Would You Eat Guinea Pig?

I consider myself an adventuresome eater. This means I'll try anything once and don't get squeamish by the sight of pig legs, fish heads, octopus tentacles, or stomach linings. Still, it's happened to the best of us: sometimes the things people eat are just plain gross. The smell is overpowering and inevitably you lose your appetite.

My sister recently traveled to the mountains of Ecuador where guinea pig is a delicacy. A girl after my own heart, she ordered and sampled the rodent stating that there was not a lot of meat and it was mostly crispy skin with a taste similar to chicken skin. How about you? Would you eat guinea pig, or is reading this making you sick?

Would and have eaten a guinea pig (cuy). Like your sis, there wasn't much meat on mine. It was fried, I'd like to try it spit roasted. Peru just celebrated its second annual Guinea Pig Festival.http://www.slashfood.com/2007/06/29/perus-second-annual-cuy-festival/
