Food with an Attitude


Have you ever had food that smiled back at you? Until dinner this event, I had not eaten the face of any animal to my knowledge. I have had interesting food in my travels, but this one tops them all.

We spent the day visiting goat raisers in the northern part of Cebu. I heard stories about how raising goats had changed not only their financial situation, but also provided hope for a brighter future.

Besides just talking with the raisers, I spent a lot of time looking at the goats themselves. Inspecting them to see how healthy they were as well as trying to gain a better understanding of what it takes to have a healthy goat herd.

Fast forward a few hours. It is dinner time, and I am extremely hungry. We say the prayer before our meal and they uncover the food. I was staring face to face with a severed goats head who has a slight smile.

The next dish was chicken feet. It was delicious.
