Unusual foods in China
There is a saying in China that "we eat anything with four legs. Apart from the table".
This really sums up the differences in attitudes to food from people around the world. What is acceptable to eat in one place is considering degrading or unacceptable in another, but very little food is wasted in China which is admirable.
