The St. Martin Day is inherently connected with a feast and roasted “St. Martin Goose”. The guests of the Masné krámy restaurant in České Budějovice can look forward to golden roast goose with stuffed apple, red sour kraut and a variety of dumplings. The goose will be roasted in one piece, with one serving being ¼ of a goose, therefore about one kilo. Other specialties from Luděk Hauser’s kitchen will also be worth savouring, such as grilled turkey breasts with bacon, roast chicken thigh a la goose, foie gras and cream soup from goose giblets with peas. The St. Martin Feast in the Masné krámy restaurant begins tomorrow and will last until Sunday 13th November.
“St. Martin goose in the Masné krámy restaurant draw an ever-increasing big interest every year, despite rising competition in the town. 200 servings of goose have been prepared for this year, which is 50 more than last year. We are going to serve only the best quality geese of Czech breeding supplied by Nové Hrady Fishery,” says the Masné krámy restaurant’s chef Luděk Hauser. The geese from Nové Hrady rank amongst sought after specialties, as far as their flavour is concerned; they come from the only breeding farm in the Czech Republic with a more than 30-year tradition. Further information about geese from Nové Hrady can be found here.
