unexpected bonussince lamb was about only meat dad a and mom could afford back then... in bermondsy i got to like it. but in canada its considered on rung up from dog food by avearage canadian mutton they call usuealy fol;;lowed by a a yuck so to notice how relatively cheap it is here in f rance was pleasantly surprised. just cooked up a grand lamb shoulder i paid 14 euros that back home would have s et me back at least 40 bucks. took me back to the 40s sunday roast baked spuds etc. mint sauce. not much but i enjoyed it imagine lamb sanswiches in my not to distant future as my kids a re canadian through and through my fault i admit , since beef is less than a quarter the price o lamb.,.

4Ease up guys!
Papageorge was on the forum for quite a while asking questions about France, etc. so he's following up with his reports on what he's experiencing while visiting his daughter.
We give advice (lots of people ask about food, what to eat, what's available where, etc) and we ask for feedback...he's giving his take on French lamb, and how affordable it is compared to Canada.
I would also like to point out that chances are he's not accustomed to the French keyboard and is having difficulty expressing himself - I know the first couple trips it drove me crazy.....Q for A and all those keys that have 3 symbols...
I love lamb but had difficulty finding inexpensive cuts...but with Easter, lamb will be more popular and probably on sale.
Papageorge, are you finding any vegetables in the local markets that you don't have in Canada?
And for the record #4, horsemeat is only delicious if you're used to it. And when I've seen it in the markets (E LeClerc, Carre Four, etc) it wasn't inexpensive. It is definitely an acquired taste. I had some one time, didn't know what it was, but first taste and I knew it wasn't beef, lamb, goat or venisorn, which left horse. Which is what I did, left it on the plate.
Until the links to posters previous posts are available, unless we have specific memories of particular posters (as I do with papageorge and the woman who has been posting in CAPS), let's be generous, not critical, especially newer posters...

10Yeah, it started on W Europe and the snarky comments were edited out before it was moved here.

12I have to agree wtih sfgirl42 on French keyboards. The first few times I used one drove me insane!
My mom used to always make lamb shanks with mint jelly. While I liked the jelly I wasn't all that fond of the lamb. The lamb she got was a bit gaming tasting. Since then, I've had assorted different lamb dishes and I really like it, especially when made Middle Eastern or Moroccan style. My husband used to hate lamb but he will now enjoy and occasional Lamb Kefta.
I think you mean Dyslexic, fieldgate, or is that a different way to spell it I don't know about?
