Long queues at supermarkets and food shops. Half-empty shelves. Only a few products in refrigerators. When re-stocked, the items in much demand at our supermarkets are regularly seen to be the now infamous toilet paper, followed by essential foods such as meat, milk, eggs, bread, canned goods and pasta.Such scenes have been witnessed in several shops across Europe, and indeed the world. And many EU citizens born after the mid-1950s are not used to such experiences. But luckily - thanks to the many Food Heroes working against the clock throughout the entire food supply chain - food security should be the least of our worries in Europe in the face of this COVID-19 pandemic.
Buy it, cook it, taste it, enjoy it. Lamb and goat, apart from being a particularly sustainable meat, are healthy. And it can be cooked in different ways. It doesn’t have to be a special holiday to eat lamb. The day of the lamb is every day that we enjoy this meat. But taking advantage of the fact that we have been confined at home and that now we can go out, if we cannot taste this meat outside, we do it inside. In our living room, in our kitchen, on our terrace or on our balcony. Why not? There is always a time and place to enjoy lamb meat.
Although grilled, this delicacy is best enjoyed. Plan your portion well so that there is no meat left over. If the lamb has bone, it will take about 500 grams per adult and about 250 grams per child. No one will be hungry!
Imagine the verbena de San Juan: this year with friends, family and something easy to prepare and that children will surely love, for example breaded chops, 20 minutes and that’s it:
12 suckling baby goats
- Bread crumbs
- 1 large potato
- Olive oil
- Pepper to taste
Or, Roast Churrasquito with Padrón pepper, 40 minutes, and eat:
- 900g marinated lamb churrasquitos
- 250g of Padrón peppers
- Olive oil
This San Joan we celebrate Lamb Day by putting everything on the grill. This San Joan celebrates life with yours. Celebrate with lamb and goat.
