The quest for the GOATmeal (GOAT-meal? Goatmeal? GOATMEAL?) – formally the Greatest Meal of All Time – began in 2012, with a bit a linguistic confusion combining the GOAT, meals, and a little resonance of oatmeal.

The GOATMeal is a dish, simultaneously capturing the essence of tastiness, bestitude, and deliciousness. We maintain an important distinction between the GOATMeal and the GROAT (the greatest recipe of all time), and we occasionally highlight a recipe as the leading contender in in a sub-category of food (e.g., goat-waffle, goat-(cinnamon roll), etc).

The GOATMeal is a meal that every day, in our own way, we strive towards. This book presents the ongoing quest in our efforts to discover it.
