Oh Kayelle, I can't wait to read every word!

I so want to travel more, to more exotic places! It will happen some day!

I had to laugh about the Last Supper and the pig instead of a fish. Don't they know Jesus was Jewish? Glad to have you back. But I am mad at you because you didn't take me with you. But I will forgive you.

Addie, that's not pig on the plate of the Last Supper, it's Guinea Pig called Cuy in Peru. It's a common food on every table there and raised for consumption but not something our group willing to try. They're usually served whole.

I'm curious who here would be willing to eat a roasted Cuy?

I'd be game (no pun intended). Evidently it tastes a lot like rabbit and many people eat rabbit in the US.

Just don't feed me your pet guinea pig!

It's a rodent. I do not eat rodents.

Welcome back and thanks for the gourmet tour.

Of course I would eat roasted guinea pig, if it is a common food on every table. But I was the only one who tried the haggis on one tour.

I was telling Spike about it and I spelled it for him. Neither one of us could figure out how to pronounce it. So he looked it up. Cuy = Kwee, long e sound. He even brought up the site that pronounces the words for you. But I do have to say, I don't care what you call it or pronounce it, you won't find it as part of any menu I might prepare.

I couldn't eat someone's pet, but apparently guinea pigs run in herds in Peru and are farmed like chickens. If dressed properly and not someone I know, I'd probably eat it. Would NEVER eat haggis....

After watching countless hours of Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Foods show, I'd be embarrassed if I didn't eat it.
