      Funny, living in the middle of foie gras country, that we couldn’t find a fresh goose breast to cook. There were whole birds, but that is ridiculous for the two of us! So we bought ‘Confit d’Oie,’ browned it a bit and it was delicious. Our neighbor mentioned that they were making puree of celery root, which is a standard Christmas legume. We saw some at the market and are going to try it this week. Other than that, this time of year we do see turkeys at the market, so that’s pretty common. Having so much fun cooking with new ingredients and local dishes!

      Ooh, sounds so good. We’ve just finished our Christmas feast of goose, braised leeks, rotkohl, potatoes, and homemade Buche de Noël cake. Accompanied by French champagne and Bordeaux red wine. Oh so good. Merriest of Christmas wishes to you both!!!
