Could you taste human flesh in a pie?

If human flesh/organs was baked in a pie and it had enough sauce/gravy, do you think you'd know? I'd like to think I would although perhaps not. These modern day Brazilian Sweeney Todds got away with it. http://www.dailymail.co.u...ng-flesh-pastries.html

    Of course you wouldn't, it's ridiculous to think that humans are in any way special and our flesh would have a drastically different taste than other animals'. Probably tastes a lot like any other red meat.
     
    Might taste slightly different from beef but then so would any other animal's and most people would buy it if you just said it was deer or something.

    Does anyone actually know what it tastes like? I mean, I imagine it's quite rubbery and stringy, although I have nothing to base that assumption on.

    You could always go get an extra long sunbed. Get really burnt and wait till you peel. Then collect said peelings, sauté in a bit of rapeseed oil and serve on brown toast. Simple and the flavours wouldn't be masked by herbs / strong oils etc. clarified butter would work too.

    Its for science and the quest for knowledge of course..

    Having never (to my knowledge) tasted human flesh before, i'm not sure if i'd  notice it, other than the meat not tasting like it usually does.

    Burning human flesh smells a little like pork, which isn't surprising as pigs tissue is very similar to ours.
     
    So I am guessing that it would taste a little bit like pork.
     
    But to recognise the taste in a pie you would have to have already knowingly eaten some human flesh beforehand.

    It tastes like a cross between pork and beef...

    The flavour of meat is dictated by the diet of the eatee, which is wht people say the likes of corn fed chickens are nicer etc, so I imagine my flesh would be like beef in guinness pie right now

    Some people know what it tastes like, there are still some cannibal tribes in the world and the odd criminal. By reports it tastes like any other red meat, because it kind of is like any other red meat. A little sweeter maybe, kinda like boar.
     
    There's not a lot chemically different between various meats. There's basically red meat, white meat and fish. Fish and red meat have some proteins in them that give their characteristic taste, while white meats don't have them and taste kinda bland. That's why so much stuff "tastes like chicken", because aside from a little flavour from the chicken's diet or fat, it kinda tastes like nothing. If you eat plain boiled chicken breast you get texture without flavour.
     
    To be honest I find the very idea that our flesh would be significantly different from other animals' at a structural level, especially from other large mammals, rather arrogant. We are not that special, we just have big brains for our size.

    After smelling people who have died in a fire I would say there is no smell like it. You can be doing overhaul on a fire after it is out out and when you come off your SCBA you can smell if someone has been cooked in the fire.
