The deep historical connection to Milan, under the Visconti reign first and then under the Sforza family, led us to repossess a very interesting product of our territory: authentic goose salami without pork meat. The historical one. The one born in the 13th century and handed down for generations to the present day. By now, we tried to enhance the goose salami, revisit the product in a gourmet fashion and recover the precious heritage of a territory.
Rediscovering the link with the territory and with tradition of making goose salami without pork for us means re-evaluating the dish. A product that tells us a piece of our medieval and Renaissance history, inextricably linked to the typical Italian artisan cuisine of our territory. First of all, we pay attention to the quality and freshness of lean goose meat. The preparation of the goose neck as a skin case with its characteristic external sewing gives it the particular shape of a flask. These are fundamental aspects that best express the historic authenticity of goose salami, with its typical elegance and lightness unique to the rest of the world.
Reviewing the product for today's consumer in a gourmet version means reducing ingredients and salt content, increasing yield in the kitchen and shelf life. In fact, improving the quality of the product to benefit the health aspects inherent in goose meat. All of this is accompanied by a constant commitment to research and development, to collect the heritage of a territory and create new goose products starting from the traditional ones.
Our intention is to offer a totally Italian experience made of exquisite taste. We complete the experience with an impeccable service component and with new and modern gastronomic proposals spread throughout the blog completely dedicated to the goose. From single vacuum packaging to reduce food waste, to sustainable and fast logistics. Not to forget an essential label that conveys elegance and good Italian taste.
We then asked ourselves how to share this with you. Our 100% Made in Italy is the perfect synthesis of tradition, elegance and high quality. A sensorial experience, connected to taste, touch, smell and hearing, but also to a cultural and narrative made up of images, places, traditions and creativity.
Pasta alla carbonara is known throughout the world and its Roman origins are beyond doubt. But it is often perceived as a heavy food, therefore it is not suitable for all occasions, or not suitable for an important amount of the world population that does not eat pork meat. In fact we have a lifestyle that favours important dishes, with good palatability, but at the same time looks for lighter and more digestible foods. Data tells us that as much as 1/3 of the world population does not eat pork meat for different reasons: religious choices such as Muslims and Jews, or for personal and health choices.
It is a pity not to be able to offer this evergreen recipe on all occasions and to 30% of the world population. Losing the opportunity to convey and make known the history of such an important Italian dish by having a suitable meat such as gourmet goose meat. Too good to be true. A meat, the goose, which is red, light, digestible and with great palatability that can further elevate the culinary art and history of this dish and share it in compliance with the food and health requirements which are so important for today’s customers.
With gourmet goose meat we have the opportunity to maintain and enhance the characteristic elements of carbonara pasta and at the same time offer a lighter and more digestible version, more round and with a more enveloping and suitable fragrance. It is a dish for the whole world in which the respect for food requirements and health aspects are met by transmitting that Italian touch that is so appreciated and not always shared.
In the more classic version, goose breast is browned in goose fat with the trick of not letting it dry too much because goose meat is drier and has more protein content than pork meat. For the rest we follow the recipe known to many. Instead, in a more innovative version, cooked goose salami is used, made crispy in pan, and added with salted custard.
In our house by now carbonara pasta is strictly only made with goose products.
