Fr. Fred, When I was living in Hong Kong in the sixties while working for Merrill Lynch, restaurants usually serve snake soup during winter because it warms the body. Have tasted it once just for the heck of it. The Chinese also serve monkey's brains but have not tasted this. In Madrid of my younger days, there was a restaurant close to Puerta Mayor whose delicacy was 'anguilas' or tiny eels cooked in olive oil. They are slimey and they just slide through your throat like worms. And one can hardly find a restaurant seat when 'anguilas' are in season. I guess it is cultural. What is a delicacy to one culture is barbaric food to another, depending on how you look at it. Linda
