illaine replied to your post:Once you get this you must share five random facts about yourself. Then (if you want) pass this on to your ten favorite followers..I swear that we don’t eat frogs legs that much (I think I tried only once)! Guilty for snails though (mostly for garlic…
Well, we don’t eat snails every day ;-) But sometimes for formal dinners.
Emu has become quite popular in France since maybe 10 years (there are even emu’s farms here…). I tried kangaroo years ago in an Australian restaurant in Paris: it was nod bad but it’s definitly something a bit strange for a European I think (kangaroo is a sweet thing you find in zoos, or stuffed for kids or as a label for babies wraps!). Never tried crocodile: i have no idea how it looks like or tastes like… But pretty sure my son would love it!
Crocodile is like salty chicken, and when i had it, it was served like a chop (with bone). It can be over cooked very easily and be tough. I have a feeling you would cook it similar to goat. Not my first choice of an animal to chow down on!
Emu oil has miraculous healing properties in regards to osteo/arthritis problems.
As to kangaroo, sure they are an iconic animal (on our coat of arms and everything) but they are in over populated numbers in many parts of Australia, and sometimes become a ‘pest’. They are an animal that is very healthy to eat, with incredibly low fat content and high in nutrients. I’d eat it more but the rest of the family are not overly excited by it. Our native Koori people eat almost everything, but we are not permitted to eat koala, platypus, echidna, keeping in mind that many of our animals are actually poisonous too! (not going near any kind of snake here!)
One day when I go north again, I would love to try goanna!
