Today in our rhythmic remembrance of the Christian calendar, we think of St Hubert who liked to hunt. He probably wouldn’t be too popular in todays world. The story is that just before firing his arrow at a deer, he saw a cross between its antlers and it changed his life. He later became bishop of Tongres and was honored in France and Belgium as the patron saint of hunters. Those remembering him often cook with venison – which i couldn’t find at my butchers so I am substituting it for a gamey tasting stuffing with bacon. Recipes are here.
No Feast day tomorrow but i think Harvest Festival is celebrated in a lot of countries.
