Summary0004665: "Prefers to consume [animal]" not working properly
DescriptionIf a dwarf's preferences says "She prefers to consume [animal]", then eating a prepared meal made from meat of that type of animal doesn't influence the happiness gained from that meal. This is true both for an easy meal made from two stacks of the same type of meat and an easy meal made from one stack of the preferred meat and one stack of something else. The only time I've seen it make a difference was when I made a lavish meal from tripe, sweetbread, spleen and kidney of the same preferred animal.

The character nicknamed "TOAD" has a preference for giant toad, the only food available is giant toad meat, but she doesn't get any thought from eating the giant toad meat. You have to wait a while after loading the save for her to eat.

I'd add that this is still a problem in 44.12. The cause of the problem is the Thoughts and Preferences screen says 'prefers to consume $creature', but the game is looking for a $specific_part from that $creature. Only meals containing $specific_part from $creature will provide good thoughts and satisfy needs.
