Horse d'oeuvres not for Lincolnshire folk suggests columnist Hugh Rogers
I suppose it was a bit naughty of those Irish/Polish suppliers to slip a bit of horse into our burgers without telling us, but really, you know, it isn't poisonous or anything. Perhaps it is that when people have a "multi-cultural" society forced upon them against their wishes, they discover (sometimes the hard way) that foreigners have different tastes from our own and react against it. After all, in this country, and especially in Lincolnshire, horses are something to ride on rather than tuck into, are they not ?
However, different countries, different eating habits. So what that the French like cheval, the Norwegians, whalemeat and the Lappish people go a bundle on reindeer (eat your heart out Santa Claus!) By the same token, the Chinese like dog, the Peruvians relish the odd guinea pig drumstick and I'm told that Australian "bush tucker" is really tasty, once it stops wriggling. Still, we're all friends together now, so perhaps we should, you know, get used to it. I'm told that the Poles have a great liking for tripe. I don't know if that's true, but if I find any tripe in my burgers, that might be a step too far, even for me!
