Goat head, also known as “chevon head,” is a popular delicacy in many cultures around the world. While it may seem intimidating to cook, it’s actually quite simple and delicious. Here’s a recipe for cooking a goat head that you can try at home.


  • 1 goat head
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper (optional)
  • Water


  1. Clean the goat head thoroughly by removing the eyes, ears, and hair. Rinse it with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and cook until softened, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the curry powder, thyme, salt, black pepper, and paprika to the pot and stir well to combine.
  4. If you like spicy food, add the scotch bonnet pepper to the pot. Be careful not to touch your face or eyes while handling it, as it can be very spicy.
  5. Add the goat head to the pot and pour enough water to cover it. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 2-3 hours or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.
  6. Once the goat head is cooked, remove it from the pot and let it cool slightly. Use a knife to separate the meat from the bones, discarding any bones or other parts you don’t want to eat.
  7. Serve the goat head meat with rice and vegetables, or in a sandwich with bread and condiments of your choice.
