Their goose is cooked. Vraiment.

And damn, goose is GOOD.

You totally wish you could have been at my friends’ Frenchified pate-and-goose party.

But you weren’t.

So sad.

Duck rilette, salmon mousse, liver pate, and those tiny pickles I hate.

Ridonkulous pate de campagne.

Feeling dainty.

Fruit brandies for the fortification of prosecco. TRES DANGEREUSE.

  1. That pate de campagne is calling my name!
    Now I see why you were tring to make macarons for the occasion. I’m sure that whatever you brought, it was delicious and perfect for the party.
    I served two geese last year to B’s family but I made the mistake to tell them what we would eat ahead of time. I had all sorts of crazy reactions (they tend to stick to ham or meat for X-Mas) but everyone cleaned their plates and went back for seconds!

    Glad you had a good Christmas!
