Help us welcome Josh to the Goose Gang

Help us welcome Josh to the Smoking Goose sales team! Which meat treat is his favorite? The City Ham or Jowl Bacon he fries up before cycling to work are contenders, but a national award winner claims the top slot.

Help us welcome Josh to the Smoking Goose sales team! Which meat treat is his favorite? The City Ham or Jowl Bacon he fries up before cycling to work are contenders, but a national award winner claims the top slot.

Josh knows great food makes for a great party. Working as a chef in Indianapolis before joining the staff at our retail market, Josh used Smoking Goose meat treats to create dishes for the menu and special events at Goose the Market. Strangers gathered there at communal tables, but with Josh's spirit and his cooking, those strangers left as friends...full, happy friends.

Cooking, creating pairings, and engaging guests weren't just Josh's day job. Ask him about the themed Halloween and holiday parties that are a tradition with his family. And there's a new chair at the table for this year's shindigs. He and his wife Shannon are raising their son Maverick in excellent taste.

With so much experience serving and cooking with Smoking Goose meat treats, Josh has to think hard about his favorite. City Ham and Jowl Bacon are contenders, "But Culatello really stands out," he says about this 2019 Good Food Award winner. "The preparation and curing are unique and develop the flavors I love.”

Look for him cycling the streets of Indy when he's not helping our coast-to-coast partners bring in Smoking Goose products as the newest member of our sales team. Welcome, Josh!

Introducing Lindsay

Lindsay.jpg

Her work days were filled with English grammar lessons and corralling kiddos, but her days off were filled by the pages of Osterie & Locande d'Italia, Slow Food's guide to traditional restaurants all over the boot. Lindsay set out from her job in Torino to discover Italy's bubbling craft beer scene and the unique dishes of each region including the carne crudo that became a favorite dish of this ex-vegetarian.

After a year, she was back in Indy and working with nonprofits on energy efficiency and health care issues at the Statehouse. As her work transitioned from lobbying to sales, Lindsay kept Italy close by with trips to Goose the Market's cellar Enoteca and picnics along Indy's White River bike path. "Some snacks and a little vino--it's like being back in Italy," she remembers. 

Those food memories are part of what inspired Lindsay to join the Goose Gang. It's about flavor but the story only starts there. Working with small family farms who raise their animals as nature intended means Smoking Goose's recipes start with sustainability and responsibility. We agree with Lindsay: those are ingredients are in extremely good taste.

So what's in the picnic basket on the back of her bike? "Definitely Mortadella," Lindsay shares. "It's the Smoking Goose product that surprised me the most. It's simple but complex at the same time. That Cinnamon...it's not sweet but still adds a sweet profile," she muses. And after a long ride, Guanciale is what she craves...especially as a topping on the new pizza flatbreads of Oca's menu.

As part of her work with our distribution partners, she'll be hitting the road in 2018 for some countrywide visits. Help us welcome Lindsay!

Introducing Emily

This Long Island gal misses open water here in land-locked Indianapolis, but it's the Hoosier spirit (and some delicious meals) that ultimately beats the Big Apple to keep her here.

As a kiddo in New York, Emily's parents brought her along for reservations at Manhattan restaurants. "I remember towering charcuterie stands at the old-school French places, and we'd always get duck with plum then crepes for dessert," she says about the early days that inspired her interest in good food. 

The journalism school at Indiana University first tempted her away from New York, and after graduation, she stayed in Bloomington. "I met people that I loved here," Emily says, and Indiana's blossoming food scene only sweetened the deal. When she's out to eat, steamed mussels with chorizo catch her attention while at home in the kitchen, the folks Emily loves are also lucky to tuck into her seared pork chops with mushrooms, wine, and shallots. "I pat the pork chops dry -- it's the key to getting that delicious sear."

Emily says she did a happy dance the first time she tasted Smoking Goose's Duck Prosciutto, and chances are good that was no simple two-step. Performing on stage in her free time has earned Emily the associate producer position for a local troop. "There's nothing like the sound of applause," she muses.

The stage and the kitchen may vie for her free time, but her work time spans years with both independent groceries and large-scale specialty food merchants. Emily brings an insider's perspective as she works with Smoking Goose's grocery partners. Ask her for more secets to searing those perfect pork chops and help us welcome Emily to the Goose Gang!
