Let’s not mess about – there are going to be a lot of body parts in this countdown. So we’re starting with one of the least obvious things that you might fancy eating – a cow’s tongue. It was a favorite among the Tudor nobles, along with boar meat and venison (the Tudors were very keen on their meat – the poorer people largely subsisted on a thin brew known as pottage). But the disturbing thing is that this particular delicacy is still popular in many places around the world, thanks to its “velvety” and “subtle” texture. If you buy a authentic Mexican taco, check the ingredients and you may well find a bit of tongue in there. Appetizing!
