Never had Mousaka. What culture is it from? I do have plenty of venison so I will give it a go either way.

Brings back memories of parties of the past. I have made tradditional Moussake, termoussalada, and a Galactaburrecco(sp foooo sure) and a bunch of other goodies. Wow I could really play with this one. Great recipe.
