Pomegranate + Cider Kangaroo with Cracked Wheat, Haloumi + Greens

I’ve featured a couple of recipes on the blog that see kangaroo as the star of the show, and why not?

Wallaby Tartare with Avocado and Fennel

Don’t let the first word of this dish put you off. Yes, it does involve wallaby and yes, it does involve the wallaby being raw. At this point I’m going to have a guess and say I’ve lost about three-quarters of you. For those of you that are still with me, wallaby is an extremely … Continue reading
