comfort for lambs & chicks

‘kebab’ pizza with garlic-‘yogurt’sauce and plant-cheese

The traditional animal used for making kebab meat is lamb or mutton, but chicken has also become a very popular kebab-base. The consumption of sheep meat is not nearly as popular in the global north’s industrialised countries as other animal meats, yet lamb meat is still worth mentioning as it’s consumption has a significant place in many cultures around the world. Now chicken has taken over as the most popular meat source across the globe, with an enormous increase in production in the past 50 years, it is safe to say that chicken is a common base of various comfort food classics around the world. The kebab pizza is a classic Swedish cross-cultural fast food mash-up, both indulgent and convenient! ︎
