All I know is that I grew up in an area of England where sheep were more
common than cattle, and we ate lamb a LOT. I became very accustomed to the
flavour, so I never think of it as anything other than delicious. When we
moved to Canada the discovery that many people here had never even TRIED it
came as a total shock. Even now we live in a rural area I still find many
people who have never eaten it, and it has a reputation as "strong" tasting.
To me it's comfort food, reminds me of childhood. It's all to do with what
you are used to.
Let your ideas grow and worry not about what will
change, for change is the only constant in the universe.

Regarding lamb chops - do those of you who regularly enjoy eating lamb
find that a sheep fed only grass/hay tastes differently than one whose
diet is supplemented with grain? Which taste is preferable - grain fed
or grass/hay fed? We love venison - and some of you have stated your
lamb tastes like venison -- and that has not been the case for us.
However, we have eaten venison from areas where the deer would have had
alot of access to corn fields (much to the farmer's dismay!!!) and from
moutainous areas where there is less agriculture - although I suppose
deer would then eat alot of acorns, etc., so I suppose venison could vary
in flavor. My family has found lamb so disgusting that even though I
haven't served lamb for several yrs. my 18 year old daughter still asks
before she eats whether it is lamb - this might be an insurmountable
obstacle but I'm still trying!!!!
