Well, it's popular here so they sell it, moreso around Easter, but if I give them a week or so (if they don't already have it), I can pretty much get it year round.

Same for suckling pigs (however, they are generally 8-10kg).

One Easter, I did a half of each (pig, goat, lamb), 5 hours in the smoker.

As I already said, I'm not aware they sell whole things around Zürich, except for poultry, of course. Maybe they do, but it didn't even cross my mind to ask, not having seen it in a shop, or rather a market.
We sometimes buy fresh unpasteurised milk from a farm, it might be worth asking...
Whole or split animal is the tastiest...last year we spent the Easter in CH, and bought a whole Australian (or was it from New Zealand? can't remember) lamb leg and it turned out pretty tasty, albeit judging by its size the animal was obviously more like hogget/mutton than lamb. But we prepared it pretty well, my OH enjoys cooking and he always manages to cook really well.

I prefer to cook them whole or split.

Yes, that's the best, if you want the real stuff.

But then again, you have a big family here... hungry kids, m-i-l, s-i-l etc. Hmm, I actually envy you..he he.

Re: Goat Meat

Hi,


there is a butcher in Staefa called Geren-Metzg (http://geren-metzg.ch/gallerie).


Even though they don't have goat meat on their regular selection, you can order it and they always have special offers around Easter.
















They don't sell pork.

Meat quality is good, not sure however if its worthwhile coming all the way from Zuerich.

Re: Goat Meat

Hi all. So I bought some fresh goat from Art of Food, and it came pre-cut "ragout style" in packages of approximately 800-900g. I've attached a photo here. You can't choose which part of the goat you'd prefer. The pieces definitely came from the whole goat.

I made some goat vindaloo with it, and it turned out quite well - the meat was tender after 2 hours in the oven, and it tasted pretty good too. There were definitely some pieces that were not ideal, but overall, pretty great for the cheap price (13 CHF/kg). Since this was my first try, I can't really say if the quality is consistent or not.

They also sell ground goat. Sometimes they have pieces and ground goat frozen as well. It's good to call in advance for availability, as it is a small set up... also, sometimes it arrives on Thursdays and sometimes on Fridays.

This is similar to what I buy from the Aggarwal store in Zürich and it makes great curries. You can buy it either on the bone or boneless. I prefer on the bone.

Re: Goat Meat

I saw whole goat legs ("Gitzi Gigot") at Lidl near Luchswiesen today for ~50 CHF/kg, as well as some pieces. The legs were small, probably from baby goats.

Also, Art of Food sells not only mixed pieces ("Ragout") and ground goat, but also rib chops that are packaged separately. All at 13 CHF/kg.
