The Goose on your Thanksgiving table

The basics are covered for your Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, check. Stuffing and potatoes, check. Cranberries, gravy, pie, check, check, check. But part of tradition that's grown up around the fourth Thursday of November has to do with the extras: extra seats for family and friends, extra time around the table, extra special care preparing the dishes, whether old standards or new takes.

The Goose is packed with all the essentials (organic mirepoix, local squash, house-made poultry stock and sausage, fresh rolls, and more), but the Goose is all about the extras, too. Space on the shelves in our fully-stocked cellar is devoted to a few new bottles sourced just in time to bring a little extra to your holiday feast.

At the Goose, we like to add a fourth word to Bourbon Barrel Foods' three word philosophy: slow, small, simple...delicious. The only small batch soy sauce brewed in the U.S. is aged in old bourbon barrels from Buffalo Trace for that little extra sweetness and light smokiness. Sprinkle their bourbon-smoked black pepper or bourbon-smoked paprika over Thanksgiving gravy or roasted sweet potatoes for another rich flavor. You might have to fight Granddad for the last biscuit when Bourbon Vanilla Sorghum is on the table.

And while you're in the Goose's cellar, don't forget to check out November's Wines of the Month that Gabe chose especially with your Thanksgiving feast in mind.

From our gaggle to yours...Happy Thanksgiving!
