[OFF TOPIC] Food & Drinks Thread

Recommended Posts

Well, in a country were insects are part of diet of certain regions, it's difficult to categorize something as weird.

 

IMO, among the most weird (or I rather say, disgusting) are Tacos de nana (pork's uterus) and Maguey worms

And for @heywoodu, who I know is not fond of corn I have something worse: Huitlacoche, a fungus that grows in corn, considered a delicacy in Mexican cuisine.

in Italy there's nothing considered "weird"...

 

even if the question about insects is still open, anything else is normally used in our food (in certain Regions more than others, where people might look a bit more "conservative" -I'm one of those really skeptical about most of this kind of things)...

 

even one of the most famous and appreciated dishes of the Northern Italian cuisine, the "Risotto alla Milanese" is made with cows' bone marrow...:evil:

 

but especially in Tuscany and Lazio (Rome's Region) you can often find their typical dishes like "Trippa" (the cow's stomach and esophagus with their connecting parts) or "Coratella" (sheep's heart, liver, lungs and spleen all together) or many others (in Valdaosta there's a dish made with pork's mamels :hyper:)...

 

I guess you need some help to translate it, but here's a list (with photos and description) of the top 15 dishes made with unusual parts of the animals in the Italian cuisine...

it's very, very local (Sardinia only)...

 

and hopefully there are very, very few lovers of that left...

 

p.s. to me, it's more than disgusting and should be prohibited under any law and circumstance...:evil:

The Dutch Wikipedia says this 'cheese' is seen as an afrodisiac. How does that work? It's so goddamn disgusting that you just want to fuck the living maggots out of your body or something?

Nothing too weird that I can remember now. There are dishes made with almost every part of the cow, pork, chicken, etc but I guess that is common to many other countries.

Nothing with unusual animals like insects or frogs. At least not in the region where I live which would be where the "mainstream" argentine cuisine is dominant (maybe a tribe in the north eats insects but I have no idea).

well, frogs are well known in the Italian cuisine, especially in the Northern Regions (alongside the course of the River Po)...

"Risotto con le Rane" (risotto with frogs) is really famous in those areas...

https://www.cucchiaio.it/ricetta/ricetta-risotto-rane/

and believe it or not, it's really good...

also fried frogs or "rane in umido" (basically, frogs with tomato sausage) are 2 well established ways to eat them...

After reading a little, this genuinely seems like one of the most disgusting kinds of food* I've ever heard of.

 

*food --> things that are actually meant to be eaten
