    I can't seem to find any information on this - its a Spanish breed of goose that supposedly tastes like pork. Anyone heard of it?

    Muscovies - which are a SOuth American bird - are said to taste more like veal. Is that it?

    Seems like a strange concept to me. Maybe it is the diet? Poultry meat is so different from mammal meat that it is hard to imagine a goose tasting like pork.

    To me, rabbit tastes like the eye of a pork loin, if you get good white pork. If you want pork, you might try raising rabbits.

    I know, but it was on one of the Jewish sites that the Chief Rabbi of Israel declared it kosher for importation to Israel.
    I do know there is kosher goose or duck proscuitto. I, too, suspect it's in what they're fed.

    Chief Rabbi of Israel wouldn't have any way to know whether it tastes like pork, or not.

    I've heard of Muscovy ducks being compared to veal but I haven't had veal in years so I don't recall.
    Muscovy meat is less greasy than other breeds of ducks and is even more lean than turkey.
