So what’s the problem with horse meat in burgers (apart from issues with trade description act)?

Horse. Half the fat and much higher in Omega 3 in comparison to beef. And very tasty. I’ve eaten horse stew and it tasted delicious – very similar to the taste of beef, and in a blind tasting I probably couldn’t tell the difference between the two.

And yet the English have this squeamishness about eating horse. Same as their problem with eating bambi-burgers.

This odd sentimentality about horses as pets or deer as cartoon cuteness makes it off-limits for the table. Odd.
