A Very Important Question

I've wondered about this for a long time.  Whenever someone wants me to try something like rattlesnake, or alligator, or another varmint not usually seen on the menu of a restaurant with even one Michelin star, they always say the same thing: "It tastes just like chicken."

Really?  Then why not eat chicken?  Consider the benefits: it's less dangerous to catch, you're not going to get hurt waiting around the interstate for someone to hit one with a moving vehicle, and you don't have to talk anyone into eating it using suspect chicken similies.  Everybody wins, even the snake.

Well, the chicken doesn't win, but there is always sorrow in this imperfect world.


  1. Yeah, rattlesnake totally does NOT taste like chicken. Plus, it's dry.

  2. AHA! I KNEW that chicked comparison sounded fishy... well, you know what I mean. :)

  3. Haha! True, that. I've never eaten snake or frog's legs or any could be chicken product. Closest I've gotten was perhaps the questionable street kabobs in NYC, lovingly referred to as "cat on a stick" and Chinese take out that could also be lovingly referred to as feline. Both tasted like chicken. Why is my cat now staring at me? Thank you for the award Maria! Love your blog!

    1. Thanks! I love yours, too -- although I think I may have hurt myself laughing about the... um... "feminine" swag. :)
