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.

    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.
