To celebrate the start of the new goose egg season, Somerset free range egg producer and supplier, The Traditional Free Range Egg Company, has partnered with multi award-winning local chef, Brett Sutton of The White Post in Rimpton, to create a set of recipes for its supersized Dabbling Free free range goose eggs. Fresh from landing 34th place in the UK's Top 50 Gastropubs, The White Post's head chef and owner has developed four versatile dishes to take home cooks right through from a hearty breakfast to a decadent dessert.
Combining essentials, such as scrambling and boiling, with those extra flourishes and flavour combinations which take these Dabbling Free dishes to the next level, each recipe has been designed to make the most of the indulgently rich yolk and superior size of goose eggs, which are around three times as large as an average hen's egg.
Beginning with a delightfully dippy soft boiled egg, Brett has then taken inspiration from the wild garlic that adorns the hedgerows during goose egg season for his brunch recipe of scrambled goose egg, asparagus, pancetta and wild garlic gremolata. The White Post's take on Mexican breakfast dish, huevos rancheros, makes a perfect one-pan midweek dinner, while a middle eastern-influenced dessert elevates humble eggy bread to taste bud tingling new heights, with the help of caramelised blood oranges, rose, pistachios and a scoop of ice cream.
The newest addition to The Traditional Free Range Egg Company's Free Collection, Dabbling Free geese enjoy a life of love, care, freedom and fresh air on the pastures of Somerset and landed a Great Taste 1-star award during their very first season in 2016. Packaged inside a little cardboard shed, inspired by owners Dan and Briony Wood's commitment to traditional free range egg farming, each box contains two beautiful pale-shelled goose eggs with enormous golden orange yolks within.
Dabbling Free goose eggs from The Traditional Free Range Egg Company are sold in packs of two and are available from Selfridges, as well as independent retailers across the UK, including delis, farm shops, butchers and grocery stores, RRP £9.99.
