Christmas Roast Goose

Have you received our marketing emailer for The French Grocer Christmas Menu 2023? https://thefrenchgrocer.com/festive-season-selection-by-the-french-grocer-singapore  You’d see that apart from preparing a host of delectable festive goodies, we have also brought in a few “Stars of Christmas” products that are rather interesting and will surely delight your guests at the dining table. And one of the stars of our Christmas this year is the Whole Goose (Raw) https://thefrenchgrocer.com/product/hungarian-raw-whole-goose-without-giblets-3-2kg-pc-fozen that we have specially imported from Hungary. Goose is a traditional alternative to the typical turkey at Christmas and it may be seldom seen but don’t underestimate its rich, full-bodied flavour especially when roasted!

With giblets already removed and pre-frozen for your convenience, all you need to do is to defrost and pop it into the oven for a sumptuous Christmas feast like no other! But how do you go about roasting goose, given that it’s not a very common bird on the dining table? We share a quick-and-easy recipe below to get you going.

First, you should defrost the goose until it has reached room temperature before the next step of cooking. Since this product already has its giblets removed, you can go on to the next step which is to remove any excess fat. However, don’t just discard the fat – you might want to save it as goose fat is a lovely thing that’s even healthier than butter! Next, get a cooking needle and prick the meat on all sides. This is to loosen up all the remaining fat underneath the skin so that the skin will eventually turn up nice and crispy – the hallmark of a nicely- roasted goose! And we’re here at the most important step which is to season the goose. Rub it with half a lemon and sprinkle salt liberally all over. You can also stuff garlic and other spices or herbs inside the goose for a flavour-bursting meat. Then place the goose on a roasting pan and pop it into the pre-heated oven at about 160C. After the goose has been in the oven for about 20 minutes, it’s time to add some root vegetables of choice and continue cooking for another 40 minutes at about 60C. And voilà, a Christmas roast goose!

Crazy For Macarons!

As a Frenchman, there are many things that I am passionate about when it comes to promoting French foods and cuisines. We have the very classic foie gras, confit de canard, boeuf bourguignon, bouillabaisse among many others but who could forget the hot favourite for those with a sweet tooth…macarons! Nobodu is quite clear about the history of macarons but it could have been brought into France during the 16th century and later made popular by two nuns who were seeking refuge from the French Revolution by baking small pastries to support themselves. The initial macarons were very simple with just egg white, sugar and ground almonds. Then everyone knew what happened: French pastry began taking over the world with chic maisons such as Ladurée and others!

In this edition of The French Grocer blog, I am delighted to introduce the very exquisite creations from Swiss pastry chef Gerard Dubois: https://thefrenchgrocer.com/product/la-rose-noire-assorted-macarons-72-pcs-box-frozen These wonderful macarons are 100% handcrafted and made with the finest ingredients. Back in 1991, Gérard Dubois opened the first La Rose Noire Pâtisserie in the most prestigious shopping mall on Hong Kong Island. In over 2 decades, that one simple operation, a 30-seat restaurant and cake shop, has turned into a reputable enterprise. In 2012, Gérard and the team opened a HACCP/ISO/FSSC 22000 certified state-of-the-art factory in Clark Free Port, The Philippines.

Take your pick from an assortment of flavours such as Chocolate, Earl Grey, Coffee, Lemon, Orange, Passion fruits, Raspberry, Salted Caramel and Vanilla. They come in a convenient 36–piece tray (each pack containing 2 trays), perfect for parties and large gatherings!

The French Grocer is also excited to present other mini desserts in our collection such as chouchous, carolines and cheesecakes. So visit our bakery section today to indulge in your favourite desserts  https://thefrenchgrocer.com/shop/mini-desserts

Earthy and Flavourful Dried Morel Mushrooms

Mushrooms add flavour and an interesting profile to dishes. Whether in soups or sautéed, they are a remarkable ingredient to have. In this blog post, we introduce the Dried Morel Mushroom and a few simple recipes to prepare them. They are a type of wild mushroom with an earthy, nutty flavour. They have a meaty texture, unlike the more slimy texture of other mushroom varieties. These mushrooms are a highly desired ingredient among chefs and mushroom enthusiasts.

Morels vary greatly in size and appearance. Their shape can range from oblong to bulbous, and their colour from blonde to grey. Here, we share some quick and easy ways to cook Dried Morel Mushrooms in order to get the most of out them.

Note: morel mushrooms must be cooked, do not consume them uncooked.

 Fried: this method is best with whole or large pieces. You have to soak the dried morel pieces in milk for about 20 minutes until you can gently bend them. While the mushrooms are still soaking, prepare a cast iron skillet on medium heat and douse the surface with oil. Next, coat te mushrooms with all-purpose flour and place them into the skillet. Cook for a few minutes until they are crispy and give off a light fragrance. Season with salt and pepper and put a few dollops of butter over them for that sweet creamy taste!

Melangé With Onions: this method is so simple but it packs a whole punch of flavours! Prepare some yellow onions and caramelise them in a pan over low heat with some butter and a sprinkle of salt. Remember to stir the contents occasionally to prevent them from getting burnt. Next, add the dried morel mushrooms when the onions begin to show some translucency. When the onions slightly stick to the pan, add some chicken or beef stock. For extra oomph, add some sherry. We promise this is going to be so flavourful!

Australian Jumbo Quail…A Different Poultry You Must Try!

Quail meat is perhaps not often seen in Singapore supermarkets but at The French Grocer, we are pleased to offer this new addition to our poultry section: (https://thefrenchgrocer.com/product/australia-game-farm-jumbo-quail-200-230g-pcs-6-pcs-pac-frozen)

This 6-piece pack frozen jumbo quail from Australia weighing in at 200g to 230g each is bred in a cage-free origin. It is low in fat, high in vitamins and is 100% grown in an Australian sustainable farm. This is why the meat is so tender and just mildly gamey. Quail meat has a deep flavour profile, succulent and is a meat that is highly-prized by Australia’s most prestigious chefs. Often used by chefs in simple dishes which grandstand the unique taste of quail. Quails are ideal for healthy living, with a lower fat content and a higher protein and iron content when compared to chicken meat. This means it is also a kids-friendly meat! Add it to your dining table and delight the little ones with this amazing bird.

But how should one cook quail meat to fully appreciate its flavour, given that it can get dry and flaky? The best method is to roast it quickly which results in a seasoned skin while retaining a juicy and succulent interior that surprises with every bite. This also ensures that the meat is moist and evenly-cooked.

For a quick-roast recipe, you’ll need:

  • A jumbo quail
  • Sea salt and black pepper and lemon zest
  • Carrots and celery for roasting in the skillet
  • White wine and chicken stock for the gravy

Before cooking, defrost the quail. Then preheat the oven to 525F (or 274C). Place the quail on a skillet and pop it into the oven for about 7 minutes on each side until it is slightly crispy. After which, remove the quail from the skillet and prepare the gravy over the stovetop. Once ready, drizzle a bit of gravy over the quail. Enjoy!
