Last night before turning out the lights my husband and I watched “Bizarre Foods” on The Travel Channel. I had never seen this show before and have to say by the time it was over I headed to the bathroom to take a couple of Tums.
The host of the show is Andrew Zimmern. Andrew travels the world, tasting the most unique, traditional fare he can find. He is game for anything and knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source. This guy has an iron stomach and dishes up the unimaginable!
Last night he was in Morocco eating intestines, a pancreas, eye balls, ear fat, cheeks, and all sorts of other revolting things. At one point he ate some meat that had been surrounded by mounds of lard that apparently is a favorite among Moroccans for breakfast. Zimmern was so disgusted by the apparent odor that he could barely chow down on it. Then to top it off he takes a second sampling barely getting that helping down. I said to my husband, “I wonder how many times they have to stop filming so he can go vomit.” It was utterly disgusting, however we both continued to watch.
I can’t even stomach the thought of eating tongue or herring let alone what Andrew Zimmern is devouring. I’d love to hear what your thoughts are if you’ve seen this show or when you view it. If you’ve sampled something disgusting in your past please share it with us.
