Andreas Florin - For the Kids
Goat meat, often called chevon when from adults and cabrito or just kid when from young animals, is the meat of the domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus). While "goat" is usually the name for the meat found in common parlance, producers and marketers may prefer to use the French-derived word chevon (from chÃ¨vre), since market research in the United States suggests that "chevon eater" is more palatable to consumers than "goat eater". Cabrito is a word of Spanish origin for goat kid, and refers specifically to young, milk-fed goat. In the English-speaking islands of the Caribbean, and in some parts of Asia, particularly Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and India, the word âmuttonâ is often used to describe both goat and lamb meat, despite technically only referring to sheep meat.
