Calm down, Lea. ;)

When I went to pick up the meat to make my ostrich wellington I noticed something rather intruiging on the stall. Ostrich liver for £4.50 with the claim that it was comparable to calves liver.

How could I resist? :D So the next week I went back to grab some. The idea of blending  lightly flavoured vinaigrette with figs and serving it over calves liver came from the book ‘Secrets’ by Gordon Ramsey. It hadn’t let me down so far so I thought I’d give it a go with the ostrich.

Ostrich Liver

Not my best photography day. So here is ostrich liver wiht roacket salad, fig vinaigrette and blurry polenta. :/

The ostrich liver was very nice but I don’t think it’s quite right to say it is similar to calves liver. It has a slightly stronger more grassy flavour. As a result it overpowered the accompaniments I’d chosen for it. To be honest I think it would have gone better in something like this chicken liver and mavrodaphne recipe. It’s definitely one to try again though!
