It is generally considered that the young of any species tend to
provide the most tender meat, and suitable for a variety of cooking
methods.  In one source (1729, and thus OOP), we read that "a young
healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious,
nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or
boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee
or a ragout."
