Hebrew English Poultry Chart

Chicken is the most consumed protein in Israel by far. Of course, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t enough confusion in the simplest of meats that a little help wouldn’t hurt.

I’ve prepared this chart so you can name the different types of poultry available as well as the names of the various cuts and parts.

    • WOW, THIS IS GREAT BARRY. SHOPPING IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME AND THIS WILL BE VERY USEFUL TO ME. THANKS A MIL. AND, HAVE A HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    • Indeed this is useful. Now just need to be able to read the Hebrew on the cans and packaging

  1. Are you sure about Mallard? I believe it's actually Mulard, which is a different animal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulard). I've asked in restaurants about it, and they say it's a cross-bred duck, which fits with Mulard, not Mallard.
