They say “the older you get, the wiser you are”. Translated into chicken terms, a steamer chicken offers extra nutritional value and a more concentrated meat essence in its flesh. From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, hen carries properties of “yin” which reinforces the body of pregnant women, weak and chronically ill individuals and the elderly. Old hens are especially admired in this regard, and in Asian cooking, they are often adopted in dishes with lengthy cooking processes like double-boiled soups, because time is a vital element to fully extract their nutrients and flavour.
Our Steamer lives a “long” and fruitful life of 400 days (the threshold for a hen to qualify as “old”) in our collaborators’ farms in Victoria.
Each whole steamed chicken will weigh between 1kg and 1.2kg. We always endeavour to provide the highest quality, specialty poultry products.
