kosher goose

  • d

My wife's family is Hungarian, where goose is plentiful. I really would love to make a nice meal for her with goose, but I've heard from many that kosher goose was not available in the US. I just read that Noble Goose in Brooklyn imports from Israel, but I have no contact info for them. Anyone else know anything about tracking down kosher goose--not just liver, the real stuff too! Thanks!

    The Shop Rite Kosher Experience in Cherry Hill, NJ carries frozed kosher goose, as does Best Value kosher market in northeast Philadelphia, PA. There are many Shop Rite Kosher Experiences around the country. If there is one close to you I suggest you call them and ask if they carry it or can special order it. Thank you.

      Thanks! I'm pretty sure there are no Shop Rite's in Manhattan, but I'll look for one outside the city, I guess.

        There is a ShopRite in Brooklyn, on McDonald and I,
        which has an extensive kosher selection. I have no
        idea whether they've got goose, but if they've got it
        in Cherry Hill, then there's a good chance that
        they've also got it in the heart of Flatbush/Boro Park

          I would be very careful about buying goose in the US. European geese are force fed and that is what gives them their flavor and their fat distribution. That feeding process is prohibited by US law because some believe it to be cruel to the geese.

          Also, frozen goose, no matter where it comes from, is way inferior to fresh.

            But wouldn't you agree that frozen goose is better than no goose? :-) The force feeding has been questioned by some rabbinical authorities as well, as I understand. I wonder under what conditions the goose I've eaten--strictly in Hungary--were raised...
            Anyhow, I've found a distributor for goose, thanks to the people at Levana. The company is Globex in Brooklyn. I'll keep you posted!
