Sicilian Food Exploration: Cavallo

The UK is not a fan of horse meat.


The arguments for and against aside, it’s not something I’ve ever been desperate to try (though I’m sure I’ve had it unknowingly).

We spent a few hours in Catania on a food tour with Streat Catania, which was mainly delicious but occasionally… not. However there was no requirement to eat anything you didn’t fancy, and it was an excellent way to try a wide variety of foods that one may not have stumbled across otherwise.

One of the items on the menu was horse burger, and it was fine. I thought it too lean to make a good burger, but it had a beefy slightly gamey flavour that was pleasant enough.
