How difficult is it to find Lamb in Poland....apart from the major cities there's none.

Anyone/Anywhere a caterer I can order from??????????????

I only need a few legs of lamb....do you think a few lambs can do with three legs instead of four?

I work part time in the National Veterinary Research Institute here in Pulawy, and last year I mentioned to one of the professors that I miss eating lamb meat.

He phoned me the next day and said that if I came to his house he would have a surprise for me, and I went to his house the next day and he had found a 30 kilo lamb that he had just slaughtered and presented it to me saying it was a present.

After not having lamb for four years I was so happy and spent the next two months eating it.
One nervous thought occurred to me though was where he got it from, and whether it was a reject from one of the research projects that the institute does, but he reassured me that it was not.

The only region that I have seen sheep farmed intensively is as krysia says in the Zakopane region, and I have seen it on the menu of many Zakopane restaurants.

I guess if you are going to find it depending on where you located, is to try some of the butchers in the region.

My father-in-law used to farm them for the Italian market, and they used to take them at 15 to 20 kilos, but he stopped this 12 years ago, and I really don't know if this is still going on somewhere, but it's worth trying to find out.

Funnily enough....a contact has just put me in touch with a owner of an Italian restaurant in Warsaw (San lorenzo's) who can buy some in for me...........so long winded though, p.s if you do get another carcass take it to the vet....i did that with some boar three weeks ago. She checks all the hunters catches etc for comsumption

Mmmm! Ewe's milk cheese!

I keep hearing stories from someone at work whose lady friend kept a lamb as a pet. It used to live in the house and follow her round like a puppy. She went away over Christmas and left it with a nearby equestrian centre. Unfortunately the shock of real life, combined with a diet of just grass (the poor thing hadn't been weaned off bottle-feeding yet) led to it's untimely demise.

Wrong country, and there's none of it available for eating, but I just thought I'd throw that little (sad) story into the mix. A previous thread I started highlighted the unpopularity of lamb in Poland.

What did they do with the lamb at the equestrian centre..........That's one available.

Sent it for a post-mortem, followed by cremation

Cremation looks like a better word than incineration when talking about someone's pet.
Somebody was unpopular after the sad news was broken - he tried to share a lamb rogon josh with the distraught owner.

Curry......mmm. that's another subject.....a couple of good places in Warsaw...

You know i'm sure all of Poland would love curry, if force fed it for a couple of weeks.

Bring on the Indian labourers please...food will follow.

Stop spamming with things you know nothing about, McCoy! ;) ;) ;)

Lamb in Częstochowa? I'm not sure but,

Maybe contact ukpolska on this forum. He's a resourceful guy. Just ask around.

If you need one that can cook and clean the house try the Tatra region ;)

Very difficult to find lamb in Gdansk but from time to time a local shop can get it for me. It's just not very popular in Poland. I need a leg or two for dinner and curry for a party I'm having in mid April. My Polish friends tell me the only time they eat lamb is when they're at my flat.

Stand by for posts from Warsaw and Poznan.
It's not easy to find fresh lamb here. In the larger towns and cities you might be able to find some frozen lamb in the bigger supermarkets and hypermarkets. There's some in my local Makro. Not cheap.

I was very lucky to be able to buy half a freshly killed lamb a while ago from my neighbour. It had grown up about ten metres away from my gate.

Occasionally you can find some mutton at the butchers, but it's not a regular item on sale.
Good luck.

Lidl had some frozen cutlets a month or two ago. (German week?)

There's a French butcher in Warsaw who has fresh lamb. Not a lot of help for you though. Frankly Makro will be your best bet, but frozen stuff only and it is not cheap.

Le Diplomat (it's run by a Lebanese bloke who used to be a diplomat here), corner of Meksykanska and Wandy, Saska Kepa. Famed for its lamb and organic chicken. 022 616 0539 (French or Polish, and a bit of English).

Hang on a minute: I have news! Do you want the good news or the bad news?

The good news is that I've found that there's a very decent butcher in Warsaw I know who has fresh lamb and will send it via DHL to anywhere in Poland for 35 zl.

The bad news is that, and please do sit down before I tell you this, a kilo of lamb chops (bone in) is 170.90zl. No, I'm not joking. 170.90zl. Per one kilogram.

A snip at just 76.90zl/kg

Actually, that reminds me, this bloke is spoken of highly in Warsaw for his Irish sausages:

In 5 years of living in Poland i saw lamb in the shops twice. Once was in Alma's in Wroclaw and the other was a frozen product in Tescos. I didn't buy on either occasion although i did go back to Alma's on numerous occasions with the intention of buying and never saw it again.
