goose for Xmas dinner

Hi hounds,

My old man wants a goose for Xmas dinner. He's had a rough year, so I told him I'd see what I could do. I've found a recipe that looks like it will be good, but have no idea where to go to buy one. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  1. Savenor's generally has them this time of year. I'd give them a call first, though.

    p.s. it won't be cheap.

    1. I bet Whole Foods and maybe Star Markets have it, probably frozen. Remember to roast with water in the pan to prevent smoking. You'll wind up with a gallon of goose fat.

      1. Maybe you are adventurous enough to try goose confit. It's much easier on a home kitchen and in my opinion a better way to eat goose.

        1. For cooking tips check with the Home Cooking board.

          1. Whole Foods does have geese. A year or so ago there was a terrific article in Saveur on an Austrian Christmas dinner featuring goose. It looked wonderful. I may try it too this year.

              I roasted a Whole Foods goose last year. It was very good, and we were cooking with the rendered fat (french fries, duck confit, you name it) for the next three months.
