In years gone by, meat was hard to
come by for the common village folk.
Since Greece does not have abundant grazing lands, cattle had
to be imported. So, the more popular, Beef and Lamb had always
been hard to get or considered expensive.
A slaughtered Lamb was meant for an Easter or Wedding Feast!
Game meats, however
were very popular.
Hare, Wild Boar & Wild Mountain Goat (Kid), all found their
places on the tables of the
Greek village homes.}
Nowadays, the Greeks mostly use Lamb, Beef and Pork. Hunting
is still a popular sport in Greece, especially in the
mountainous villages, but in these days of ecological
upheaval, the "catch" has become extremely rare.
Even here in Rhodes, we order our Wild Mountain Goat (Kid)
from the butcher who gets
it from farms that raise the animals.
