COLONIAL GOOSE RECIPE BY TALLYRAND

. . . a strange name for a roasted, stuffed leg of New Zealand mutton. It was called 'Colonial Goose' by the early settlers wives as a way of dressing up the fact that mutton was being served yet again!

Purchase a de-boned leg from local butcher. Ask them to French bone it - this is when it is de-boned but the shin end is left in and trimmed for presentation and looks spectacular.

Chef's Tip:

Various herbs may also be added for additional flavour; garlic, rosemary, coriander, parsley, basil etc. These may be chopped or bruised and used in three ways depending on the joint used: sprinkled onto the outside, inserted under the skin or onto the flesh before rolling and trussing (for boned out joints).

Any traditional bread stuffings may also be used with the roast.

Enjoy and bon appetit . . . . .
