Goose fat is a versatile cooking ingredients, which can be used in roasts and all kinds of savoury recipes.

Goose fat is incredibly versatile. With its rich, silky texture and subtle, savoury flavour, it has rightly become famous for making the ultimate roast potatoes, but the unique fat can be used to make so many more delicious dishes.

Kept refrigerated goose fat is a solid fat, and fairly liquid at room temperature. It solidifies between 16°C and 22°C and has a melting point between 25°C and 37°C. Notably, Goose Fat has a high burning (or smoke) point which means foods can be cooked at a high temperature without the fat burning or breaking down.

It also has a low proportion of saturated fatty acids compared to other animal fats such as butter and lard (see health section).

The biggest selling point however is the unsurpassed taste of foods cooked using Goose Fat and traditionally has been prized in Europe for frying and roasting vegetables.
