ADVENTURES IN FINE EATING—SQUIRREL.

ADVENTURES IN FINE EATING—SQUIRREL. I had a memorable dinner in Jefferson City, Missouri some thirty years ago. A lawyer invited me to his home for “pot luck.” It turned out to be quite special.

I told my mother—falsely—that the squirrel was served with the tail on the side, and she was suitably shocked. Now this article reports that squirrel is a trendy new food in England, with television chefs and upscale restaurants featuring it.

    Marion: Oh, Philip, no.
