One would think that in Peru the celebrated Guinea Pig Festival is a tribute to the the little mite who is feted and dressed in regal tiny outfits. The main attraction of the show will actually be the main course. The strange festival turns into a food orgy of guinea pig as the rodent ends up as the delicacy on Peruvian plates. The native Andes rodent has always been a main source of food for many people in Peru. The meat tastes like rabbit or a bit like dark chicken meat.
