Yeah, well, I've had experienced eating muscles one time at an Italian restaurant. I also had Menudo when I took Spanish class in high school when we had a party.

To Roger's point, I think pretty much all of us--unless we come from purely aristocratic or vegetarian backgrounds--have a lot of chitterlings, feet, kidneys, brains, and other sweetmeats in the diet of our genetic memories. The reason why traditional cultures eat these "disgusting" parts of an animal is that when you don't have much access to meat, or when purchasing it for a big family uses up most of the money you've got, you probably learn to consume every part of the animal you can afford or get your hands on. The most poignant experience like this that I can remember is when I ate sopa de sesos while traveling in Mexico around 1988. This is brain soup. Maybe it was because I couldn't look at it ... but this was not disgusting to me. Not my favorite, but the brain mostly is made up of fat, so the flavor was much like what you might expect if you eat a fatty piece trimmed from a beef roast. One of my uncles, a lifelong Midwestern farmer of German extraction, used to say that eating fat of this kind was his form of candy. This doesn't go back far in time. -Kane To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
