Menu Clarification - Please tell me they aren't serving Smoked Mouse

TD_Toni | Jun 13, 201805:52 PM     11

Ok, maybe my naivety is showing but I was perusing menus for our upcoming trip and when looking at Lameloise in Beaune, there was a menu item listed as follows:

VEAU FERMIER
pièce de veau rôtie au poivre de Tasmanie | le ris de veau braisé
nectar de romaine | fricassée de rattes fumées aux sarments de vigne
jus à la fleur de sureau

Fricasee de rattes fumes - smoked mice

I did some googling and such and can't find any translation other than mouse and certainly nothing related to food specific. So, please, is there something missing in translation or is the gardener out there trapping ground creatures for use in the local 3* establishment?
