I'm gonna do this one. Probably use lamb, though.

Awesome.

Make sure you use scotch bonnets not the habaneros though. If you can get them. Totally different flavour.

And it's called curried goat not goat curry. Unless you want people to take the piss out of you when you order it hey Nills?

Have rice and peas with it.

The peas are actually red or black beans, but it's good.

Ha, I reckon that's where quite a few peoples' first experience of eating goat was.

do you mean goat-goat, i.e. adult goat?

I reckon kid instead should be not maybe everyday, but a popular enough meat that any people would have eaten it 2 or 3 times every year

I myself have only eaten adult goat meat once in my life, after forty. Interesting, but I definitely prefer to eat kid

Never eaten Kid before, bet it's lovely. I'm sure you could end up on some sort of register for that kind of thing though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goat_meat
Cabrito is specifically goat kid, a regional specialty especially common in Latin cuisines such as Mexican, Brazilian, and Argentine, and is usually slow roasted. Southern Italian and Greek cuisines are also both known for serving roast goat in celebration of Easter

oh, well, I didn't realise it was alien to anglo-saxon populations

BTW, for Easter celebrations as fas as I can tell it's exclusively lamb or kid meat.
Saying they serve "roast goat" is just like saying they eat mutton or sheep meat instead of lamb

West Indian, middle eastern and Asian (English definition, not US) communities in the UK eat tons of goat and probably kids too.

the french wiki is a bit more precise and detailed

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viande_de_ch%C3%A8vre
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viande_de_ch%C3%A8vre#La_viande_de_chevreau
Dans les pays occidentaux où les animaux adultes ne sont pas appréciés de la même façon, et notamment en Europe où la production de cette viande reste marginale, l'élevage concerne essentiellement la production de jeunes sujets, les chevreaux, chèvres juvéniles sous-produits de l'élevage laitier.


"In the western countries, where adult animals are not appreciated the same way, and specifically in Europe where production of such meat [adult goat] stays marginal, goat-breeding is essentially oriented to young animals, that is kids, i.e. "juvenile goats" as by-products of milk-farming"
(I hope I got it right)

Ok, I bite. What's the difference?

Funko

In the UK it means people from in and around the Indian sub continent, in the US it more typically means people from the far east, Japan, China and surrounding areas.

Funko

Neither of which is particularly accurate as a term.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they lump people from the Indian sub-continent in with that?

Not so much I don't think.

This thread certainly ended up with a fair bunch of esoteric posts. Not bad for a curry thread.
