St. Martin's Day Goose Feast at ÉS Bisztró

In November we eat goose.

St.Martin’s Day customs and goose offers at ÉS Bisztró


Why we have goose on St.Martin’s Day?

Many European countries have had customs for St. Martin’s Day for centuries, most of them associated with goose coma and new wine.

The customs of Martin's Day are linked to the end of the year, the end of agricultural work and the approach of Advent, and to the legend that St. Martin tried to hide in a goose lodge when he wanted to be elected bishop, but the geese betrayed him with their gag.

Martin's Day is the last holiday before Christmas, so feasts, balls, and fairs were regular on this day. At such times, great eating and drinking were arranged so that there would be plenty to eat next year as well.


Have a feast with us, taste the classic Hungarian St. Martin's goose roast!
