Well Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat!
Please put a penny in my latest hat!!
Traditional rhymes made new, but today I am talking new food I am very happy as Cooks&Co are adding goose fat to their range of fine foods.
I was first introduced to the magic of this fat by the gorgeous Nigella Lawson and when she first mentioned goose fat for the perfect roast potato, it doubled sales in supermarkets.
Now that was 4 years ago and with Cooks&Co adding one to the range of fine foods it will be a welcome addition this Christmas.
I was sent some of the range to try and its a hard job but somebody had to do it.
The olives are big and juicy, plump and fresh tasting. The Jalapeno pepper stuffed olives are so tasty, a really good spicy kick,really works well with the mild buttery olive.
The sundried tomato filled olives are a fleeting memory, the sweet full tomato flavour again a perfect match for the olive , so divine in fact I went just now to get another one to talk about it more but they were missing!!! Yikes!!
I have found and rung the culprit, my husband and I asked where they were, in a naughty schoolboy voice he said "They are in my tummy!"
So I said as you have eaten my review, would you care to give me your verdict on them, he said "They were yummy!"
I asked did he care in the interests of my review to elaborate, he replied "They were yummy and I would like some more please!"
Chris doesn't review as you can possibly tell.
My new discovery of a taste I like are the Vine leaves stuffed with rice. I have to admit I did not fancy the idea, but once out of the tin they smelled minty and herby, so I tried them.
They are moist, full of flavour, dill, mint and a lemony taste I detected.
Another great appetiser for Christmas and I can see these being on my BBQ starters and nibbles.
The prices are very good too starting at £2.49 for a good sized jar of olives.
