I 'heart' exotic flavors

Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean, gutted a freshly slaughtered seal, pulled out its raw heart, and ate it to demonstrate her support for the traditional seal hunt in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.

My boss thought it would make a great blog entry and I have to agree. (Thanks Louise!) Would you eat a heart? How high is your food tolerance?


  1. Pretty low. Wouldn't eat a heart.

  2. Yeah, generally organs aren't my strong suit.

    I had a tough time with that fetus egg from Charlie's Burgers too. I'd "try" anything though. Like they say with children, "just one bite."

  3. i think i would try it, granted it wouldnt be straight from a freshly killed seal, still dripping with blood. If it was cooked I think I would definitely give it a go.

  4. Alright, it's out next delicacy. Fried hearts with shallots. :)
    Sounds delicious already.
