Good evening to those reading this right now! :)
***May find images disturbing***
Ok, so my homemade custard tarts are in the oven. Aka Pasteis de Nata. It’s a famous Portuguese dessert. Yes. I bake! Yum! This is what it looks like.
No no and another no….
It’s sheep’s heart, liver and lungs all minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, salt and stock. Simmers away in the stomach casing for about 3 hours. It’s seen as a savory pudding with a nutty texture……
Mopane worms is a proudly South African delicacy. Yum yum! Want some?
RAW BLOOD SOUP
A Northern Vietnamese dish. Usually raw blood from ducks, geese and sometimes pigs with peanuts and herbs on the top for that yummy twist! (insert green sick face now)
Chinese cuisine, which is basically the preservation of duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime and rice straw for several weeks or months at a time. It’s rotten eggs ok? With a crazy ponging smell!
Fancy some mare’s milk? It’s horse milk fermented for hours. It’s a sort of an alcoholic beverage thanks to the high sugar content it has compared to cows or goats milk. It’s been described as “fizzy and mouldy”!
It’s duck fetus. A nearly developed embryo, usually eaten with a spoon through a little opening in the top of the egg. It’s found in Vietnam, Philipenes, and Cambodia. Usually served with beer! Hmmmm. Apparently it’s an aphrodisiac! (why doesn’t that surprise me?)
hmmm. Crab like, crispy and chewy all in one. Yuk!
It’s so sad to see how these exotic animals kept in horrible conditions. People in China are known to eat it raw! They tie the monkey up in a device where it’s head is kept still and with a hammer and chisel, it’s head is opened up and the brain is eaten before it dies. :(
If you’d like to try some ratapooey, then North Korea is the place to go baby!
Ok so in western countries OX penis is dried and then sold as dog treats!!! In the Oriental side of the world it’s cooked, steamed or deep fried. Better yet, some have it raw! Wtf is wrong with these people? I’m sorry to say that, but it’s so not cool! Haha
And now, the worst…….
DOG AND CAT MEAT
Many Asian people believe westerners are hypocrites for saying that it’s wrong to eat cat or dog meat when we kill calves, cows, pigs, sheep and chicken. We not denying that, the problem is in the killing methods. It’s absolutely horrific what they endure! They’re skinned alive most if the time. The cats are sometimes cooked alive. They suffer! I don’t see how people can do this! It’s terrible! I will never ever go to any country that supports this! It’s the same countries that skin animals alive for fur. It’s bad of me to say that, as I’m sure not the whole of China supports or does this. If you can, sign petitions against this!
Humans have exploited so much from the earth. Can’t we just become “normal” again?
Anyway, I think all these foods are nasty! I wouldn’t eat them! Not even if I was promised a zillion bucks! Sis!
So what’s for dinner!?
