Never knew this about the Swiss:

Animal Rights Campaigners: Stop Eating Cats at Christmas Dinner

Headline screams another stupid PETA publicity stunt, but it seems this is actually real:
Cat appears on traditional Christmas menus in some areas of Switzerland.

It is often cooked for the festive season in a similar way to rabbit - with white wine and garlic.

"We especially see it in the regions of Lucerne, Appenzell, Jura and in the canton of Bern," said Tomek.

Dog meat goes mostly into making sausages and a fatty remedy for rheumatism.

Snapped this photo of a UFO directly over my head. By my calculations, it's at least a mile wide. No letters or identifiable markings of any kind. Didn't make a sound. You might think I'm crazy, but, well, you be the judge.....

I knew about dog sausages in Switzerland (very localized/traditional/whatever), even if I woulden't dream of eating one of those repugnant beasts.

Polar explorers also slaughtered dogs, for themselves & for the rest of the pack.

For cats I gathered some folkloric details:
– China, of course. They have become rare in the south, so there is import from the north. As the Chinese get more affluent, the cats shift from "food" to "pet" and the animal rights activists, well, become active;
– Korea ;
– in Peru, during the "Santa Efigenia Festival" ;
– the Venetians call the citizens of Vicenza "mangiagatti" ;
– some Australian aboriginals have started consuming feral cats. Presumably good for the local fauna, but an interesting way to get horrible parasites ;
– prohibited in Germany since 2010 (hygienic reasons). Note that cats are still called "Dachhase" ~ roof rabbit :wink: ;
– Austria, prohibited since 2004 (animal protection) ;
– and now for Switzerland, commercially prohibited since 2005, free for personal consumption if you respect the animal protection laws (whatever those are).

And so this thread is really Not.Suitable.For.Kitten.Pics!


P. - S. Abdul, the Larousse gastronomique is an excellent book (at least the old edition). It even gives the true recipe of the "gratin dauphinois": no eggs, no cheese!
