This recipe is from "The Complete Greek Cookbook" by Theresa Karas Yianilos
 
Today, The camel is a gastronomical oddity to the western world. Greeks actually no longer consider it to be edible, but in ancient times camel meat was served to royalty. Aristophenes mentions camel meat in his writings, and Aristotle praised it as being very tasty.

Good Lord! can you believe I found a picture of a roast camel? LOL
 
 
Allow 1 pound of meat per person, hump, stomach or feet
 
Marinade:
1 cup olive oil
juice of two lemons
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp oregano
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp coriander
 
Mix marinade and pour over camel...marinate for 4 hours, turning occasionally.
Bake for 2-3 hours at 325° F, or allow 30 minutes per pound.

Outstanding addition to the site, Dave, wonderfully perfect example as Ron said about what this is all about! Even if we don't make it, stuff like this may inspire someone to get creative. As well, all our modern dishes came from somewhere, some derivation, and each has an interesting background to go with it.

Great post, and impressive picture, at the very least. Wow. Don't think it would fit in our oven, though........

In a cookbook called International Cuisine, presented by California Home Economics Teachers, 1983 (ISBN 0-89626-051-8), you will find:

Stuffed Camel

1 whole camel, medium size
1 whole lamb, large size
20 whole chickens, medium size
60 eggs
12 kilos rice
2 kilos pine nuts
2 kilos almonds
1 kilo pistachio nuts
110 gallons water
5 pounds black pepper
Salt to taste

Skin, trim and clean camel (once you get over the hump), lamb and chicken. Boil until tender. Cook rice until fluffy. Fry nuts until brown and mix with rice. Hard boil eggs and peel. Stuff cooked chickens with hard boiled eggs and rice. Stuff the cooked lamb with stuffed chickens. Add more rice. Stuff the camel with the stuffed lamb and add rest of rice. Broil over large charcoal pit until brown. Spread any remaining rice on large tray and place camel on top of rice. Decorate with boiled eggs and nuts. Serves friendly crowd of 80-100.
