Berkeley student wants Californians to dine out on horsemeat

Shingis Kudaibergen, a master’s student at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, has a position relevant to meat-eating diners, as he says that meat-eating Californians should trade beef or pork for horsemeat.

 

Kazakhstan’s main traditional dish is translated from Kazakh as “five fingers,” conveying that the meal is meant to be eaten with bare hands. Although it might look exotic and hard to cook, in fact, the ingredients are pretty simple. It is made of boiled rectangular pieces of dough called jaima and served with onion sauce and spiked with salt and pepper.

If the health, cost or climate benefits of horsemeat leave U.S. consumers unconvinced, perhaps they should try delicious beshbarmaq or other Kazakh dishes. Maybe the juicy flavor of a properly cooked Kazakh-style meal is what it will take to change attitudes towards the human consumption of horsemeat.
