The French started eating horse meat after the revolution. When you're starving because your ruler is more concerned with his own comforts than with taking care of its people it's a recipe for trouble. And of course starving people will eat anything. I've never had it but I understand at least as late as WWII people could buy it at the local butcher shop.

I grew up in Italy, horse-meat carpaccio is still fairly common - which is not just horse-meat, but raw horse-meat. I never really gave it a second-thought, but I was never really a fan of it either... horse-meat tends to be a bit too sweet and chewy for my taste, especially raw like that.

Anyhow, while I do not really care for horse-meat, I do truly miss eating rabbit, which is always hard to find in the USA. Which I don't get. Horse, fine. But rabbit is tasty!

In France horsemeat is still very common, and on demand available in Germany too (although a bit expensive).
By now ostrich is more common than horse.

In southern Japan too.

Interesting... I could never get used to the taste of rabbit. Or squirrel, for that matter. Even disguised in a stew, they both have unpleasant taste, for me, that is. Both are popular meats for others.

I ate horsemeat once in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was absolutely fine. But crocodile is far more interesting, like rather rich and chewy shrimp.

Well, yes, of course. Although I have had the recipe in Mary Berry's Ultimate Cake Book for some time before the Great British Bake-off.

And very good it is too!

That does look tasty... I wonder how many calories a 1/6 slice would be, with the jam AND the whipped cream? Perhaps if I didn't eat for the next few days it would work out...
