2nd place: The Christmas goose

For some, the Christmas meal may be a little more elaborate. Whether it is goose or duck: crispy outside and inside with a delicious filling, it is a real feast for the palate. The perfect thing about this is that while the poultry is roasting in the oven, you can take your time to make suitable side dishes such as dumplings and red cabbage.
