What Can Be Found At the Kazakh Fair?

Posted on October 18, 2012 by team

You are about to visit a fair in Almaty, Kazakhstan. We are not sure if you get hungry after seeing this, but for people fairs held from time to time is a nice opportunity to buy food cheaper than usual. That day a lot of meat was offered for sale.

Everything was starting quite tritely: from onions, potatoes and cabbage. It’s quite ordinary for October. But then let’s turn out the corner…

Here is what we can find there… A lot of mutton!

    Sorry but Australian eats 122,7 kg per capita (average), Kazkh only 67,54. But horsemeat is my favourite too.

    I don’t even want to know what they do with the mutton when no one else is around…

    I can’t see any carbs here, do the Kazakhs also make bread?

    In western cultures the idea of eating horse meat is still disliked. The horses were considered too useful to be eaten, so eating them was usually the last resort during famines.

      Nope, it’s not disliked in “western cultures” although perhaps in some of them it is. Horse meat is commonly eaten in the Nordic countries, especially in Iceland.

      No, even in Germany you have specialized horse butchers (so called “Pferdemetzger”). I ate horse sausages and horse filet, which was the best meat I ever ate in my entire life. It tasted like the finest beef, just better! Although I actually like horses too, but sometimes a horse is too old to be used and then its time has come.

    I grew up on a farm so these pics only made me hungry.

    Also, I learned something today: I googled Mutton and it was worth it.

    Thank you again, ER.
