It's reportedly healthy, has half the fat of beef and contains loads of Omega 3. It's savoured in France and enjoyed as afar away as Kazhakstan, Japan and Sweden, where sales exceed those of lamb and mutton.
So this week's news that in the UK Tesco's Economy Frozen burgers tested for 29% horse meat and the media frenzy that surrounded this, made me wonder what do SFNers think about eating horse meat?
Personally, I think the big issue in the UK for Tesco should have been the fact that their customers and the Food Standards Agency cannot trust their suppliers to be correctly labelling the contents of that food item but it actually ended up being a whole debate about whether British people are revolted at the thought of eating horse meat.
In Pezenas there is a Boucherie Chevaline but I've not yet ventured in there...What about you? I know there are many horse lovers out there (but I imagine this is love as a pet) But - do you enjoy a tasty horse steak or do you prefer to decline to dine equine?
