Summer Olympic Games: Culinary Customs Hard to Swallow.
While I look forward to the Summer Olympics, at the same time I am having difficulty understanding why the Chinese and other Asian countries serve dog meat.
All Summer Game contracted hotels and restaurants have been ordered to withdraw dog meat from their menus to avoid upset and protests from those particpants and visitors who find the practice odious.
And while I mean no disrespect to Chinese culinary customs, there is something about serving up a canine companion that leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
How do you feel about the temporary ban on dog meat during the Summer Games? Leave a comment and share.
