In many parts of Europe, roast goose is eaten at Christmas. Its deliciously deep flavour and juicy succulence is such a treat. Like duck and pork, goose loves fruity flavours, both sweet and acidic.

The potato and apple stuffing recipe below is my favourite to serve with roast goose or duck. The citrusy orange zest and the tart cooking apples complement the rich meat perfectly. Instead of breadcrumbs, it has mashed potato to bring it all together, so it’s gluten-free too. The apple sauce featured here, which can be served on the side, adds another fruity touch to the roasted meat.
