It's All the Rage in the U.K.

According to the N.Y. Times, at British butcher shops and elegant restaurants this meat

. . . is selling as fast as gamekeepers and hunters can bring it in.

. . . many feel that eating [it] is a way to do something good for the environment while enjoying a unique gastronomical experience.
What meat are the Brits increasingly fond of? It's squirrel.

No joke.

Just for the record, I have eaten a few helpings of squirrel stew. (And, no, it doesn't taste like chicken, but it is pretty good.)
