When we visited South Africa,
our cook always told us we were eating
Kudu Burgers, Giraffe Sausages, Buffalo Steaks
or whatever else may, or may not have
popped into his mind.
Whether true or not, everyone had a chuckle
and commented on the taste of the meat etc.
Whenever I relate this story to people
who have not had an affinity with the land,
and/or slaughtered their own animals for meat,
the reaction is similar.
How could you do it? I couldn’t eat giraffes!
And so on.
on a food van at the Old Paper Mill last weekend.
I have never sampled any Australian native wild life,
yet happily munched South African wild life.
Every now and again I hear of kangaroo being on a menu,
but I have never heard or seen crocodiles or emus
being served for lunch.
