Mac & Wild a marriage of beef and venison

I love burgers! but never had one quite like Mac & Wild’s flavoursome game burger which is a marriage of beef and venison. It is big, powerful, juicy and ever so tasty.

Courtesy of Mac & Wild I was kindly gifted their DIY Venimoo Burger kit to try at home and wow what a burger, nothing to grunt about as this burger was moolicious.

Mac & Wild

Brother Calum & Andy are Scottish and come from a family of butchers. Food loving and passionate about Scottish food they wanted to bring a piece of Scotland to everyone’s plate at their restaurants and to peoples homes.

Their journey started back in 2006 when Calum opened up his first bar and Andy in 2011 with his street food providing Londoners a taste of game from Scotland. Within a year Andy won food trader and young British foodie street trader of the year.

2014 the brothers united over their passion of their homeland Scotland and popped up with Wild Game Co. within Charlotte Street in London. With the success of their pop up restaurant doing well Mac & Wild was born 2015 opening their first restaurant on Great Titchfield Street, then a year later another in Devonshire Square which is a much larger site, bringing game and whisky galore to the city of London.

All their meat is sourced from the Highlands, which traditional farming practices have been preserved. No industrialised animal practices as the animals are reared the right way on open pastures, with natural feed and without the use of any chemical nasties.

Powering on through The Adventure is Real “Upon approaching the dark caves….”

Adventure into another world and escape yourself and become a different character for the night be it a powerful wizard, a fighter or even perhaps a strong Barbarian you will gain within yourself confidence and your fanatical character strength and power. Question is will you be a wand-wielding wizard, or perhaps a righteous cleric? or even become the daring hero you always imagined within The Adventure is Real?

I and a few other members of Love Pop Ups London we took our minds on an adventure through a dangerous cave meeting mystical characters and dangerous obstacles before being confronted by a very evil character.

The Adventure is Real

The Adventure Is Real it’s a combination of role play, a board game and immersive theatre rolled into one.
