Don’t Tell Black Beauty March 23, 2010

Horse meat is being served in a British restaurant for the first time at Edinburgh’s L’Escargot Bleu.

The restaurant is offering diners a choice of pan-fried rump steak or steak tartare – and its boss says the meat is delicious.

Fred Berkmiller, the head of L’Escargot Bleu in Edinburgh, said: ‘It is tender, sweet, less fatty than beef, and contains higher levels of iron and omega 3.’

He added: ‘Each time I go home to Tours, my father makes me horse steak tartare. I want my Scottish customers to taste it.’

About 70,000 horses are consumed in France each year. In 2005 – the latest year for which figures are available – about 4.7 million were consumed globally.

What do you think, BWT readers?  Would you eat horse meat?  Is it really any different to, say, eating pork?
