Pamora Farm's organic free-range chicken and eggs have been added to the shop. This brings us closer to the goal of Gerald.ph as your one-stop shop for healthy, quality food.
Free-range chickens and eggs offer health benefits as well as a better-tasting product. These chickens are also able to have access to sunlight and eat in a natural environment.
Additional benefits of free-range chicken include:
- Free-range chickens are believed to have higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins A and E.
- Free-range chickens help the landscape of a farm where they are part of a symbiotic ecosystem.
- Movement, sunlight, and fresh air change the product (and taste) of the chickens.
- Free-range chickens are believed to have less saturated fat and cholesterol
- Free-range chickens and eggs have seven times more beta carotene.

Ingredients
For the rice
250 g rice
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 chili (crushed)
Salt
For the coquelet
2 Pamora spring chickens
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons chives (minced)
Salt & pepper to taste
Directions
Pour 1.5 liters of water in a casserole. Add curry powder and salt, then the rice. Let boil until rice is cooked.
Drain the rice in a strainer and then add the crushed chili.
Preheat the oven to about 210 °C (410 °F).
Mix the vegetable oil, minced garlic, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Pour this sauce mixture in a large ovenproof casserole. Add the spring chickens and coat it all over with the sauce. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, continually brushing the sauce on the chicken from time to time. 5 minutes before the chicken is done, put the rice in the oven to reheat.
To serve: transfer the rice onto a large serving platter and place the cooked spring chickens on top. Coat with the rest of the sauce and chicken juices. Sprinkle with minced chives.
Bon appétit!

Ingredients
4 pieces classic fennel sausage
1 head of garlic, slivered
1 cup mixed forest mushrooms
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper to taste
Directions
Cut the sausages into 1-inch round slices. Heat olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic until lightly brown, and add the sausages until browned, about 5-10 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until the water from the mushrooms evaporates. Serve immediately.
If you prefer to enjoy your sausages the simple way: Cook with a bit of olive oil on low-medium heat covered. Turn every 1-2 mins to brown evenly and cook for 10-12 mins. Let rest for a minute after cooking et voilà you have a succulent fresh sausage before you.
