If you are one of these guys who is disgusted by horse meat and can’t believe that people in France and Switzerland (and many more I’m sure) enjoy the expressive, strong flavor of horse meat, you shouldn’t bother to watch the video.

The living! the frog is cut in several small pieces and served in a bowl of stock. While it is still quite alive.

Young schoolgirls seem to like the flavor and can be watched, eating the freshly skinned frog with their wooden chopsticks. いただきます!This sure isn’t for everyone. Even if I consider myself quite open-minded when it comes to unknown foods and foreign delicacies, I couldn’t bear to see how the small animal gets slaughtered in front of my eyes and then jumps directly on my plate. But maybe that’s just me.
