    Lettuce, what else? ;)

    I just checked a book I worked on that has a recipe for curi' or cuy (2 different Latin American names for guinea pig). Unfortunately, no serving suggestions. :( But with a tablespoon of chopped garlic for 2 servings (from a 1 1/2 to 2-pound guinea pig, maybe you just need something that will counteract the garlic more than add to the pig.

    My exact sentiments when I first read the topic!
    I think it'd catch on quickly if it were served in fillets.
    Not many people want a rodent staring back at them.

    At the club where I chef some of our coworkers are from equador and they eat papas con qui { potatoes and roast guinea pig seasoned with cumin , garlic s&p } They usually serve this during the holidays. They tell me that everyone back home raises them in there homes for consumption. I guess it is like a farmer raising chickens or rabbits . :chef:
