Turkey is a traditional holiday favorite with Americans. Or is it? We certainly eat a lot of it (in 2019, 88% of Americans surveyed by the National Turkey Federation said they eat turkey on Thanksgiving), but are we always loving it?

Just in case turkey isn’t your favorite, or you’d like to try something new, we’re sharing this invitation from The Livestock Conservancy. They’re challenging more people to cook geese for friends and family this December.

The Livestock Conservancy and D’Artagnan Farms Foundation invite you to a special #MyGooseIsCooked Virtual Cooking Workshop

Learn how to cook a goose with celebrated chefs Ariane and Alix Daguin of D’Artagnan Farms Foundation! Ariane and Alix will guide you through the intricacies of roasting a delicious bird with juicy anecdotes about one of the smartest animals in the barnyard.

During the virtual #MyGooseIsCooked Workshop, Ariane and Alix will demonstrate how to cook both a heritage breed Roman goose and a commercial Emden goose at the D’Artagnan stove and Jeannette Beranger, senior program manager at The Livestock Conservancy, will showcase the advantages of raising heritage breed poultry on small farms.

Class Details

Cost: $20
Date: Tuesday, December 8, 2020
Time: 4–5:30 p.m. EST
Registration deadline: December 4, 2020

More than just a cooking demo:
