In the United States, you don’t see reindeer on the menu. But, in Scandinavia, they are raised for food, just as we do cattle. They have some pretty great recipes for reindeer.

What I’ve discovered, those recipes transfer over very nicely to venison … if you can find it before the hunters have made deerburger out of it, which happens all too often. Like venison, reindeer is very low fat, so one needs to take care not to let it dry out.
