Alpaca the new wonder meat? They are farming them 30 minutes from my fishing shack. See them from car window on the drive up & back,didnt occur to me to eat one until now.On a couple of menu,s in town. After 3 seasons the fleece quality declines a bit so so there s now a very small meat trade. Curiousity got the better of me after it was on the menu at the very hip Hungry Duck restaurant in Berry.Bride gave me the "eat that some other time big guy look" so I dont know what it tastes like.
Getting a boned leg shortly. Not cheap. Any suggestions.Very lean apparently.Thinking a sort of a wet rub deal with some Peruvian chilli ,cumin,coriander,cilantro,parsley,garlic ,lime,cbp,onion .Smoke it over a pan of veal? stock,maybe some malbec red wine very South American .
I will post photos as soon as its delivered.
