Don't mind me, I'm just missing my sense of humor lately...

a few frog legs , I would actually say that frog does _not_
taste like chicken. And eel _definitely_ does not taste like
chicken. Or frog, for that matter.
Now, how to get this back on topic? Make reference to the French
farce, _The Eel Pie and the Tart_? Or ask what other sorts of
exotic foods appeared on medieval tables ? Or ask how people
reacted to unusual foods being served?
 When I was growing up on the family farm, there were periods
of time when we were raising chickens, up to 3000 at a time.
Free range chickens. I understand Chaos theory...
 Hunted the frogs myself, with a frog spear.
 In one English translation, the title was changed to _The
Chicken Pie and the Chocolate Cake_. The story doesn't depend on
the food, but finding out that the original had an eel pie was
quite ... enlightening.

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.
