Fried Pizza, a Neapolitan speciality, was born when “gourmet” food didn’t even exist and people would find creative tasty ideas to feed themselves with. Pizza has its origins in the poorest tradition, even the savory bacon crisps were leftovers. As time went by, imagination and creative solutions led to this unique recipe. Today fried pizza is widespread even in northern Italy. To enhance the local history and the culinary culture, great chefs have revisited traditional dishes, preferring light, low fat and salt products. It is a good way to propose healthier foods, maintaining high quality for more demanding customers.
Some of our Italian customers asked us if it is possible to lighten fried pizza and make it a gourmet dish. After careful evaluation we found out that the summer or pressed goose crisps, made with 65% lean goose meat and 30% turkey meat, is a tasty and light goose product that lends itself perfectly to being crumbled and to replace the pork crisps inside the dough. With this ingredient we get a lighter but equally tasty fried pizza that could also tempt the whole audience of people that look at this ancient Neapolitan recipe with a bit of suspicion and distrust.
For those who love the pleasures of the table, the hardest time is the one that follows the Christmas holidays! This is the ideal time to get back into shape and think about a healthy and nutritious diet to rebalance the body and "detoxify" from all those products that Christmas brings us to eat in great quantities.
Broths, soups, grilled poultry meat, scented salads and rice cakes are the proposal of the day both in the home menu and in the TV proposals, that will probably accompany us through Carnival.
Is it possible that there’s no better way to get back into shape than depriving ourselves of the pleasures of the table, including our beloved elegant, gourmet products? Of course it can be done, and we, at Oca Sforzesca, are at the front line offering products that are light, healthy, nutritious and rich in taste, ideal for this period.
This is why we decided to devote a snack or, better still, an idea that can help you: an original quick lunch or dinner, suitable for this period of "gourmet break" after the holidays.
We thought about one of the lightest and most delicate items of our basket of goose products, the cooked goose ham made only with the best breasts and legs coming from the ground farms in our territory. This product is added with a little Italian sea salt and spices to enhance its unique taste.
Fresh, tasty, elegant and especially light ... These are the characteristics that evoke one of the world’s most famous and imitated preparations: Sushi.
As a Japanese tradition, Sushi, despite the abundance of ingredients, continues to be hugely successful all over the world, thanks to the features just mentioned and the oriental touch that we like to savour during our evenings out, or not.
Normally tuna and salmon are master in this preparation, but we decided to propose a fresh and delicious sushi without fish, but with Italian lean goose meat. A sushi characterized by the typically Italian touch that is expressed with the harmony of the ingredients, with the naturalness of the preparation and with the use of typical Italian products.
So we thought of replacing algae, salmon and wasabi, which are far away from our gastronomic traditions, with seasonal and local ingredients that might express the best of the “Made in Italy” culture which is the result of creativity, design, good taste and naturalness blended together.
The combination of the words “goose+sushi” result in GOOSHI, an imaginary name for the new dish, as sliced zucchini, local Selenium rice, Mantova melon and Vigevano smoked goose breast become the protagonists of this unprecedented gastronomic preparation.
In GOOSHI, the Italian goose products repalce the fish, keeping the same characteristics of freshness, lightness, digestibility and above all the undeniable elegance of the Italian stile.
A simple dish, suitable for the hottest season that we propose in our 100% Made in Italy version.
