Balut and Durian we're two of the most difficult.


I know you don't think of yourself as equals to fertilized eggs and potentially-lethal-stink-fruit.

I had it in a shake once. It tasted like paint and onions to me-not the worst thing I could imagine but I didn't drink the whole thing. It wasn't anywhere near as bad as some of the czechsinthe I tried up at RMGH '11.

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

To my simple mind, some of these things began as some rich idiots trying to impress other rich idiots, to paraphrase Douglas Adams. Think KoS, when viewing other vile offerings. I've enjoyed a variety food from many parts of the world, and from a variety of sources within the plant, fungal, & animal kingdoms, but calling it an exotic cocktail will not make horse cum any more appetizing, than giving freaking head to a horse, because it IS the same freaking thing. If you see a difference, your eyes are bullshitting you.
To eat an animals' genitals is not letting protein go to waste, but to consume an animals sexual or anal secretions is just (& this is just my humble and simple minded $.02), vile.

And to think I was of simple mind and just a meat and potato kind of guy. I am.

Your mind is a powerful tool. It can heal you or make you sick. But can it make a good cocktail?

I know I can make a bad cocktail. The voice in my head said so. ;)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I have known some very wealthy folks, and it is almost a sport of one upmanship to show each other increasingly rare, impractical, frivolous, and expenisve things, be it audio/video, food, cars, pens, watches, or booze.

I lack the brains to make the money to buy the ingredients for a good cocktail. But I strive to one day get there.

But I will steer clear of horse cum, whale puke, and and cat shit. :)

Eggs are good for you, for the obvious contents. The fact that it comes out of a chicken's ass is what makes egs so notoriously dangerous.

As for fish eggs, tried them and hated them, and they do apply to the silly expenisve things many people eat because thay are what rich people eat. I understand many do eat fish eggs because the genuinely like the, more power to them. But I bet a good percentage of fish egg eaters eat them, because that is what they think rich people do.

Yup, I agree with that. Darned clowns.

Evan, I agree with that, as illustrated in my previous post, which I paraphrased here for convenience.

Miguel, with no offense intended, I think your opinions are close-minded and presumptuous.

The fact that you eat chicken eggs because they are healthful doesn't exempt them from your statement.

As for fish eggs, there are many more uses and variations of them other than caviar. Eggs, egg sacks and roe from dozens of species of marine life are used in multiple cuisines all over the world. I'd venture a guess that there are many more people who eat them because it is their culinary tradition as opposed to being viewed as luxury items. In many countries, they aren't delicacies, they are staples. Botargo is a perfect example.

Here is a quick list of just some of the countries that use roe. You'll very quickly see that in some instances, certain types of roe are most definitely considered delicacies, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that a 'good percentage' of them are.

Just because you don't like roe doesn't mean that anyone else who eats them is frivilous or pretentious.

On the roe topic, uni is one of the tastiest things on earth, luxury or not.

The issue with salmonella and eggs is that if chickens are kept in (literally) shitty conditions, there's a much higher chance of contamination than if the chickens are able to lay their eggs in a different location from where they crap, among other things...keeping them penned in a way that allows for eggs and crap to reside in the same location is the real problem.

I know in many parts of Asia, various animal sperm is used in a number of dishes, especially soup. If it has a good flavor, and isn't dangerous, does it matter, especially once it's cooked? Raw meat and blood are both kinda yucky, but that wouldn't keep me from eating a prepared steak or blood pudding.

So nasty, it's illegal to import into the U.S. Paint yourself blue, worship trees and whip it up at home, but most of those things are probably against the law as well.

"the law is a ass—a idiot."

I can't believe the durian haters in this place. I really liked it. Creamy, custard-like, with just a hint of Vidalia onion.

I liked the flavor, but it smells like the the juice on the bottom of a downtown dumpster.

A local Asian market here also sells whole, frozen durian, and I am still tempted on occasion to give it a try.

It can't be worse than haggis, can it?

Actually, yes. Yes it can.

I got the frozen durian, thawed it outside, and ate it outside. It was not nearly as gross as I had expected.

Ah, you cheated; you have to try it fresh. That will be as gross as you expected.

I do like rocky mountain oysters. I don't think I'd like giving head to a bull though.

I can guarantee you that I am not that ambivalent about it.

eggs dont come from a chickens ass. They come from its vent (vagina)

Chickens don't have external vaginas either, they have a cloaca (vent), which is their only posterior orifice. It serves the purposes of intestinal, reproductive, and urinary function. So really, eggs come out of a chicken's ass/twat/pee-hole.
