What a better way to try something new than by grilling up an exotic meat! The first question you might ask is, well, how do I cook (insert exotic meat here)? Well, it’s a lot easier than you would imagine. We have found a terrific website which grows their own meats, and provides cooking intructions and tips for them. These Exotic Meats and Game are found at Fossil Farms. One of the best parts about the meats from fossil farms is that they are organic. These meats naturally taste better since the animals were treated better in life, and not fed hormones. Aside for that, its just healthier. One of the easiest ways to taste this difference is to eat a piece of grass fed organic beef, and compare that to a piece of normal beef from a supermarket. I guarantee you will like the organic one better.
We will blog about each of these seperately but for now, here is a temporary list of meats we have acquired recipes for and information on where to procure them.
Alligator, Antelope, Berkshire Pork, Grass Fed Beef, Buffalo, Burgers – Gourmet, Burgers – Gourmet (Sliders & Mini), Charcuterie, Duck – Long Island, Duck – Mulard, Duck – Muscovy, Elk, Emu, Foie Gras, Guinea Hens, Kangaroo, Kobe Beef, Lamb – American, Lamb – Australian, Lamb – New Zealand, Ostrich, Partridge, Pate, Mousse & Terrine, Pheasant, Piedmontese Beef, Poussin, Quail, Rabbit, Rattlesnake, Ravioli – Chateau Royal, Sausage – Chateau Royal, Squab, Turkey – All Natural, Turkey – Heritage Breed, Turtle, Venison, Wild Boar, Wild Scottish Game Birds, Yak (Himalayan Beef).
Out of that entire list, I have personally tried the Alligator, Grass Fed Beef, Buffalo, all the ducks, Elk, Foie Gras, Kangaroo, Kobe Beef, Ostrich, Quail, Rabbit, Venison, and the Boar. I now order these whenever I see them on a menu as a result. Most of the game animals taste similar in a lot of ways to beef, however they are far more tender. My favorite on the list is the Kobe Beef. This beef is specially made on an island in Japan. The cows are treated in a special way, and the meat is perhaps the most delicate and delicious that you will ever eat. You definately need to check that out first.
