Cuy - From the hamster wheel to the frying pan
Heather is enjoying one of the specialties of Peru. Cuy, or Guinea Pig, is considered a delicacy, and I think Heather agrees. HMM, HMM, Good!
"Cuy, alternately called Cobayo or conejillo de indias is a guinea pig or cavy. The taste is compared to rabbit, thought delicious, and though difficult to accept for people in other countries who regard guinea pigs as pets, the cuy is a staple of Andean cuisine. They are called "cuy" for the sound they make cuy, cuy."
