Horse Meat...would you eat it?

Food Network Canada – Reality Check Required! | Canadian Horse Defence Coalition's Blog

There has recently been a huge controversy on horse meat caused by an episode of Canada's Top Chef featuring the preperation and eating of horse meat. Tons of people (not just horsie people) were outraged about this as horse is not a "meal" in general North America and rioted hard to stop the episode from airing. The episode did end up airing and as a result of this, President's Choice (a large food company out of Extra Foods, No Frills, Superstore) starting selling and advocating the buying of horse meat. Anybody else hear of this??


Now I personally found this controversy so interesting (mainly because I'm a horse nut haha) and decided to research, report and study the human consumption of horse meat for one of my university research classes. I found a crazy amount of information and I really think what I found will shock you guys! I do want to get some of your opinions and use it in my research paper (if that's okay of course!) so I want to see what you guys think of eating horse meat before I share my research and viewpoint on it.


So before I share what I found...would you eat horse meat if given the chance?

Darn right I would, maybe not today, and maybe not by choice, but if it was the only meat that I could afford, or was available to me, sure I would eat it.

I have nothing against those who choose to eat horse meat, I choose to eat both pig and cow, and I know that offends a lot of people in the world, so it would be hypocritical of me to dictate what other eat.

There was a thread on this about a year ago that I created. Here it is

I recently found out that horse meat, like crustaceans, pork, rabbit, & other kinds of flesh, is not kosher, according to God's directives in the Old Testament. So, I've gone from "only if starving" to "maybe if starving" :).

I grew up in EU and I have eaten horsemeat as a child. Not my favorite meat, but then again, neither is rabbit.

People eat beef, lamb, pork, etc. I don't think horse much different.

I voted No BTW, because I've heard (from those who tried) that horse is not very tasty.

Ah ha ha ha ha! That is great!

But, I would not eat it except if it was eat horse or starve. Not that I want to stop others from doing it... I would not eat dog just for the heck of it either.
