Take the bug, leave the pig
When you look at lists of kosher foods, invariably nestled alongside the usual suspects (cow, chicken, fish with scales), you see some wild-cards: Gazelle, for example, and addax, whatever addax is (looks a lot like gazelle). Last week in Jerusalem, some folks cooked up a special feast featuring exotic-but-kosher animals, prepared under the laws of kashrut, and had themselves quite a time. Swordfish! Buffalo! Grasshopper? Hrmm. Maybe just let us know when you find the kosher versions of lobster and bacon.
