This is the most recent infamous incident about eating cats in Italy.  "Beppe Bigazzi, a 77-year-old food writer and ten-year veteran guest on the Italian cooking show La Prova del Cuoco, was dropped from the show after offering up a recipe (kinda) for stewed cat--a "succulent dish," in his words, and a classic preparation from his home in Valdarno, Tuscany."
