To make the sauce, roast the goose bones in the oven until dark brown but not singed. Add the vegetables and cranberries to the pan and continue to cook until golden brown

  • 300ml of red wine
6
Add the brown chicken stock and bring to the boil. Transfer to a saucepan and simmer for 90 minutes
  • 2l brown chicken stock
7
Pass the sauce through a fine sieve and reduce by half. Set in the fridge until solid and remove any fat that surfaces. Store in the fridge until ready to reheat and serve
8
To make the date purée, cover the remaining dates with water in a pan. Simmer over a very low heat for 45 minutes until dates are soft and the water has almost evaporated. Blend to a paste and reserve for later
  • 260g of Medjool dates, pitted

To make the celeriac purée, combine the milk and double cream in a saucepan and add the celeriac. Cover with parchment paper
  • 250ml of double cream
  • 250ml of milk
  • 1 celeriac, peeled and roughly diced

Bring to the boil and simmer until the celeriac is soft. Allow to cool, then transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Season to taste
11
To prepare the goose, blend the star anise with the salt and rub the mixture onto the goose breast
  • 1 star anise
  • salt
  • 1 goose breast, from a 7kg bird
12
Add the breast fat-side down to a cold pan and gradually increase the heat, slowly rendering the fat 15–20 minutes until the skin is golden and crispy
13
To prepare the dates and bacon, wrap 10 of the dates in slices of streaky bacon. Place under warm grill to cook for 6 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Meanwhile, reheat the goose sauce in a saucepan
14
To serve, cut the goose breasts into 5 slices and add a slice to each plate on top of a spoonful of date purée. Add 1 spoonful of celeriac purée, and 2 of the bacon-wrapped dates to the side. Add a spoonful of the pickled cranberries over the top to finish
