 'perfect' collar is subjective. No such thing exists.

And, please, for the love of any deity, do not get red jeans. Not that they don't look good, I particularly like pants in red - pants in both the Australian English and British English sense of the word - the latter variety especially on buxom women. Just don't man.

Yep, I was referring to my sense of perfection :).

 

My mistake.

I've given Owen & James a shot. their white OCBD quality is very high and it's something you can wear time and time again. i'd expect same with their signature white shirt.

Thanks all for the feedback - Owen & James and HC are exactly what I'm after. Thanks again. Tom

Got my work Xmas Party tonight. Should be GOOOOD.

Just got back from four days of camping at the beach with the family, and am now furiously trying to finish off a pile of work before taking a break from lunchtime tomorrow.

I'm looking a bit festive today, in a plaid madras shirt, light blue chambray bow tie, sand-coloured jacket with patch pockets, navy cotton trousers and suede shoes.

Have a great time tonight, and I hope that everyone has a fantastic time over the Christmas - New Year period.
