I didn't know that camel milk was used for cheese. Is it any good?

Might be all right, I suppose. I guess at some point, someone though the same about the meat of cows, before we tried it and realised that it is the best thing since we started eating the meat of chickens

For some unknown reason it just struck me as odd. If it's like Kangaroo I'll take a pass, if it's like bacon ....

I honestly had no idea until today that camels were used as anything other than beasts of burden. The more you know ...

Thanks on the heads up on kangaroo, by the way.

I don't know yet. He has a heard of 20 females plus one lucky male (although with a gestation period of 20 months, maybe not so lucky), and either the camels don't start lactating till they give birth (my namesake was the second born, the first -- named Mozart -- was born four days earlier: all the females are pregnant), or if they have he has decided not to take any milk for the moment. I'll keep you advised -- he generally doesn't press his cheeses, so they're ready for consumption fairly soon after he starts making them.

Nice one. Yeah, let us know it'd be interesting to see how it turns out.

If it's up to the standard of his goats cheese, then it'll be excellent. All those cheeses pictured in the post with my namesake are goats cheese, and the range of flavours and textures is impressive (especially so given they're all unpressed). Camel's milk is highly nutritious, and the Gulf Arabs drink it to increase their potency, allegedly; available in some supermarkets in UAE, and probably elsewhere in the region.

Yep, I'll keep you posted. D

I like kangaroo meat, I seem to remember that it was on the lines of venison or am I getting it mixed up with ostrich . The thought of eating camel just seems wrong, in the same way I feel about eating goat. Totally irrational I know. I believe that goat is supposed to be delicious but for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me.

Had goat at the cheesemaker's (it's a farm / restaurant / fromagerie / place to stay), slow-cooked then finished off on the BBQ: soft and succulent, with a slightly stronger taste than lamb, but only just. Would probably have been hard pressed to tell it wasn't lamb if I hadn't known... My only reservation was that the goat (kid?) was only 4 (or was it 6?) months old: didn't seem quite right.
