* Creator/RoaldDahl's short story "Pig" in the collection ''Kiss Kiss'' is about this. Dahl also referenced the trope in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', when the Oompa-Loompas [[BlackComedyCannibalism gleefully sing about how Augustus Gloop is going to be mixed into Wonka's fudge]] (though it should be noted that Augustus comes out mostly okay in the end).

And ''yet again'' in ''Literature/TheWitches'', with an offhanded mention that American witches enjoy turning children into hot dogs so their parents will eat them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the InGameNovel "The Red Kitchen Reader" describes the most delicious meal that a world-renowned chef ever experienced: a roast that he found in a hidden kitchen under an abandoned house as a child, which taught him "that food can and should be sublime". The description matches an assassin {{cult}} lair that has a vampire on staff, so the trope is strongly implied.

In short... it's anything including beef, lamb, goat, pork, horse, feral pigeon, dock rat, unlucky cat, random dog and/or Don't Ask. For instance, when Tyrion has his hired sword Bronn kill an attempted blackmailer in the area, Bronn comments that the man will end up as stew. Tyrion is later squicked out when he meets a mercenary for whom brown is a TrademarkFavoriteFood.

After a while, the head became very decomposed, so they disposed of it by throwing it in a cooking pot.
