The Italian lean goose bresaola is made from the Romagna goose breast. The geese are raised on the ground with natural feeding without force feeding. You can recognize it immediately with the naked eye by the lean/fat ratio: abundant muscle and thin superficial fat.
The breast is prepared directly at the slaughterhouse and keeps unaltered all the sensory and nutritional characteristics of fresh goose meat. At the factory, the breast is salted with Italian sweet sea salt and processed according to the typical technology of bresaola.
Many are the advantages of this charcuterie: from high protein content (38%) to reduced fat content (11%) of which most is oleic acid (valuable ally of our cardio-circulatory system). The Italian lean goose bresaola is ideal for low calorie diets, for sportsmen or gluten-free diets.
The flavour and the smell are intense, typical and slightly smoked, without covering the characteristics and the elegance of lean goose meat, but enhancing it by softening the taste. It is great as appetiser, as topping on risotto or as a main course with a side of grilled vegetables.
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.

There are sounds which are able to recall to our mind some situations, but above all there are flavours and fragrances that we easily associate to a season.
Winter is coming up, the tables in the North of Italy are purple as the leaves of the winter radicchio vegetable. The crackling fire in the fireplace reminds us of the uniqueness of goose smoked salami like our very own Vigevano goose breast.
The meeting and the memory of these flavours with these colours can only inspire us to try a new simple, but tasty risotto in order to welcome the month of December.
Here's what came to our minds ...

There is gastronomic excellence for each territory of our country: from the pecorino cheese with beans in Lazio, to cured ham and figs in Emilia Romagna to the sea cobs and the white polenta in Venezia Giulia.
Much to my surprise I have discovered a culinary marriage with solid roots in the Lombardy and Piedmont traditions: goose and rice. These two products represent the gastronomic identity of the areas, each with its own history and importance.
Today we are thinking about the hot season and at the same time about giving importance to a vital union between the goose and rice. Our intention is, through ancient knowledge and tastes linked to Vigevano’s goose salami, to recognize what is typical about the territory.
The first light delicate digestible summer proposal has been represented by the Italian sushi!
The ingredients used are of course all Made in Italy with an original touch that distinguishes these preparations: better quality Selenium rice, Lomellina cooked goose ham and Lomellina smoked goose bresaola.
Selenium Rice is a historical Italian variety with small and round grains with a particular pearl and crystal shade. Because of its low amylose content and high amylopectin content, the Selenium rice becomes quickly sticky and at the same time remains soft even after cooking so it is perfect for making sushi.
