    I don't think it's fair to say "meat eaters". I doubt that the Saan people of the Kalahari for exmple can be held responsible for ecological damage during the course of their hunting and gathering out there in the sticks of Namibia. I think "meat consumers" as in the consuming participants of our consumerist systems of food production are the guilty party here.

    We tend to take the way "we in the West" do things and project it rather unfairly on everyone ever who ever lived anywhere. So the term "meat-eater" brings to mind some fat guy stuffing his face with a beef-burger whilst wearing a MAGA cap, as if that's all "meat eaters" have ever been or could ever be, it's annoying.

    Unfortunately, the way that we eat meat in the west is spreading to other parts of the world. Accompanying that is deforestation, polluting of waterways, rising obesity, diabetes, heart disease, etc.

    i know, and I agree... in fact I'd go further and say that agriculture is destroying the planet. if you ate only corn and wheat or a banana you'd still be part of the problem.

    Don't have a problem with vegans or veggies. but when they try to claim the moral high ground whilst living in western society its a bit much, onanism innnit.

    i admit it was puerile.

    Still you must try sheeps brain sometime.

    which is usually a euphemism for disgusting stuff to get tourists to eat for a laugh

    I'm not so sure about that. i had an english kebab once. truly the worst food i have ever tasted. abhorrent. would you call that a delicacy?

    worse than tesco aubergines which are sickly enough. no earthly twang. what is that all about?

    an English kebab. and one presented as a delicacy. i believe the doner kebabs you get here are presented as Turkish, not English, although my local posh kebab shop claims they are a Berlin thing.

    Proper Turkish kebabs are a little different to your average English kebab shop kebab.

    Well, the ones I’ve had in Turkish restaurants are.

    Was it advertised as a delicacy?
    I somehow doubt it was.

    Of course, but kebabs are never presented as an English delicacy.

    just as long as they don't have any fucking salad in and they're served in a flatbread rather than a shitty pitta

    It can seem like it if you’re drunk enough.

    Up in Wigan they have the pie barm. :)

  25. Black pudding is lush though. So not a trap for tourists as you previously said :confused:

    Does a country need an official delicacy in order for it to be a country?
    I'm guessing you don't live in England? (yes, it has a capital E, the same as all other countries are capitalised(there's probably a pun in there))
    Seems more like a points scoring exercise you're on.

    What’s wrong with shredded red cabbage and onion with a kebab? You Philistine carnist.

    It would be to tourists though. who'd want to eat a sausage made from scabs?

    I'm pretty sure those are two things the Philistine carnists very commonly have in their kebabs.
