At different ages, different terms are used.
In its first year, the sheep is called a lamb, and its meat is likewise named lamb.
Great for this Brazilian Coffee-Crusted Lamb Recipe, the meat of a growing sheep older than a first-year is called hogget; outside the US and Canada, this is also a word for the living creature.
The meat of the adult lamb is mutton, a word only used for the flesh, not the animal.
Meat from sheep is present in many cultures all over the world.
The first time I ate lamb in my life was around 1972 near San Francisco in an afternoon barbeque party on the beach. My mother and I were invited by some folk from Stanford University, where some Brazilian friends were studying in a scholarship.
That was the best lamb I have eaten in my whole life. The cook seasoned it with herbs and ocean water.
The above recipe was passed on to my family by a Syrian lady that used to live two blocks from our home in the 60’s, in São Paulo City.
