In response to reindeer tongues, written by P. Bingham on February 23, 1998 at 22:11:26
These were very expensive luxury items that had to be imported and would not generally be served but for a very special gathering as they did not generally pop up in informal gatherings. I've seen references to these many times and always for very special dinners, a state dinner, for instance. There really are Laplander reindeer in Norway. I have never seen any references saying that they were not real. However, there were many dishes that were faux, as sometimes in turtles, but they called that mock turtle soup. But at a state dinner, George IV (or was he still just Prinny) served the real thing at considerable expense. sorry I can't help you more than that.
