Not a joke, this is an actual recipe. My kids went to a Bedouin camp exhibit and everyone got a copy of this recipes(although not everyone got a taste). My translation into English. Who knows, next time you want to have a "different" type of barbeque, why not go for it?

I've seen a similar recipe - for elephant stew! Hare in my entree? No thanks! But then, I rarely turn down an invitation to dinner!

Guess what! A recipe like this really was printed in a cookbook. II found it on (a wonderful website dedicated to disproving/proving urban legends). Enter "stuffed camel" in the search bar. Very interesting reading!
