    Especially if you shop at Findus, the Findus Beef Lasagna seems to be named correct as it contains 60-100% horse meat.

    If you've never eaten horseflesh, you're missing out. It's delicious! Although I still chuckle when I think back to my French friend's response after I'd bought a bunch of horse-burgers:

    "Pas de chevaux chez-moi!"

    That's not as bad as some international students I took to a store once, and
    they started getting cans of dog food, until I told them it was food for dogs
    not the other way around.

    Beef = Cattle
    Horse = Horsemeat

    You use horses to round up cattle so you can get more beef.:lol:

    With beef you feed luthiers. If the horses wear out, you make horsehide glue and then the luthiers build vintage acoustics.

    Circle of life, simple.

    horsemeat...Hippophagy may have become somewhat popular in industrial Europe, but it had been taboo there for at least a millennium before. Pope Gregory III wrote a letter to Boniface, an eighth-century bishop in Germany, instructing him to eliminate the practice among pagan converts of eating horsemeat. The pope described hippophagy as a “filthy and abominable custom". Horses arent kosher either. So historians popular view is that fact separated christians from pagans. Also in Ireland by canonic law "Collectio canonum Hibernensis" they were forbidden to eat horse meat and were therefore more or less starved and forced to live on bread and water.

    Depends on where you are from and how you were raised. Theres no meat a man cant eat. :twisted:

    I too have "enjoyed" horse, in the form of a sausage in France. It was OK, but I wouldn't go galloping back to that restaurant again. :lol:

    I must confess, the lack of traceability of food - particularly processed food - was a reason we don't have a freezer in our home anymore, so all our food is purchased fresh from local sources and farm shops. And we're not paying over the odds for it.

    The concept of convenience foods in our house is a meal that is quickly prepared with fresh ingredients, much of it locally sourced, and prepared in our kitchen using our own hands.

    My wife's lasange is all home made, it takes around 30-minutes to prepare, is 100% horse meat free (we can watch Bob our local butcher take the meat, which he buys locally from a farm which is around 500-metres from where I am sat) and is absolutely delicious.

    We're lucky. We live just 8-miles from a city in a village surrounded by farms, but with careful sourcing, anyone can prepare a fresh lasagne, with or without horsemeat, depending on their preferences and taste.

    Hopefully, this will make more people aware that the source of their food is important.

    :D Peter

    Appears to be much the same source, eastern european.

    Not so much as health scare, although horses may have been given veterinary medications not permitted in human food chain, as the wrong meat in the product, there's an element of criminal fraud afoot. Horses do not have the same rigorous controls that cattle have as food product. Quality control has gone titsup en France where the Findus product was made. Now the french do eat horse but they segregate it from beef and they are obsessed with food, they will go en fou absolutement.
