Eating dogs, cats, horses, etc.

Yaqo Homo | Jan 26, 2007 05:30 AM

I must apologize, but all these dog avatars on a food-related board remind me of our peculiar yet understandable aversion to eating animals that, in this part of the world, we normally regard as our friends and family members.

Though I adore my cat, I find pigs have just as much personality and lambs are equally cute (no, that was not an intentional reference to the "filthy animal" dialogue from Pulp Fiction).

Mostly though, I'd like to know if meat made from our more friendly animals is of much culinary value. If anyone's had, say, Chinese or Vietnamese dog/cat dishes or Italian horse meat, please describe the experience and tell me if it was any good.
