French: oie


Goose is known particularly for its foie gras rather than its meat. However when reasonably fatty, the flesh is a tasty delicacy that was even enjoyed by the Egyptians in ancient times. Though now most often supplanted by turkey, the grey goose can weigh up to 12 kg (26 lb.) when fattened for foie gras. The white goose on the other hand is smaller (4 to 6 kg / 9 to 13 lb.) But one thing is certain: goose deserves to regain its former popularity as a dish for the holidays!

Goose is one of the fattiest types of poultry. However its fat is particularly high in mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids that have healthful and protective benefits. Furthermore, unlike other poultry, goose is not something that is eaten very often… so enjoy it without any qualms!
