Goose is a meat that I cook more at home than at my restaurant. But I go often to the Glorieuses de Bresse contests in Montrevel, where I’m always impressed by those spectacular rows of artistically “dressed up” geese.
I like to cook goose on a spit when I’m in the country, and to share it with the family during the Christmas holidays. I stuff it with goose foie gras, chestnuts and a little truffle, and I use the giblets for the sauce. I serve it with a cardoon or squash gratin – simple and delicious. And the next day we eat the leftovers with a nice salad.
