Camel Meat Fast Becoming a RarityTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
This is going to have many of you worrying about your favorite camel recipe - if it's becoming harder to find in Saudi restaurants, just imagine how hard it will be to find it at your local supermarket(if you ever looked for it) here in the U.S.
Our friend John Burgess writes that it appears that one of the traditional foods of Arabia is dropping in popularity. He says that when he was there, his local supermarket carried camel meat, right next to the lamb and beef, taking the space that in the US would be occupied by pork. But according to the writer of the source article, camel meat doesn't really work well iln things like curries, although cooked plainly-roasted, grilled, broiled-it's very tasty.
I'll be sure to remember that next time I want camel for dinner. So far my only experience with a camel was many years ago in the old city in Jerusalem, where I was bit by a camel(I paid to ride one) - I never really thought of biting back or eating one.
