Eel pie is a wonderful dish, IMO. Exotic is in the eye of the
beholder. I think eel pie is perfectly normal, as is hossenfeffer,
stuffed venison roast,chard tart, and cabbage salad. :) I figure if
it's being served, it's probably eatable so I try it. If I don't
like it, I just don't take more. Simple.
