I've never cooked a goose although I may have had my goose cooked a few times. One of these days I should cook a goose...

I've never had any problem getting frozen ducks at Los Angeles supermarkets. I've roasted whole ducks and served with Gran Marnier based orange sauce, and cooked duck leg quarters in a Thai coconut milk curry. Both were excellent!

I wonder if the Asian markets sell duck fat, for rendering.

As I said earlier on in the thread, you can get duck fat at places like Whole Foods, and even Trader Joes. Already rendered/refined.

Thanks for the reminder. I forgot that too!

I've cooked many a goose, but only one domestic goose. I prefer wild geese, but they are hard to come by now that I don't live close to my cousins who hunt.

Come winter, we have plenty of Canadian geese. They are a nuisance. They make a very large mess with their droppings.

Thanks mainly due to previous posts in DC (I think it was Vitauta and/or Claire), some time ago I roasted a duck. The duck was OK, but the fat was yum -- potatoes fried in duck fat, mmmm good. I bought a small jar of rendered duck fat at Williams Sonoma for what I thought was a lot of $$ for a little fat. I still have about a third of it in the fridge. I'm hoarding it and will hate to see the last of it. I realize it's bad for my arteries, but you only live once.
