Not if you ask my kids. Neither one had any interest in Sophie.
If it was possible to determine that it was sourced ethically, I'd give giraffe meat a try. Maybe if I ever make it to Johannesburg. The only other "exotic" meats I've had occasion to try were kangaroo and crocodile, they were both quite tasty. Oooh, and apparently there's a butcher in the St Lawrence Market that sells kangaroo (and crocodile... and camel?) meat! I know where I'm shopping the next time I have a bbq for the guys.

I did wonder if the lions killed at Longleat would be fed to the giraffes. Would seem sort of symmetrical.

'Like veal' according to Frank Buckland. He was less complimentary about elephant's trunk, porpoise head, and earwigs.

I too would give giraffe a try if it was sourced ethically. In fact I'm pretty much up for any food adventure I can find.
I live in a small mountain town in British Columbia, Canada, and I can get Kangaroo, Crocodile, Camel, Emu, Ostrich, Wild Boar, Python, Goat, Bison, and a bunch of other meats at the regular grocery, and the meat market has caribou, bear, elk, moose, deer, antelope, etc. So far I've enjoyed every one of those I've tried. Lately I've been eating a lot of duck and quail eggs. Yum.
I'm just as adventurous with fruits and vegetables and am no stranger to the durian, cherimoya, cupuaçu, mangosteen, etc.
