Maybe farmed goose has a similar relationship to wild goose as farmed turkey does to wild turkey, and pork does to wild boar, as you'd swear that wild turkey and wild boar are different animals from their farmed cousins based on the difference in flavor, colour, and texture of the meat.

No food should ever be "deconstructed" except with a knife and fork held by the diner.

Food also shouldn't be stacked up in a pile, like a bizarre attempt to model the Leaning Tower of Pisa using meat and vegetables!

I never stuck around long enough to find out. Though in every case they'd been dead long enough to smell, so they were probably pretty soft by the time they got there. They were always in one of the adhesive traps, so I just bung that in a plastic bag and dump it, which is where my involvement ends.

They're always running around somewhere, even in built-up areas. I haven't seen any in my house, but I can't say for sure that the cat hasn't eaten any either.

Canada Geese, Snow Geese, Ross's Geese, Speckled Geese, Sandhill Cranes and most wild ducks have a few things in common. I've eaten them all, and know these facts to be true. I've never picked up roadkilled geese or ducks, but on many occasions my Bogey would tear off into the cat-tails while we walked along the causeway and come back with wounded birds that someone had failed to retrieve earlier.

Oh, lemon too , but real piri-piri oil passed through clarified butter gives it a kick!

It is certainly possible to not like both, but the reasons for each pretty much have to be different.

You might be surprised at the smell of peanut processing and transport - an ar-tic of nuts smells like a ripe portaloo.
I am just not that keen on dining on winged carnivore, perhaps it dates back to the sieventies when the only meat we softie Southerners could afford to eat was chicken, better than coal I suppose but that stuff was expensive...
Smell doesn't bother me, if Cadbury's chocolate factory can smell rank nothing else will ever surprise me when it smells bad!

Front loading washing machines to you too.

Chicken in the seventies........ we're back to moist cardboard again.

Like battery-chickens and eggs and intensively farmed pork, food where cost is driven out is rarely anything more than protein.

…. Or carbohydrates - round red tomatoes and golden delicious apples being two prime examples.

I've eaten road-killed potatoes, and they're good. When the trucks are hauling spuds from the warehouse in Craven to towns further north, some usually fall off, and that's the highway I commuted on. Some were already peeled. In the Okanagan some apples and other fruit on the way to the packing house doesn't quite make it, but that gets cleaned up quickly, likewise the unfortunate deer, bears, elk, etc that failed to negotiate traffic the night before. Road-killed tomatoes is not a thing.

In the UK it's onions and sugar beet - in the Alentejo, nothing.
The Alentejo is a black hole for things left unattended/unwanted - recycling of complex items means just leaving it near the communal bins.
If it has value or can be "fixed", it's gone before you can blink, if it hasn't, then it really is rubbish.

Eating roadkill in the Alentejo would mean a diet of cats and the occasional dog. Other forms of protein would be so rare as not to count.

Jesus, every thread on this site becomes bloody insufferable as soon as someone starts talking about either food, or appliances.
I have to disagree with you here! Talking about food is the next best thing to actually tasting it. There are so many threads on here that end up being juvenile pissing matches ... "You obviously don't understand ..." being a common retort. Or, Boiler shows up and throws out some utterly random useless link that everyone then chases down rabbit holes for 5 pages ... or DC Coop reminds us why we never liked visiting our grumpy old grandad ... give me food foreplay any day!

The problem with talking about food is that it's so subjective it gets kind of pointless after a while.

People actually click on Boiler's links though?

Occasionally ... about 1 in 20 of Boiler's links are interesting. The one about Seattle homeless was interesting, as was a link about possible financial troubles. I often think Boiler is some college graduate's AI project; let's see if we can create a 'bot' that posts 'relevant' stuff in threads. They clearly did a shit job, with 95% failure rate (they would never be hired by Cambridge Analytica, or whatever that became), but once in a while they get it right, and thus they soldier on with their experiment ... to the detriment of everyone else. I'd be quite fascinated to learn what goes on inside Boiler's head, should that head be real ...

As for food - just reading (eg) Mac's cooking exploits makes me salivate and want to eat exactly what he's talking about. I absolutely love food, but I'm simply too lazy to bother cooking it myself so I tend to eat out for my kicks or, live vicariously through these posts of others ... .

If the shrimp wasn't run over by a car, it is of no interest in this thread.
