Subject: Eating rabbit -- Leonardo's query
Leonardo, I think my students did not want to eat rabbit because of the image of the cute little Easter bunny or the image of their beloved Peter Rabbit books + as has been pointed out, many people just do not want to eat that which is unusual to them and not part of their experience. For most of my students here in the mid-Atlantic region, rabbit is not a part of their families' normal everyday diet; thus they approach it with trepidation. I remember that on early trips, many many years ago, before quiche became an everyday thing here, students looked at quiche served in Europe with suspicion! These sorts of attitudes were part of the reason I started taking students around the world--to broaden their horizons a bit. Cheers, Pat in Baltimore
