Today I went to the Athens Meat Market because I needed to buy "Lamb Necks", not the head, not the rest of the lamb, just the necks.Well....I had my lesson for the day!!....
|Baby Lamb Halves|
|Whole Baby Lambs|
|Older Lamb Halves.|
|Greek Butcher With Moustache|
|We Call It "Noua" Cooked In Wine, Onion, Garlic In A Pressure Cooker For 1½ Hours.|
Ninety percent of the Greeks eat the milk sucking lamb which, to in my opinion, is tasteless. I thought the neck I needed was from a baby lamb. So although I bought two baby lamb shoulders including a little neck (because that's how they would only sell it) I went ahead and bought a neck from an older lamb. In Greek the baby lamb is called "Arnï Galaktos " the older one is called "Zigouri".
The above, my friends, was just a little picture of the Athens Meat Market. I promise to show you the Athens Fish Market which is also very interesting.
Hope you like the pictures.
