Scottish born, London based Mac & Wild have recently announced that their award-winning venison and beef or ‘venimoo’ burger kits are available for nationwide delivery.

The DIY Mac & Wild burger kits contain everything you need to make these restaurant-quality burgers at home – either for two people as an indulgent treat or for four people.

What to expect

If you’re currently inundated with deliveries then this one will stand out thanks to the branded box and details of the burger on the outside.

Each Venimoo Burger Kit reflects Mac & Wild’s ethos of offering consumers sustainable Scottish produce and the packaging is ethically sourced.

Inside you’ll find eight burgers – four beef and four venison – baby gem lettuce, gherkins, burger cheese slices, two peeled and finely sliced onions, ready to be caramelised at home, as well as sesame brioche buns.

A selection of sauces including; béarnaise, mustard and Mac & Wild’s Red Jon Sauce are in the pack as well.

Don’t be overwhelmed, there’s a recipe card with pictures and easy to follow instructions.

This recipe card ensures that cooking and assembling the burgers is easy. All you need to do is caramelise the onions, chop the gherkin, get the sauces and cheese ready, fry the burgers and stack onto a bun.

Once ready the burgers look and smell awesome – and could have easily come from a restaurant instead of the kitchen at home.

Taste-wise, you can tell the quality of meat and the combination of beef, venison and the sauces are delicious. It genuinely is the best (and easiest) burger I’ve cooked at home. You might not think you can finish it all (if there’s only two people) but it’s hard not to.

With regards to the burger meat, the team say: “All game and meat provided is sustainably sourced and sent direct from the Highlands, with the beef supplied from Highlander and Shorthorn breed cattle, slow growing breeds offering a less harsh impact on the environment, and wild venison from the Highlands.”

How to buy the kit

Available to purchase online via the recently launched Mac & Wild butcher, the Venimoo kit – priced at £28 – will be the first of its kind available for delivery across the nation, and comes filled with sustainable and traceable ingredients including wild venison and beef fresh from the Highlands.

Those looking for a tipple to enjoy alongside their Venimoo burger, can add a Mac & Wild pre-bottled cocktail to their order.

Handcrafted in small batches in Edinburgh by Mac & Wild’s very own mixologist, Luke Leiper, the pre-bottled cocktail range includes the Foraged Old Fashioned Bonnie Sptriz, Blackwatch Espresso Martini and the newly launched Bobby Burns Manhattan with Copper Dog whisky.

After setting up a successful street food business that brought Scottish produce to London, they now own two restaurants there.

Mac & Wild also have a eatery and accommodation at the Falls of Shin in the Highlands.

This is the first time that their produce has been available for delivery nationwide.
