Roast dinner

My first cooking at home was a roast on Easter Sunday

Parboil the potatoes and put in a hot roasting tin with melted goose fat this is the secret to great crispy roast potatoes .

Goose Fat is high in ‘heart healthy’ monounsaturated (55g compared to 19.8g in butter) and polyunsaturated fats (10.8g compared to 2.6g in butter).
Goose Fat is also rich in Oleic acid C18.1 (a specific type of monounsaturated fatty acid) which can lower blood cholesterol levels. Goose fat contains on average 58% oleic acid, C18.1, and is generally higher in comparison to other animal fats.

Fresh herbs from the garden

I cooked the roast beef for 1 hr 30 mins at 180 degrees Celsius . Covered in foil for the first hour and the meat was sitting on garlic and onions .
