Clarissa's recipe for Fox Pasta

You emailed in your droves during Tuesday's Daily Politics asking for Clarissa Dickson Wright's recipe for Fox Casserole. So here it is!

For Fox A La Clarissa:

THE DAILY POLITICS
Clarissa Dickson Wright and a fox

  • Take one fox. Skin it and gut it.

  • Hang the fox in running water for three days.

  • Cook with garlic, onion and tomato, as if you were cooking rabbit the Italian way: lay in a dish, cover, and stew for about an hour and a half.

  • I would probably cut the fox into halves, not quarters.

  • Serve with chestnut pasta, and for wine: a good Falerian.

It's not generally known that the Thais eat a lot of fox. It's the closest thing that Chinese, Thais and Malays can legally get to dog.

In fact, Manchester -- where Andrew was trying to take Margaret Beckett for dinner -- is one of the prime markets for selling shot fox to Thais.

There's also fillet of badger - most West Country pubs used to have badger ham on the bar - but that's another story.
