OUT: anything alive...

I've always wanted to try qagh, the Klingon speciality ;D: Qagh is a dish of serpent worms, best when served live. In preparing the dish, the worms are fed diluted animal blood, which the worms find unappealing and will eat only when they are starving. Just before serving, the now ravenous worms are placed in a thick sauce. The worms eat the sauce, including an herb ingredient that is toxic to them and kills them in just a few minutes. Leftover qagh is served as a stew.

In Korea roasted beetles are consumed like popcorn at movie theaters. I didn't find the beetles particularly appealing (odd smell, dusty taste) but I ate them. I'll eat anything once. I had fried tree bark, sprinkled with sugar, while staying at the Chungdung Buddhist monastery atop Mari Mountain on Kangwa island off the coast of Korea.

My most recent disgusting food experience was a dish of Wellfleisch I ordered the last time we visited Bavaria. Mrs. Rock warned me against it but I'm both brave and a fool. Wellfleisch is boiled pig parts...the parts normal people don't want. The snout was....chewy.

Besides, that's only carrot & orange... that's 2 parts of your five-a-day...so, technically, if i have a second slice, that's 4/5 taken care of....now, if i get one more half-slice..... 0:)

Just roasted a fantastic organic, free range chicken. Smothered in butter, tarragon, a sumptuous Italian lemon, salt and pepper. Had a Romaine lettuce and tomatoes on the side. Will boil and simmer the carcass tomorrow to make some risotto stock.
Yes, we have no bananas

Wellfleisch is known around here as amourettes. I know it exists, but I've never met anyone who actually ate the stuff. I was beginning to think it was an urban legend... :D

For me, there is no other cake than fresh Carrot Cake.  8)

Me, I am eating some fresh, ripe Mango. Mmmmmmmmm.

George, is there an easy way to get all the flesh off the mango? I pull off the skin and end up with both hands dripping with delicious juice but hardly any flesh comes off that huge pit.  >:(

I feel your sticky pain.  ;D

I usually just buy it at a local store, where the staff seem to have the knack of it. Plus, I like it cold.  :)

Thank you, Bogey! It sounds and looks helpful but - the moment I start peeling, the juice already starts dripping. Look at the hands of the cook in the demonstration: Clean, dry! His peel comes off nice and neat; my peelings always have lots of flesh sticking to them! When I see those lovely globes in the produce section, maybe I should remember the difficulties of getting at the innards - and buy a papaya instead!

Bogey, thanks for posting that.  I'll have to give it a try the next time I buy mangos.  I'll admit, sometimes I avoid purchasing them because they're such a pain in the ass to prepare.

I had this for breakfast:



It was my first time trying steel cut oatmeal.  I was surprised at how much better it tastes than regular rolled oats. Of course it took about 45 minutes to make, so it's not going to be a daily breakfast item.

Maybe yours are a tad too ripe?

What a beautiful sounding name for such a thoroughly gross dish.

No legend, dude. It's real. Be afraid, very afraid  ;D
