We know a lot of chefs over here at Clean Plate Charlie.
So when we get a crazy idea in our heads, we know who to contact.
Just before Christmas, we decided we wanted to get some ideas on how to eat Santa's favored mode of transportation for the holiday. And yes, we're fully aware that our sense of humor is slightly morbid.
To help us drum up some ideas, we reached out to The Dubliner's executive chef, Greg Schiff, who is quite the wild game enthusiast, to walk us through different ways of preparing reindeer.
Little did we know at the time that he would take that idea and run with it; after hanging up the phone with us, Schiff ordered up some reindeer sausage and stew meat to whip up in the restaurant.
Obviously, we had to get in on that; we dined on reindeer right around Christmas. As disturbing as it may sound -- sorry, Rudolph -- it's actually a more environmentally friendly, healthy, and humane animal protein to eat than anything you'll find in your corner grocery store.
