The French are not the only people to eat snails. Italians and Spaniards also enjoy them. In fact, at one time the French considered snails to be a typically Italian dish. It is possible that the custom of eating snails entered France from Italy. Even so, France is now considered the home of snail cuisine. The large snails found in the vineyards of the Burgundy region are considered the tastiest. The snails are usually seasoned with garlic butter and parsley, and sold in their shells. You may purchase one or two dozen, take them home, pop them in the oven, and eat them when the butter melts. They are starters for an evening meal. The French do not eat snails all year round. They are eaten at home mainly at festive times such as Christmas, New Year's Eve, and other special occasions. They are also eaten with a sumptuous meal in a restaurant. Snails are, of course, available throughout the year. What is funny is that you have to buy them from fishmongers. Frogs' legs are also a favorite dish of the French. They say "eat frogs' legs", not "eat frogs". This is probably because they eat only the hind legs and the white flesh on the back. Just like snails, frogs are seasoned with garlic and parsley, and so they are easily cooked. However, you now have much less opportunity to eat frogs. The reason is clear: they have become very expensive. Oddly enough, frogs have also been sold at fish shops since long ago.

以下のとおりお答えします。 (訳文) フランス人は、カタツムリを食べる唯一の国民ではない。イタリア人やスペイン人もそれを賞味する。実のところ、ある時期フランス人はカタツムリを伝統的にはイタリア料理であると考えた。カタツムリを食べる習慣がイタリアからフランスに入ったことは可能である。たとえそうでも、現在フランスはカタツムリ料理の本家と考えられる。ブルゴーニュ地域のブドウ園で見つかる大型カタツムリは、最もおいしいと考えられている。カタツムリは、通常ニンニクバターとパセリで味付けされて、殻に入ったまま売られる。それを1, 2ダース買って、家に持ち帰り、オーブンで「チン」して、バターが溶けた時にそれを食べる、なんてのもいいでしょう。それらは夕食のためのスタート(オードブル)なのである。 フランス人は一年中カタツムリを食べるわけではない。主にクリスマス、大みそか、他の特別な機会などの祝祭の時に、家庭で食べる。それらはまた、レストランの豪華な食事でも食べられる。もちろん、カタツムリは1年中入手可能である。おかしいことに、それは魚屋で買う必要がある、ということである。 カエルの足もまたフランス人の好きな料理である。彼らは、「カエルを食べなさい」ではなく、「カエルの足を食べなさい」と言う。これはたぶん、彼らがもっぱら後ろ足と背中の白い肉だけを食べるからだろう。カタツムリとまったく同じように、カエルはニンニクとパセリで味付けされるので、それでそれは簡単に調理される。とはいえ、今はカエルを食べる機会がずっと少なくなっている。理由は明瞭である。すなわち、それらは非常に高価になったからだ。まったく奇妙なことに、カエルもまた、ずっと以前から魚屋で売られている。

    Frog meat is white with a light flavor. If you feel like trying some, don't eat it in France. It's way too expensive. Instead, if you happen to be going to Southeast Asia or South China, pop into any local restaurant. Frogs for food are now being raised in paddies, and you can eat a plateful of frog legs very cheaply. One more favorite French food that Japanese and Americans avoid is rabbit. Rabbit meat is extremely low in fat. Rabbit meat as a health food first spread from small restaurants and households, until today it is featured on the menus of upscale restaurants. Rabbits are raised for food on a large scale. Go to just about any Parisian market and you will see rows of whole rabbits including the heads. You roast them just like that. The rabbit's liver is usually sold separately, because many people prefer it to chicken liver. The Japanese find nothing appealing about eating snails, frogs, or rabbit's, and there are probably those who would rather die than try to eat any one of them. They probably think that this "backward" and low-class food is suited to people in developing countries. However, they would change their minds and sample the foods if they knew that it is the gastronomically respected French who enjoy them. Funny, isn't it?

    There are also cat-eating cultures. I heard that there were several cat restaurants in Hanoi, Vietnam, so I went to investigate. They do exist, but barely; the government has banned them. The government said it issued this ban on eating cats because the decrease in the cat population has led to an increase in the rat population. This situation is a threat to community health. It was literally a case of, "When the cat's away, the mice will play." Anyway, that's how popular cat meat is. The government's policy is to enforce the ban until the cat population returns to its original size and can control the rat population. The reason for eating cats in China is explained with typical Chinese logic. Dragons and tigers are venerated as symbols of strength. Thus, if you can eat one, no power on Earth will be capable of resisting you. The trouble is, drgons are imaginary animals, and cannot be eaten. Tigers were once abundant, but can hardly be found now. So in place of dragons, the Chinese eat snakes, and in place of tigers, they eat cats. This is especially true of the culinary culture in South China. To return to the news from Melbourne: Australia, a Western society, was flabbergasted by the news that the men had eaten dogs. After all, this is a nation descended from the passionate dog and cat lovers of Britain! At the same time, other Boat People were also astonished. In Vietnam, dogs kept as pets are considered tasteless, and no one would eat them. The dogs the arrested men ate must have been strays. Looked at in that way, you can understand that they felt themselves innocent of any crime. No one knows what became of the two arrested men afterward. Anyway, it's important to understand that the problem lies in differences of cultures and values. It's the difference between two cultures: one that eats dogs and one that doesn't. But no one can say one side is definitely right and the other is wrong. The problem is not so easy.

    It was in the late 1970s, after the end of the Vietnam War that the Boat People made news. These were Vietnamese refugees who fled by boat to Thailand, the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia, and from there tried to get to America, Australia, and Canada. One day, there was a shocking news story out of Melbourne: two Vietnamese Baot People had been arrested and tried in court on charges of killing and eating local dogs. Most East Asian cultures eat dogs, but this custom has been especially common in China. In ancient times, both emperors and commoners ate dog meat, and sacrificed dogs in religious services. Later on, dogs became associated with loyalty, and people stopped eating them. Even so, dog meat is still widely eaten in South China. Eating dog meat is common in both Koreas. In recent times, the culture of eating dog meat was restored under the contemporary slogan. "Return to Traditional Chinese Ways." Methods of preparing dog meat in both Koreas are given in detail in classical cookbooks, and include simmering, steaming, and grilling. Nowadays, dog meat is bought in stores and cooked at home. You can buy it in drugstores and in markets in Seoul. It's a little more pricey than beef, but the quality of the dog meat is very good. If you simmer it like sukiyaki, bubbles rise out of the meat, and the smell is divine. What about Vietnam, the home of the Boat People? There are a lot of specialty shops selling dog meat, and they fill up with customers around dinner time. There are spit-roasted dogs minus their heads and paws hanging in shop windows, and they look delicious. It's just like the South China restaurants, where mouth-watering ducks and chickens are hung in shop windows to attract customers. The Korean shops sell only cooked meat. The meat is eaten together with raw vegetables, and washed down with a local liquor like shochu. This is considered a healthy meal. The meat from these shops is cheaper than beef, and is eaten by the average family. There are also cat-eating cultures. I heard that there were several cat restaurants in Hanoi, Vietnam, so I went to investigate. They do exist, but barely; the government has banned them.

    The ancient city of Peshawar is located in Pakistan, close to the site of the earliest Buddhist sculptures. Sheep are abundant in that area. Medieval wooden homes line the dark streets, and here and there smoke rises from small restaurants nestled among the homes. All the restaurants serve sheep meat, or mutton. The meat is served grilled on skewers or as small steaks. The most delicious fragrance of all comes from kabobs. Kabob, also called kebab, means "grilled meat" in Arabic. The most common meat comes from sheep. The cheapest and best kabobs are found in small restaurants where the meat is grilled over charcoal. Chunks of meat are placed on skewers and grilled over a charcoal fire. That's it. If the cook is skillful, the meat is moist, and melts in your mouth. Large restaurants will season the meat and cook it with onions, however, the authentic kabob is not even seasoned with salt. The quality of the meat determines the flavor, so small authentic restaurants are the best place for kabob. The word shish kabob comes from the Turkish language, and is understood just about everywhere. Sheep meat is considered a great delicacy just about everywhere in the Middle East and Central Asia. The entire animal is eaten, including its innards. In towns, stalls selling sheep innards stand alongside stalls selling mutton. There are corners where dozens of sheep's heads will be displayed for sale. The brains are considered the tastiest part of the animal, and are eaten boiled with a squirt of fresh lemon. In various regions throughout the Middle East and Central Asia, there is an annual rite in which sheep are sacrificed, and the meat is distributed to relatives and neighbors. It is said that in Pakistan, the finest hospitality is shown to company by killing a sheep in the morning, and serving its brains in the evening.

    Let's take a brief tour of a raw meat-eating region. Welcome to the polar region of Canada's Melville Peninsula. The native peoples used to be called Eskimos. This was a derogatory term given them by native peoples from the south, meaning raw meat eaters. They are the meat of caribou, seals, and walruses raw. "Meat" includes the innards, which are considered the most exquisite parts of the animals. You might remember seeing documentary films of lions going straight for the innards of their victims. Of course, in that frozen part of the world, fruits, vegetables, and grains are unobtainable. The native peoples do not suffer from scurvy, and in fact have glossy faces, thanks to their diet of raw meat. A japanese cultural anthropologist who lived among these northern people learned that because of the bland flavor of raw meat, it is possible to eat a lot of it at each meal as a staple food, in the same way Japanese eat rice. Some parts of the innards are bitter while other parts are sour, so if you chew on them as you eat the raw meat, the meat tastes "seasoned" and you never get tired of it. Horsemeat is called cherry meat or sakura-niku in Japan. It may mean that the color of the meat is as beautiful as that of cherry blossom. But it may also mean that horsemeat is a sort of fake meat, sold by con men to unsuspecting passers-by under an exotic-sounding name. Take your choise as to which is the truth. There are those who love horsemeat for its deliciously light flavor. There are few restaurants that serve authentic tartar steak made from horsemeat. Most people do not realize that horsemeat is "the real thing", and that there is no reason to discriminate against it. Where food is concerned, when all is said and done, likes and dislikes are just a matter of taste.

    Tartar steak is well-known as one of the highlights of German cuisine. Raw meat is chopped and lightly seasoned, then kneaded into the shape of a steak. Place the yolk of an egg on top, and there you have it: tartar steak. This seems the simplest of dishes to prepare, something anyone can make. Originally, the Tartars prepared this dish from the tough, raw meat of the horses they raised on the Mongolian and Central Asian plains. Tartar steak entered Europe via Russia in the 13th century. Nowadays, the dish is made with beef, especially in Germany, although the dish originally called for horsemeat. The fact that the Tartars gave their name to the dish should leave no doubt that horsemeat was used. Many mammals are used for food. In the list of mammals used for food, cow and pig are followed by horse and camel, and they are used in every imaginable way. In Japan, horses are practically part of the landscape in Nagano, while in France, horsemeat is a popular food. Camels are used for meat in the Middle East and Africa even more than in Central Asia. The camel-owning nomadic tribes distributed throughout these desert regions live on camel meat, camel milk, and dates. The poetic picture of camels plodding silently across the burning desert is, in fact, more likely to be a funeral procession for the camels than a caravan, as they are being led to market to be sold for meat. Horses and camels are primarily used for riding and as beasts of burden, but their precious meat is frequently eaten. With the exception of France, most European nations do not eat horsemeat, probably because horses are valued for riding. The main characteristic of tartar steak is the fact that the maet is raw. Thousands of yaers ago, before they learned to control fire, all human beings, whether they were Mongoloid, Caucasian or Negroid, ate their meat raw. Generally, fresh raw meat is better for health than stewed or grilled meat.

The university of Wellington Science Society Department is running a scheme allowing students the opinion to kill rats - and in return providing them with free alcohol. The university provides the traps to students to help them catch the rats. Once caught, the students can head into the campus pub, The Hunters Lounge and exchange the dead rats for a beer voucher. The killing of rats was initiated by the Science Society as the rats have become a huge problem and affecting NeZealand's indigenous wildlife.

They also have a competitive edge over insects such as the Weta, a native New Zealand insect which is finding it very difficult to forage for food with the rats for company.

    There is probably no meat as universally popular as mutton. It cuts across religions and cultures. For example, a Japanese research institute found that the traditionally picky Parisians consumed more sheep and duck than any other types of meat. A guest at a Parisian family dinner is likely to find a mouth-watering plate of roast leg of lamb on the bone in the center of the table. There are Japanese who claim to be put off by the smell of roast lamb, but that is probably because they have never smelled really fresh roast lamb. There are sometimes surprises in sheep cuisine. There are many restaurants in Sofia, Bulgaria, specializing in sheep cuisine, but if you cannot read the Bulgarian menu and simply order "the specialty of the house," you are likely to end up with roast sheep's head. This is considered a Bulgarian delicacy, and the tastiest part of the sheep. The British English expression, "mutton dressed as lamb," goes back a long way. Mutton is meat from a mature sheep, while lamb is meat from a young sheep. The phrase indicates an older woman who tries to make herself look young. The old English phrase "eat one's muttons with..." means "to dine with..." Sheep are not just for meat. In the Middle East, Europe, and elsewhere, sheep are free-range domestic animals who are loved for their cute cuddliness.
