An old favourite with a distinctive new flavour: venison bangers and a designer mash of celeriac, potatoes and blue cheese are just the thing, with a bottle of hearty red wine, for a warming dinner.

Serves: 4 

  • 750g floury potatoes, such as Desirée or Kennebec
  • 400g celeriac
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 venison sausages, about 75 g each
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 50g Stilton cheese
  • a pinch of ground mace
  • To serve: mixed mustards, chutneys and pickles

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Put water on to boil; preheat the oven to low. Peel the potatoes and the celeriac, cut into small chunks and put into separate saucepans. Cover both with boiling water, add salt and cook gently for 15 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over moderate heat and fry the sausages for 10 minutes, turning frequently to brown well, then transfer to the oven to keep warm.
  3. Drain the celeriac and purée with the milk in a blender, or by hand. Drain the potatoes, add the butter and mash by hand. Combine the celeriac and potato purées, then crumble in the Stilton cheese; season with salt, pepper and mace, and mash again.
  4. Pile the purée into a warm dish and arrange the sausages around the mash or on top of it. Serve with a selection of hot and mild mustards, and chutneys and pickles.
