Four Seasons venison is melt-in-your-mouth tender. It’s mild and delicate, with a refined richness and subtle sweetness; an exceptional protein that fits perfectly with an unbelievably wide range of traditional and innovative culinary styles. Humanely raised to the highest Cervena quality standards, Four Seasons premium venison is free-range, grass-fed, no added hormones or steroids, GMO and antibiotic free, and under three years old when harvested. 

For this contest chefs can choose one of three cuts; 2 rib rack, tenderloin, or 95% lean ground. Entries using any of the cuts can win — what we are looking for is menu ready dishes that are innovative, appealing and efficient to execute.
