Ahead of this month's #Goatober campaign, I visited Lizzie Dyer of Cotswold Kid Meat, where we will be sourcing our kid goat meat. Lizzie is one of the UK’s few farmers who raises her billy kids free range and pasture fed. You can read more about putting kid goat on the menu in my recent post.
I was lucky to get my hands on a rack of kid from Lizzie to start experimenting with cooking with kid meat ahead of the campaign. We made a moroccan inspired dinner that confirmed to me what I keep hearing - kid goat is delicious. Unlike its adult counterpart, kid goat is mild and tender, with a sweet delicate flavour.
Together with The Salt Box, we are launching a local #Goatober campaign in Dorking, Surrey. Find out more about what's on here.
To try kid goat at home, speak to your local butcher, contact Cotswold Kid Meat or even order through Ocado thanks to kid goat supplier Cabrito.
