With summer at the door, the food proposals for cooler dishes begin to crowd our cookbooks. Unfortunately, many cold cuts tend to disappear leaving space only to salads, seasonal vegetables and lots of fruit.
Are we really sure that we want to give up the pleasure of enriching our recipes with some good slices of salami?
The Lomellina goose galantine is certainly a good solution for the hot season. It’s light, digestible, low in fat content, but rich in flavour and it lends itself perfectly to the creation of delightful dishes and for direct consumption together with a glass of chilled wine.
For the occasion, we have decided to enrich our great salad with our Lomellina goose galantine to give it a distinctive and unique taste.
History, culture, luxury, parties ... these are some of the keywords that are hidden behind a slice of galantine. Forgotten in ancient cookbooks and revived only by a few housewives in Emilia Romagna, Marche and Lombardia, today the galantine comes back to regain the reputation that characterized it for centuries.
So what is hidden behind this delicious preparation? A rich mixture of meat, pork, and farmyard poultry, all the way to game, flavoured with spices, truffles, pistachios and liqueur wines well mixed. All of it well wrapped inside a natural skin case or a salami, cooked at low temperature for hours and drowned in a jelly , from which comes the name of the recipe.
And the goose? That bird isn’t historically known for this preparation , it was replaced by capons, free-range chickens and ducks. Only in the Lomellina area do we discover this curious recipe which is interpreted with goose meat, but it is a tradition to be preserved for the few gourmet people and cuisine experts.
Yet someone decided to revive this gastronomic history page and to transform the noble Italian goose meat in a new tasty goose galantine which is suitable for the most demanding palates.
Oca Sforzesca has selected the best Italian goose meat to create a unique product: the goose galantine. Soft , sweet, tasty , light, elegant , the goose galantine has got all the characteristics you would expect from an Italian goose product, but with a unique taste.
