Chef Shawn Greenwood makes no bones about the horse meat dish available at his restaurant Taste, in Calgary.
“I have no problem serving horse or talking about it, whatsoever,” he says. “It’s not really that big of a deal.”
Greenwood says Taste added horse tartare to its menu in March, after he researched a few horse farms in Alberta that raise the aniamls specifically for slaughter.
It’s a delicacy in other parts of the world,” he says. “You can buy it in supermarkets in Quebec; it’s right next to the lamb and beef.”
