Beppe Bigazzi, who’s been a star of the popular Italian cooking show La Prova del Cuoco for ten years, has been suspended indefinitely for telling viewers how tasty cooked cat can be. “I’ve eaten it myself and it’s a lot better than many other animals,” he said while discussing casserole of cat, a dish he said was famous in his home region of Tuscany. He did advise viewers that if they’re going to try making it, the meat should be “soaked in spring water for three days” before being stewed. That’s ridiculous! Everyone knows cat’s much better when braised, though it’s a lot of trouble since you have to cook it nine times.
