During the Vietnam War I was introduced to dog,cat,and snake. All of them are to lean for my taste. I love escargo and frog legs. Way better than chicken. I think Muskrat and Beaver are terrific.

My husbands family is Greek and so I've been lucky enough to visit there three times now. We still own the house that his mom was born in... last time we went to visit we walked into the neighbors kitchen and sitting on the cupboard were two goat heads, skinned but, the eyes and toung were still attached. Stella, our Greek yaya made soup out of it. She added the ears and the brain too. Paulie and I each tried one bite but, that was about all that we could handle. ICK!! Stella and her two girls are wonderful cooks and everything else we've ever eaten at any their houses was perfect.. but, this was just horrid.

That being said.. I love the rest of the goat meat. Lamb and goat heart is really good if cooked properly.

This sounds great! Thanks for posting the recipe.

I've never seen snails for sale thought.. Might just have to take a trip to France to pick up a few dozen. Any one want to join me?

I was a bit off in my translation, Wasabi, but it's essentially the same thing!

I think "strange" has to be relative to what you grew up eating. I never thought frog's legs, fried rattlesnake, tongue, brains, pigs feet were strange. Escargot was just an adventure. But, pdswife1 did remind me of my most "exotic" food experience .... grilled goat's eyeball, lung, and warm raw liver.

I'll pass on dog, cat, and rat for as long as possible ...
