How much guilt in a gourmet dish are we willing to tolerate?
Everyday we are bombed with more or less truthful information about what ends up in our daily diet ... and there is no food that will be saved from this discrimination. Vegetables and fruits treated with chemicals, contaminated dairy products, fish and meats polluted with unnatural substances or animals raised in non-ethical ways.
How much are we willing to put up with? And then above all, what shall we eat and what will we avoid to put an end to unhealthy and ethically wrong food choices? Do not believe that to eliminate some products or entire categories is the only way.
Eating with our head before our mouth is the only solution to this huge problem. Making conscious choices about your diet can help us to bring all food categories on the table without exception, paying attention to ethical and healthy choices.
When we talk about goose liver, gourmet people and high-class international cuisine experts already delight in the sweet flavour of foie gras, which is the millennial ally of the great chefs, but we know it is losing its fame, precisely for its production technique. On the other hand there is Oca Sforzesca company and it is goose liver production: healthy, tasty, rich in iron, light and fragrant which is obtained from animals raised in farms where they wander and feed freely.
With this extraordinary product, we decided to realize our usual Risotto with tastes and perfumes of this season.

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 ...

Foggy days of early of November, suitable for putting a new risotto with goose products at the table.
Since the season allows it, we have decided to enrich this preparation with the new goose liver salami by Oca Sforzesca which is made exclusively with healthy raw materials, coming from animals raised outdoors and naturally fed.
The liver sausage is a delicate goose product, which lends itself to savory preparations and original food combinations without overwhelming the flavor of the other products.
To balance this risotto, we have added seasonal ingredients such as turnips, the brandy which, with its rounded sweetness, slightly enhances the taste of the liver and pecorino cheese that make the dish savory.
The best way to start the Autumn?
Talking about risotto!
Walking along the long country roads that cross the great plains of Lomellina it is impossible not to notice the golden rice fields. Real sun colored handkerchiefs surrounded by green hedges that enhance the beauty of this golden cereal.
October is the ideal month to dedicate the first of a long list of risottos that we have planned for you.
The first risotto that we want to offer you is perhaps one of the most traditional and tasty of our land: Risotto with Vigevano cooked goose salami and Dorno Bertagnina pumpkin. They are two excellences of our territory that create an elegant harmony and tell stories about our traditions.
A recipe that characterizes our territory and which is able to enclose three treasures of our land: Carnaroli rice which is born in the water, Bertagnina pumpkin daughter of the earth and the goose meat with its rich history.
