One of the most beautiful animals. Just look at her.
Pigeon eggs by the looks of it. And now I can hear you ask how I would know that ? Well…. remember, I’m Belgian. We have a lot of pigeons there. Loads of them. Not that it means that it’s a dirty country, because pigeons are called “flying rats” too often here.
But there are 2 main reasons I can think of right now:
- they are a good sport
- they taste very good
Let me explain a bit more: they are a very good sport. Pigeon racing is a big thing in Belgium. And for some reason the Japanese picked it up, so prices for the good lines are …. let me put it this way: I could buy a house with the money.
And the other reason speaks for itself. You will not see it in Sweden or maybe anywhere outside France, Belgium and the Netherlands. But I remember from when I was a kid and went to a restaurant, the pigeons were not lesser poultry than duck or geese. It was more seen as a delicatessen…. The closest I will get to it here is probably as a road kill from a bus or truck, and heated on the black tarmac on a hot summer day.
Because when we got there a few hours later, it was almost packed and sunny.
From our first day in Norrköping. It was outside a design store. And how lucky I was I didn’t bring my wallet. I could have bought everything in there…
