I’m open to trying different foods, just yesterday I had beef tongue tacos which is a truly authentic Mexican dish.  I know of only one Mexican restaurant that serves them.  I’ve had wild alligator soup when visiting New Orleans.  I’ve had beef heart.  I’ve eaten squid, oysters, and sushi.

A few things I won’t eat.  Insects, spiders, liver (I mean it’s the garbage pit of the body so why do we eat it?) and testicles of any species (because that is just plain wrong) for example.  I don’t think many of us would eat hot dogs if we truly knew what was in them (I couldn’t find a more detailed description other than “meat”).

I’ve found something I’d add to the list of not eat for me: pork brains in milk gravy.  To me this doesn’t even qualify as food.  Who in the world thought of this?  “Yeah, you know I think I’d like some pig brains… and you know what would go well with them – my grandmother’s milk gravy.”  What? 

Also check out the cholesterol content per serving.  Yikes!

Would you eat this?

Testicle Cookbook Update: William Jacobson shared something that is infinitely worse than this, and get this – they have a cookbook for it!  The Testicle Cookbook: Cooking With Balls by Serbian chef Ljubomir R. Erovic.  One review describes this unusual cookbook.

The electronic cookbook contains more than 30 recipes for testicle dishes, ranging from a rustic testicle pizza to a more refined dish of testicles with bechamel sauce. Erovic, a self-described “testicle chef,” also offers essential demonstrations on how to prepare testicles, from peeling (hey!) to slicing (ouch!).

This is just plain wrong.

2nd Update: Andrew Faris linked to “this little gem.”
