The few people who have tasted it say its kind of a cross between chicken and fish and not to bad.

However my mother in law remebers back in post-war Japan when the only meat most people could afford was whale meat. From her discription it is very fatty tasteing and rubbery texture. She says it was usally very unpleasant, I'd take her word for it, whale just doesnt seem apatizing.

Hmm....I guess I'd try it, just to see how it tasted. I mean you never know right?

I wasn't totally against trying it right up until I read "and feel very thankful to the whales for allowing us to make the burgers" Something about that statement makes me cringe! lol

Hi Kara. Nice to "see" you again.

Guess it's a matter of taste, & hundreds of years ago, maybe survival. So glad we have a choice as to what we'd like to eat. Makes life so much more interesting...don't you think?

Kitchen, love your flan avatar. Yummy.

Thank's mish - my avatar is compliments of GB.

And also, a total depletion is just as bad as an over abundance of a particular species. They were left alone and not pursued. Now there are plenty of them again.

I think it's all a cycle that is called - life.

cute mish - I have a flan recipe - I'll post it in the Desserts - Don't eat all of it or there won't be any to reproduce - we must populate the world with flan.
