This is the one recipe on the list that I can say, with experience, is amazing. This Goose and stuffing combination is amazing and I never knew my stuffings needed chestnuts until I tried this one. The fact that I had been enjoying stuffing without them for so long seems ridiculous now that I have had them. Of course nothing pairs better with them than this deep flavourful goose recipe. Try them, love them and never be the same after.
