Today marks the beginning of the Year of the Rat. Although most Westerners would never dream of eating rat, it is actually a delicacy in many places, and surprisingly rat consumption is on the rise, especially in places where the bird flu was rampant and another source of protein was needed. Personally, I'd give the little rodents a try; call me crazy but the recipe for rat steamed with lemon leaves actually sounds appetizing and that picture above doesn't look too shabby either. Rat-atouille anyone?
