The chefs are excited to have a new and different product to work with. "Amazing" was the term conveyed to us regarding the introductory dish prepared at Zynodoa. You may wonder about our application of the term "Boer Bok". We use the original and correct term for our South African Boer Goats which is Boer Bok. This is the Dutch term used by the South African farmers that literally means "Farmers Goat". Not only is this the correct term for our genetics, it is also helpful deflecting the negative connotations of "goat". Those negatives are NOT representative of quality Boer Bok. Well there is one exception to that. As much as we wish it were otherwise, we do confess that male Boer Bok during breeding season do look a lot like all male goats in breeding season.
