snipshot_89rpkept0n9.jpgBefore you go ‘eww’ on this one, let’s take a look at what this ‘shocking’ new show is bringing to the table. From the article,

“The BBC programme, with the appetising name Road Kill Café, made by Oliver’s TV-production company Fresh One, features pioneering forager and road-kill chef Fergus Drennan.
Drennan’s delicacies include badger meatballs, roast duck and wild squirrel stew.

And Drennan’s main ingredients all have one thing in common: they met their ends on the road.”

Okay, but keep in mind that this road kill is super-fresh. “The animal must be fresh. If rigor mortis has set in it’s not eaten. Otherwise it’s immediately back to his kitchen. In the show, Road Kill Café, Drennan goes to Sandwich in Kent to persuade locals to forage for the first time and discover the delights of road-kill meat.

At the end of a three-week stay, he holds a wild-meat banquet, offering people the choice to eat either the food he sourced from beaches, forest undergrowths and roadside gutters or from normal channels.”

Um, well, I’m a little split on this one. On one hand, I can only trust the regulations in place for the meat I consume to protect me; even then, I have no idea how these animals are treated. So, roadkill would be a nice alternative. However, I’m not sure how much I trust the guy driving around town looking for meat off the side of the road; nor what killed the animal in the first place. All of this in consideration, I would still be curious enough to stop in and sample the menu. Would you? Have you ever tried road kill?
