By the way, I used to have a PET turtle, and for me eating turtle would be like eating dog.

when i was in vietnam, back in the sixties, i was visiting a fairly large town, and looking for a public privvy........... out behind a bar, i found one.........returning to the bar, i noticed about a dozen or so puppies in cages. cute little buggers, they were, and, being a coon-dog lover since birth, i asked if i could buy one to take back to base-camp. i was told they were needed for the kitchen!
i didn't eat there!!!!

Yes - that's an unfortunate fact of different cultures. Although here in the U.S. we consider such animals as parrots, dogs, horses, etc., as "companion" animals, that is not the case in other parts of the world.

I recall watching a documentary on dogs a few years ago, & they broached the subject of how dogs are "considered" in other countries. It was revolting, yet at the same time fascinating in a surreal sort of way.

In the good ole days of Chesapeake Bay Cuisine, Maryland Terrapin (pronounced Murlin Tarpin), was not a college team but a dish savooured by gourmets of the east coast. THe terrapin was cooked in it's shell, cleaned and presented to the diner in the inverted shell, with a cream sauce, and dry sherry. Delicious!

Turtles are not our friends, they are our food.

I remember having something called Mock Turtle Soup as a kid. I recall that I really liked it - so off to google I went:

Mock Turtle Soup Recipe

Ingredients
1/2 cup oil
1/2 pound beef (inexpensive cut), chopped
1/2 pound pork (Boston butt or roast), chopped
1/2 pound chicken, chopped
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp finely chopped celery
10 cups meat stock or water
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Salt to taste
Louisiana hot sauce to taste
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped fine
Sherry (optional)
Lemon slices (optional)

Instructions
Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat and brown all the meat. Remove the meat from the pot and set aside.
In the same pot, stir in the flour to make a dark roux, stirring while cooking until the roux is dark brown. To the dark roux, add the onions, green onions, parsley and celery, stirring after each addition, and cook until the onions are clear. Add 1 cup of the stock and stir to form a thick paste, then stir in the tomato sauce. Stir in the remaining stock, then add the meats, salt and hot sauce. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer another hour.
Serve with a teaspoon of sherry and a slice of lemon.
Yield: 10 to 12 servings Credits
Recipe from: Justin Wilson's Homegrown Louisiana Cookin' by Justin Wilson (Macmillan)

I just might have to make this. It does sound good.
