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.
Guild of Fine Foods Great Taste 3 Star Winner, 2019 judges comments:
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.
