    One can buy Schnitzel from chicken and pig, too. But "Original Wiener Schnitzel" has to be made of veal. Producing schnitzel with meat of pigs and especially chicken is a quite new trend...most Bavarians laugh about it.

    In Vienna you can buy "Schnitzel vom Schwein" at restaurants. It's not considered taboo, it's just not genuine Viennese Schnitzel. I haven't seen any Schnitzel with chicken meat around here.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    There is no way I'd attend such an event, because I rarely eat 'regular' meat to begin with. The thought of eating something like dog or cat sickens me, and I personally cannot fathom the desire to do so. For the past few years, there has been bread available in the shops that is made out of insects, which is odd, but weren't chocolate covered insects some sort of a trend in the 1970s?

    I'm a fussy eater with a weak stomach.

    I wouldn't eat any of the taboo foods listed in this thread.

    Of those listed I have had veal, I don't see it as taboo, and it was a favorite of mine for a long time (Viennese Schnitzel), with lots of lemon juice squeezed on it.

    I had to eat a seafood dinner once at my boyfriend's family's house and I got sick from it. It was the only time I ate seafood.

    As for real taboo food like dogs, cats, snakes, monkey and all, it would have to be a case of life or death.


    But I eat horse meat, and I know that there is a strong taboo against it in many European countries, especially England. It's funny to think that in the eyes of some of you, I'm already a taboo food eater.
    But I think that many Europeans are not aware where their disgust against horse meat comes from.
    Horse meat was holy to ancient Germanics. Horses were slaughtered as a sacrifice to the Gods. Saint Boniface, the Apostle of the Germans, reported it to the Pope Gregory III, and there is a correspondance between them over "hippophagia", its importance in Germania, and its symbolical role as a pagan rite. At this point the consumption of horse meat was so characteristical of Germanics who continued to worship their gods, apperaing as a constitutive element of germanic paganism, that the Church unleashed a real war against this custom. Gregory banned it officially in 732. It became a diabolic food, he who would eat it would go to hell, etc.. Later in the Middle Ages, the butcher who had dared to handle horse meat in his life was banned from the usual entrance of the cemetery, and his coffin was carried over the cemetery's wall. No wonder that so many continue to abhor it today.
    The consumption of horse meat was one of the concessions that the Church had to make to the Icelanders to make them adopt christianism in the year 1000. It's still prized there today.

    As it is in Flanders (as well as in the rest of Belgium) and northern France (french Flanders as well as the Boulonnais - Boulogne-worst anyone ?).
    Butcheries specialized in horse meat are very usual here.


    I never heard of any of that before but I was told that the reason horses are found slaughtered in South Florida is because Hispanic people believe that eating horse meat would produce strong, healthy sons.

    I've had ostrich before but thats pretty much where I draw the line. Ostrich tastes a bit like a cross between chicken and beef.
    Its not bad just strange. Horse I've never had.

    Horse is great, and a real heathen food It was made illegal here when Christianity came, eating horse had a ritual significance.
    I only ate it once, but I would eat it again.

    But how are they considered taboo anywhere in the West? Maybe in some hippie areas of California

    Eating pig is even cheaper than cow and chicken.

    It was a comment on eating horse. The only way I'm getting horse meat is if I go to a ranch or something.
