Place a small pan on a high heat and line with rapeseed oil. Add the girolles and season with a little salt. After about 2 mins, add the chopped shallots and parsley. Remove from the heat and strain on a kitchen towel. Check the seasoning and keep warm until ready to serve. To serve, place the sourdough in the middle of the plate, add the girolles on top, and slice the venison and place it on top of the mushrooms. Just before serving, grate over the dark bitter chocolate.
