Mexican inspired goat feast
Mexican inspired restaurant Corazón in Soho will launch the first of their one-off producer led dinners aimed at celebrating their love and appreciation for independent and innovative UK producers.
On Wednesday 31 January, chef and co-founder Paul Daniel will team up with James Whetlor of Cabrito, the award-winning kid goat supplier and specialist. As an ex-chef, James founded Cabrito in 2012, feeling he should do something about the waste of male billy goats by the dairy industry – he thought that there had to be a better solution than euthanizing them as a by-product at a few hours old. Calling on his 10 years’ of chef experience and contacts, James set up Cabrito Goat Meat and began working with goat dairies to supply some London’s most celebrated restaurants.
This ticketed event, priced at £35pp, will include an introduction to Cabrito by founder James, followed by a 3-course Mexican inspired menu designed to celebrate the meat’s unique and complex flavour profiles, from Corazón’s Paul Daniel.
Feast style menu for the evening:
‘Corazon’ Margarita or Michelada
Cabrito Taco: BBQ Goat Leg, Avocado Leaves, Roasting Juices, Guacamole, Habanero Pepper Salsa
Goat Birria: Shoulder of Goat Stew spiced with Housemade Adobo, Guajillo, Pasilla & Ancho Chiles, Mexican Chocolate, Cumin. Served with Warm Tortillas, Chopped Onions & Tomatillo Salsa
Mexican Cinnamon Doughnuts and Cajeta (Goats Milk Caramel)
Chef and Co-founder Paul Daniel comments: "Our kitchen at Corazón is committed to experimentation and taking Mexican food a few steps forward – always a little better, a little different. We use the best quality ingredients, all in-house prepped, of course – and we also love to get the diner comfortably out of their comfort zone, with the odd authentically adventurous dish. Goat meat may not be seen as the norm in the UK, but in fact eating goat is very popular in Mexico and South Texas. The meat lends itself very well to the slow cooking we do so much of as it retains its moisture so beautifully. We teamed up with Cabrito for this one-off collaboration to really showcase just how delicious eating goat can be – what a perfect way to start what we hope to be many partnerships with some of the UK’s most celebrated producers!"
