No offense to your heritage and all, but it looks like it's already been eaten.

(dunno, something about cold whitefish...)


Sure it doesn't look very appetizing, but after a rough night out,
this is the best cure. On Ash Wednesday (after too much Mardi Gras) it is
an old tradition to eat salty and sour herrings.

all of that probably pretty healthy, CJ, though not the primo idea.

erotic foods...let me see


oh dear silly me

I dont know if I mentioned this before but I once had a plate of squid in its own ink. It was the blackest shade of complete blackness, and delicious.

Until I saw in a mirror the state of my tongue and teeth.

has anyone tried DURIAN fruit? Ive been near the vendor booths and the smell is like rotten onions mixed with limburger. Ive never had the guts to try it , but Ive been told that, once past the smell,. it has a delightful almondy custard taste.

Noddy beat me to posting the link to the McPhee article. (One of his weaker articles, in my opinion, but I enjoyed it anyway.) I linked it on another thread, for an odd reason - the Moose thread, as he had mentioned mooseburgers.

Osso--

I suspect he recycled several old pieces on request for the New Yorker food issue.

If you just said you'd eaten rat lips, it'd prolly be considered pretty exotic. (Mmmmm, sausage.....)
