Boer Bok is a hit at The Ivy Inn.......

Boer Bok was on the menu at Ivy Inn's "Get To Know Your Local Farmer Spring Equinox Dinner" last Saturday night. It was a special tasting dinner featuring food from local farms.
Our Boer Bok was served as a Katskiaki (Greek word for goat) gyro canape. Aren't you glad we chose the name Boer Bok for our goat meat instead of Boer Katsikaki?  I would never be able to spell or say it right!  We heard that it was quite a hit and will be served as an appetizer course next week.   
You can read Chef Angelo's blog about the dinner and see more pictures of the meat being prepared on his website.  Here is the link You are what you eat!  The dinner was also covered by Rowena Morrel and will be in the April edition of "In The Kitchen" magazine.
PS. We are preparing and serving Boer Bok gyros for our family Easter meal. Can't wait. Yum!
