  4. A Lebanese engineer friend told me about a marriage feast he attended in Saudi Arabia where roasted camel was featured. I know. That’s not funny, but it’s a thing I was unaware people might do to the camel besides mount them. Hee ! Hee! On their backs, not, um, you know!

  5. LAUGHING!
    I didn’t know what it was when I ate it.

    But I see your point, the horror! I saw a grilling video the other day and thought to myself, “this whole animal is too big to be a sheep or even a cow.” It was a whole horse. So now I feel your horror when I said I had camel meat.

  9. Am I really the only one who doesn’t find this video cheap publicity for Dubai? I’ve seen this before (a long time ago) and I found it disturbing then.
    I DO believe that camel meat tastes amazing, the way it’s cooked, as is (and yes, hold on to your reigns!) horse meat – I also love Vegetarian cooking, salads, berries, fish, but as soon as anything becomes a ‘story of beliefs, rights and wrongs’, leaving aside the cultural and regional customs, it’s (/to me) a fake and misguiding story. There – I’m probably getting banned now – am I?! 😉
    PS: Were invited several times to African feasts, with grilled/cooked/broiled little beasts, grub, dubious creatures, parts of animals/sneaking/flying/crawling…. that’s when I couldn’t eat! I think camel, in comparison, would taste fantastic. I’m still teased several times per year by Kongolese friends about my refusing to eat their worms. Crickets however, grilled, mmmh.

  11. I noticed Camel milk soap at the store before…I opted to purchase Goat Milk soap… for me I just couldn’t bring myself to let someone profit off of Caleb’s relatives…I’ve become attached to his kind…
