Been wanting to try the delicacy that those in France, China, Germany and many other countries have available in most fine dining establishments?
Well, now you can. Monsu, an Italian restaurant in Philly, PA, will be offering horsemeat as a menu item in the coming months. Chef Peter McAndrews says he plans to serve horse meat on smaller plates or in pasta.
Not surprisingly, the chef and the restaurant have received a lot of ridicule and even some threats to their safety and lives. One person even said, "If you serve it, we're gonna blow the place up."
Wow. That's a little excessive. Harming people?
Here are some more links to horse meat articles about the Philly restaurant and one in particular about Obama's new budget not containing funding for horse slaughter. Disappointed?
What do you think about the prospect of horse meat being served? Appetizing or ghastly?
Until next time,
