what about Kangaroo, Emu, Crocodile or lizard. We have them all down here in Australia. They're not that bad actually. And I know fried cat sounds gross, but we have this delicacy here that's native Aboriginal tucker and consists of fire roasted witchety grubs- which are these worms that look like massive maggots, they're pale and squidgy and taste revolting. i know from personal experience... bad memories!

cheers,
lushpup

For us in the north there is a resturant in Copenhagen that serves all that, havenŽt had time to try it yet but I will as soon as IŽll go there.

I'm no chef, but basically they borrow other country's recipies and fuse australian meats with them. Kangaroo usually comes as steak. I'm not sure about emu, but i've had crocodile served in a creamy pasta dish. I'm sorry to say that witchety grubs come just as they are.

and don't believe what kathyv has to say about vegemite. I've eaten it everyday of my life and couldn't live without the stuff! Have you ever tried Marmite? Well vegemite is similar, only more bitter- and much better! maybe kathyv you had it spread too thick? but I admit it's a bit of an acquired taste.
