Whale Recipe Found Lacking
Letter to the editor in chief
Dear Sir, I am extremely disappointed that your recipe for Whale Stew is completely inaccurate and wasted a good whale. Having obtained at great expense and difficulty a Right Whale of around 105 tons and then added all the other ingredients it ended up just being boiled whale with a minimal garnish of vegetables, not a stew at all.
Furthermore having invited 347,161 people we perhaps made our servings too large at about 1 lb per person leaving nearly 100,000 people without food. That is 100,000 very disappointed people who were promised a delicious Whale Stew. Having been through this dreadful experience perhaps you could look at your recipe again.
Should the recipe be one 10.5 ton (ten and a half) Whale such as a large Minke which would have been much easier to obtain and allow a much more manageable event with around 38,000 people (assuming around 1 lb portion size)?
