> Then there are actual Ottoman recipes, which i have translated into English - none using venison, however, since the Ottomans didn't eat game much, if at all.

I suspect that while game dishes were not often served at court, they
were enjoyed in the field. There are plenty of depictions from Ottoman
manuscripts of hunting and hawking. While it is possible that the meat
was not consumed by the nobles involved, it seems unlikely that it
would not be eaten.
