I must say I'm surprised at the number of people who are appalled at the notion of eating horse meat. Granted, only beef should be present in beef burgers but horse meat is lovely.

I think people are being a bit squeamish. Horses generally are given a name. Most people don't like eating things with a name.

it's custom and culture as well

I can remember when horsemeat was eaten in this country. There was a horsemeat buthchers in Leeds when I was a kid, but it was going out of style.

The point is though that these burgers weren't supposed to have it in, same goes for the pork that was also found in them.

I love rabbit and considering the number of them and how easy they are to breed I'm surprised we don't eat more of them.

Up until the myxomatosis outbreak in the 50's we did.Unfortunately intensive farming made pork,chicken etc cheaper to buy than rabbit.

I remember the horse meat butcher in Leeds - near the market. I've seen horse meat butchers in France - there's usually a brass horse's head over the door. I ordered steak hache cheval in a restaurant in Brive thinking it was horse - but it was just a burger with an egg on top!
If you don't like Tesco's burgers try their meatballs, I hear they're the dogs b ollocks!

I'd have no problem with horse meat being available for sale in the UK. I'd like rabbit to be easier to find in the shops too.

I can understand the furore, though. And there is also the legal matter of listed ingredients not matching actual contents. That matter should always be strictly regulated and checked.

Noticed in Waitrose last night - they are now stocking Penderyn Welsh whisky. I had some a few years ago, but had problems finding it in the shops* 'til now.

I went into this bar with my daughter's partner in NYC had a couple of great beers, and Phil told the bartender it was my birthday.
He gave me a glass of this rye whisky on the house. It was one of the best whysky's I've ever tasted.

also

slow braised virginia lamb in a resataurant in Washington. You could taste the grass it had lived on.

dim sum in a cafe in China town, really delicate, superbly balanced flavours but really filling.

corned beef hash with two eggs over easy on top and a side of home fries in a side street diner, everywhere formica but with bits chipped off the corner, populated by people who lookled as though they'd been up all night and possibly the night before.

a hot dog from papaya dog a street corner scruffy joint on a street corner

and finally filet mignon in BB King's blues bar after being enraptured by Johnny Winter.

highlights of an outstanding eating and suping experience accompanied by some gorgeous beers.

I love Rabbit, Horse, & Kangeroo, my local butcher also has Zebra & Crocodile.

However I am still waiting for Naan bread to rise, Sunday is a Small Turkey stuffed with Partridge with Guinea Foul roast.

I will save Kangeroo Burgers until the evening of the World Cup Final

I would also like to point out that I love Romney Marsh Lamb, Sussex Ham, & Suckling Pig from Cornwall.

& as for the seafood around here............

I Love it #####

On my recent trip to Brugge I had a great beef carbonadde served with a massive dollop of apple sauce, at first I thought it was a weird combination but it was brilliant.
