Goat meat is reckoned to be the leanest and healthiest meat even less fat than skinned chicken breast. I have recently tried to make curried goat. Each time I have cooked it I have had to skim the fat off the top. It seems to me to be even fattier than lamb. Am I doing something wrong?  I trim all of the visible fat off first of which there is quite a lot. Am I buying the wrong breed of goat meat? Any advice will be much appreciated. many thanks - Richard

Hello Richard

I have never cooked/eaten goat - seems like I should!

I think your best bet would be to contact a breeder/supplier and discuss the best way forward - I've been reading about a few places, like this one: where they farm the goats and sell the meat from their own herd. 

Good luck with your searching - perhaps you could come back and enlighten us when you discover the best meat, etc.
