I have tried horse in France before, and even tried Donkey! I didn’t really like it – it was quite chewy, but maybe it just hadn’t been cooked very well? I prefer goat meat – I get a lot of that when I go away on fieldwork…it is best cooked on a BBQ! Yum.
I don’t think I’ve ever had horse meat so I don’t know if I like it, but lots of people in different countries eat it all the time – it just isn’t traditional in this country. I’ve eaten lots of things when I’ve been travelling, like crocodile, yak, guinea pig, and even ants! In some countries it’s very common to eat insects and some people think that if everyone ate insects instead of animals like cows we would be able to solve the world hunger crisis becasue they are much easier to farm and very nutritious. Kind of gross though!
I had horse meat when I lived in Germany, I remember it being quite tasty. I’ve had Reindeer too, in Norway. It was a bit like beef. Though, no idea what beef tastes like anymore. Maybe I should say it’s a bit like horse?
