Q: Would the Futurists approve of eating horse meat?

A. YES!

Finally, a group of artists who accept horse meat. In their cookbook, the Futurists laid out recipes for human and animal ingredients—one recipe calls for a banana tart with velvet or a woman’s flesh. Any edible was acceptable as long as it wasn’t pasta. “Spaghetti,” Marinetti would assert, “is no food for fighters.”

A. No. After protests earlier this year, horse-tartare was removed from the menu before it was actually served. M. Wells did, however, serve horse-bologna sandwiches through its pop-up shop at the Brooklyn festival Googa Mooga.
