Edited on Fri Jun-09-06 02:17 PM by QuestionAll
i think i know what i'm going to try when we're in france later this year...

Once an ersatz beef of the poor, horse meat has morphed into a high-end fare of discerning European carnivores.And some of the world's tastiest comes from the United States, where mustangs roam the range buffing up on nothing but grass, according to European horse butchers.

"Horse meat is very good for your health," said Max Marki, proprietor of Boucherie Chevaline on the Boulevard du Pont d'Arve in Geneva, Switzerland.

"During World War II, it was the meat of the poor. Now it's become a therapeutic meat. Doctors recommend it, especially for people with heart problems."

"It's lean, high in protein and low in cholesterol," said Alfred Bredel, proprietor of the 110-year-old Ross-Schlachterei Bredel, Berlin's only horse butchery. "It's healthier than beef and costs about the same. It's no longer the meat of the poor."

and as far as mustangs being part of out "national heritage"...weren't they actually brought here by the spanish? they aren't a natural species to the american west.
