Get Your Goat (Because It’s the Future of Meat)
Chef Alon Shaya of New Orleans’s Domenica thinks we’ll be seeing a lot more goat in our grocery stores.
We asked chefs to peek into their crystal balls and tell us what foods we’ll be talking about in the next five years. Here’s what they predicted.
Chef Alon Shaya of New Orleans’s Domenica thinks we’ll be seeing a lot more goat in our grocery stores. “Goat is the number one consumed protein in the entire world and we haven’t caught on in America just yet,” Shaya says. “We’ve been so rich as a country, we’ve raised beef and pigs and huge storehouses full of chickens. We’ve never had to eat goat. As our culinary awareness grows, goat will become part of our diet.”
If you want to get a jump on everyone else and start honing your goat cooking skills, try these three fantastic recipes:
