Bull Testicle Ceviche You’ll have a ball with this Latin American specialty.

“Safe and Tasty”To make cassareep, Guyanese people grate and squeeze bitter cassava to extract the juice. Eating bitter cassava raw is a death wish; it contains a compound that the human body converts into hydrogen cyanide. But boiling the juice and adding cinnamon, brown sugar, and cloves makes the sauce both safe and tasty.

Tokyo restaurant’€™s mega pasta is so huge they’€™ll pay you US$455 if you can eat it all by yourself Right now, the branch of the Stamina Taro Next restaurant chain in Tokyo’s Takadanobaba neighborhood is offering what it calls the Meaty Mega-mori Stamina Taro Napolitan Spaghetti, “mega-mori” being the Japanese phrase for “mega-sized” food. The restaurant is in no way kidding around with that descriptor, either, as the entree weighs a mind-blowing 3.7 kilograms (8.14 pounds).

Why Europe’s First Celebrity Chef Named His Dishes After the Rich and Famous   Escoffier made a habit of giving dishes the handles of people who, in their day, were virtual household names: An entire choir of opera singers’ names are to be found in Escoffier’s cookery books. The most famous examples are likely Melba toast and Peach Melba, for the Australian opera singer Nellie Melba, though there are hundreds of others. But why did he do it?

The Best Chili in All 50 States  

Longe “didn’t want to be a hot-dog guy.” What he wanted was to be a “bagel man.” The compromise? Sell bagels and cream cheese with a hot dog stuffed inside. And,… voila!… Le Seattle Dog ! Using a nearby bakery’s hand-rolled bialy sticks to accommodate the filling, Longe sold a fusion of cold, creamy spread and steamy, juicy sausage. And people loved it, maybe even more for the sense of place it imparted than its midnight munchies appeal. Sure, cream cheese makes tubular meat more likely to slip out of a bun, but despite the structural integrity problems, the union (which required both hands to eat) was a hit.

Mamajuana – This alcoholic drink has medicinal properties (and sometimes contains turtle penis).

In Cincinnati chili, ingredients like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, cumin, cocoa, and Worcestershire sauce give it a quality akin to a thin, spiced meat sauce. Naturally, ordering a plain bowl of sauce is ludicrous. As standard protocol, parlors place chili atop a steaming pile of spaghetti. This is called a two-way.

Spaghettieis –     Fontanella, the son of an ice cream parlor owner, recreated an iconic bowl of spaghetti, tomato sauce, and parmesan cheese by feeding vanilla gelato through a chilled spaetzle press. This device extruded thin strands of ice cream shaped like the German egg noodles it was designed to produce. Fontanella placed his ice cream “spaetzle” on a bed of whipped cream and topped it with strawberry “tomato” sauce and white chocolate “parmesan” shavings. A wafer or cookie on the side mimicked a piece of Italian bread.

    Who in their right mind, gets Avocado Eggrolls, let alone get them at a Cheesecake Factory?????

    Wanted to try out that Chilean sandwich, but Ralph’s was fresh out of cow rectums.

    I could substitute California asshole politicians- but I doubt they’d have the right flavor. Besides, most of ’em don’t smell too good.

    Where can I get me some of them deep fried speckled ‘possum sphincters?

    Two years in the Philippines introduced me to some interesting things, especially the local food. I worked long hours, so there were one of two restaurants I would frequent on my way home from work. One favorite served pork sisig. A plate sized oval wood platter would be brought out with a screaming hot cast iron plate resting on it loaded with hot peppers, garlic, ginger, onions and “pork”. The server would then crack an egg over the top and stir it up, cooking the egg almost instantly. Then, marble sized limes called calamansi were cut and the juice squeezed over the top of everything, then the final stir. A side of steamed rice was presented with along with a cold San Mig beer. Really good stuff. I finally found out the pork was hog brains and its soft jowl meat. Thereafter, I asked that tuna be substituted for the pork byproducts.

    Then he found out the tuna was really filleted skate wings.

    The late satirist Terry Prachett detailed many culinary delights in his novels sort of vaguely set in a town kind of like London in the 1860s. Menus might include Pork with beans, 2 pence. Pork from a named part with beans, 4 pence. A character well known for his hot sausages on a bun, when asked if they were pork, replies that well, he’s not sure about the pork, but they’re definitely pig.

    And if you need yer cow sphincters, in California, forget Ralph’s. Go to Vallarta. It’s a chain of Mexican groceries that are clean, good smelling, and have the most amazing meat counter. The hot food bar is wonderful, flavorful and inexpensive, but what really impresses is the meat cooler. It’s very long, and inside are clear plastic bins full of all of the parts of the animal you never knew people ate. If you want cow jowls, they’ve got it, it’s fresh and clean, and if you want 20 pounds they can do that. The meat guys speak English, perfect when you have a hankering for some lengua, or tongue.

    By the way, if you have one of those newfangled electric pressure cookers, they can render a cow tongue into luscious taco meat in no time at all!
