I’m deliberately posting this link after lunch. George Monibot has a typically controversial piece in the Guardian today about his recent meal of barbequed squirrel, sourced “dead but still twitching” from the side of the road.

Also, the article is notable for introducing us to this delectable dish, roast grey squirrel on onion risotto, apparently served at the Manor House Inn in Northumberland for £11.95. I hate to denigrate something so worthy and sustainable but… seriously, who would eat this??!!
