I am a (Viking) Mongol. The French were lucky we turned around. :)
But we could have improved their diet somewhat. Some things are
simply unfit to eat. Not that we're civilized or anything....
[Garrett, William] I hate to barge in here, being an Englishman commenting on Mongol cuisine........I beleive that one of the Mongols great delicacies to this day is Marmot......essentially a big rat. If I remember right it is either boiled without seasoning or cooked by loading a bunch of hot stones into its body cavity.
Now I am not a big fan of the French, but I do have to say that a lot of there food sounds far more palatable than marmot......although I gag/smirk at cross over cuisine....French- Mongol, boiled marmot served in a rich Bernaise.......:o)
France is a wonderful, beautiful country.....it should be divided up equally between England and Germany. (that was a joke....)
