Goat meat
« on: November 03, 2013, 10:57 AM »
I fancy trying my hand at a goat meat curry, anyone here have recommendations as to where I can buy it? There are a few online places but ideally it would be useful to find somewhere reasonably near Oxford. Failing that I might be tempted to weander up the Cowley Road and ask in a few of the Halal butchers shops there. Any advice gratefully received.

Sadly I don't have dining rights in any of the Oxford colleges, so I'm not able to advise, but Halal butchers in the Cowley Road would certainly seem a logical place to try.  Otherwise Renée the lovely goat farmer[1] can be found at both Gloucester Green and Wolvercote Farmers' Markets .

Is comprehension still taught at school ?  If so, is that "the lovely Renée, goat farmer extraordinaire", or "Renée, who farms lovely goats" ?!

Goat is truly a fantastic meat for curry (quite similar to mutton in flavour, but much less fat).

I get mine from a local farm, and pay anything between £65 and £100 for a whole goat (much cheaper way of buying). Might be worth doing a Google search for farms in your area that sell goat?

Failing that, maybe The Covered Market in Oxford?

Or you can always buy online (plenty of choice, but for example: http://www.goat-meat.co.uk/).

Without a doubt most halal butchers will guide you if not supply... I live in Yorkshire and it is never a problem here so just ask and I'm sure you will find it soon. Good luck its worth the effort and truly delicious, also try any west Indian take-aways or butchers for help.

Isn't what West Indians call goat (in the Curried Goat sense)  actually mutton though?  So if you asked for goat at a West Indian place it may just be mutton.

I suspect that in fact it is the opposite :  what some West Indians call "mutton" may in fact be goat, but mature goat rather than kid.

Am I the only one who thinks goat meat slells disguisting? ( sorry) ::) Or did I cook it in a wrong way?
