MegX – The Personal Chef!
In my journey as a chef and provider of solutions to affairs that involve cooking on a grand or small scale, I have always been stopped and asked by people outside my race and cultural background about the type of foods we African’s eat. The most curiosity is always around Jollof Rice, how it is prepared and what makes it differ from Nation to Nation ….My blog explains some of the reasons why this could be the case.
After a recent goat-meat taster pop-up session organised by Bode’s Place, I was plagued with people’s curiosity around ‘curried goat’! Of course this is plain old ‘goat-meat’ to us, but globally the ‘goat-meat’ is so much more of a delicacy and people of different race and cultures cook this animal in various different ways….
Lets start at the very top … Billy here has kindly agreed to be my model ….
Lets start with the Goat-Head! which looks a bit like the snap-shot of Billy my friend.
There are quite a number recipes that use this part of the goat to prepare delicious rustic dishes, some of the more popular ones are:
- Goat Head Curry
- Goat Head Pepper soup
The Goat’s Skin ………this is one of the preferred part of the Goat for me, and for many other Africans and it is very versatile to cook.
You cold either buy your goat with the skin on or off, or you could just use the skin on it’s own to cook dishes such as:
- Peppered fried goat meat.
- Goat Meat pepper-soup.
Other Wild Goat Meat Parts, consist of the parts such as Neck, Shoulder, Ribs, Loins, leg, Hind-Shank, Flank, Breast and Fore-shank
Goat meat is one of the easiest meats to cook. It is quite tender, juicy and has a unique flavour that some might need to develop a taste for … but all in all these goats parts can be grilled, fried, smoked, barbecued, Stewed, braised or roasted to produce mouth watering dishes ……
