Curry Goat Chef Notes: 
The curry goat dish is made with fresh goat meat from a farm in Olympia, WA.  It was butchered by Natalie's good friend and Jamaican native Tevin Campbell who owns a food truck called Jerk N Tingz in Olympia, WA. The goat is seasoned and marinated overnight in a curry blend of turmeric, allspice, paprika, cardamom, garlic, fenugreek, black pepper, along with thyme, onions, and scallions. It is then prepared using the braising technique, where it is cooked to a low simmer until the meat is tender and soaking in its own delicious gravy.

The curry goat will be served with coconut rice and peas, a fresh Caribbean style cabbage slaw and fried sweet plantains. Suggested Cider Pairing: Enjoy the heat of Finnriver's Habanero Cider with this flavorful dish, or try our Tideline for a milder pairing.

A little history:
Curry goat is Jamaica's most popular dish. While the origins of curry goat is unknown, it is assumed that the East Indians who came to the island as indentured workers from 1842 onwards first used this method to produce a delish dish out of what was considered by some a rather inferior meat.
