kosher goose

cathfish Oct 6, 2004 08:41 PM

I would like to make a roast goose for Chanukah. I have tried for several years now to a kosher goos with no luck. Butchers in New York tell me they can't find a supplier, & I have failed searching on the web. Anyone have any ideas? thanks

    Fisher Bros usually gets in a bunch around Thanksgiving time. Check with them. They have a supplier via Brooklyn, I believe. You have to buy the whole goose and a 5-9 pound bird is about 7-8 dollars per pound.

          We found frozen kosher geese a few years ago at Landau's on 18th Ave in Bklyn - they were International Glatt brand.

          Wow! This place even has kosher Turducken! Amazing!

            I caught that too, bride. It's missing the cajun sausage, but I think it's close enough!

            My family has been talking about getting Truducken for Thanksgiving for 2 years. Can anyone recommend either the food or service at this place? Products look very cool.

              Just an FYI on Aaron's - if you call aaron's and ask about the supervision, they will tell you the supervision originally given on the product you are interested in (ie, ou, crc).However, all the meat is repackaged by the store, and there is no way to view the original packaging to know what the source actually was. The store is under certification by Rabby Harry Cohen. While this is acceptable to many on this board, I am pointing this out because those who are not familiar and/or comfortable with Rabbi Harry Cohen's certification should be aware that this is the only supervison at the store.

                I asked my Rebbe and the Vaad of Queens does not recommend this restaurant. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Just an FYI.
