Christmas 3kg Cockerel Hamper

£53.45 £50.00 Availability: From 17th December 2020

The only Great Taste 3*** star cockerel

We’re keen to inspire the cooking of cockerels. The Fosse free range and slow-grown cockerel offers juicier, bolder, and more generous meat than a chicken, with a rich gamey flavour – simple.   

We use same 3 strains of the traditional French breed for our chickens as we do our cockerels and slow grow them to a maturity of 112–140 days. The length of time we give our birds to reach maturity being fed on a natural cereal based diet helps to develop strong nutritious bones, and darker flesh with a rich flavour and meaty texture. 

We really think that people have forgotten how good this bird is.  

Our hamper is great value and includes

Free Range Cockerel – 3kg-3.5kg typically feeds 4-6 people
Arrives fresh. Includes giblets, cooking instructions and a pop up timer.

Cranberry & Clementine Sauce 220ml typically
Homemade tangy and fruity sauce that pairs perfectly with our birds.

Free Range Chicken Liver Pate 175g typically
Smooth and creamy homemade pate topped off with a thyme-infused clarified butter to melt into that warm toast.

Homemade Leicestershire Picnic Pie 500g typically
Slices of our free range chicken, and gammon sandwiched between the traditional peppery, nutmeg-seasoned pork mince.

This is so obviously a well looked after and loved cockerel. The meat is exceptional and full of flavour. The texture is perfect. It’s moist and juicy. Lovely thick skin which cooked beautifully and produced crispy and flavoursome morsels. The fact that it’s grown to at least 120 days means the bone marrow and skeleton have had time to develop and add to the flavour. Absolutely fantastic. Utterly and exceptionally scrumptious! The difference between a well reared bird, of good heritage, grown to maturity and well fed, treated and prepared shows on the palate.

Free Range 4kg Goose Hamper – Free Delivery

£94.55 £90.00 Availability: From 17th December 2020

For an unadulterated Saxon Christmas, it has to be goose.  

*Preorder now for delivery from Thursday 17 December. 

As with Christmas cockerel, the Christmas goose was enjoyed as a popular choice for a delicious Christmas meal up until the 16th Century, before the introduction of turkey. Our Norfolk goose is such a luxurious bird to enjoy together.  

Our free range geese are like the cows of the bird world. They’re truly free ranging having full access to acres of our clover-rich and pesticide-free pastures and are topped up with home-grown wheat without any additives or growth promoters. Our geese are slow grown to a maturity of 6-7 months to develop natural marbling of the meat, and a beautiful fat layer under the skin. Everything they say about the crispy skin is true and the rich, dark meat is simply delicious. 

Our geese are dry plucked and game hung for 7-10 days before dressing.

Clearly a quality animal, with a tasty overall flavour profile. The leg meat is rich and sweet, retaining good moisture. Lovely intense depth on the nose and a really lovely looking bird. There is a lovely sweetness to the meat along with a soft almost perfumed note which is delightful. Great colour to the skin, visibly moist and a lovely savoury, slightly gamey aroma. Good ratio of fat to meat. A very impressive bird!
