Food is the most basic pleasures of life. We all eat, and caffeine and playing Chatroulette can handle your own and other necessities, you will have great food stuck. And for any mundane activity there are those who seek adventure. In the food sector, most likely to meet a little Tabasco. Other need for the promotion of taboos and indulge in strange envelope further. For these people, only one still alive is enough to stimulate the consumption of animals. Today we will study these malformations dinner dishes, Or lunch. Or whatever.
Casu marzu (Italy)
Let us ease into this one. Many people eat cheese made from sheep’s milk. In Italy Sardinia Island, they would rather Pecorino. They also like it sent a very specific way. Rather than fermented cheese, they just go on and give it to invite the party entered the maggot “rotten” territorial advance. Cheese flies can lay eggs, hatch, and began chewing its own way through. They began to break the fat, which makes the cheese is very soft. So soft, Pecorino started “The Scream” (the locals to digest fats as liquid leak out).
When it’s time consuming evil cheese, it’s time for decision. Some go to the full experience and eat, maggots and all the ribbons, some crispy bread, not camouflage the taste of live larvae. For the timid, but also in a sealed bag, leading to loss of oxygen maggots and began to launch their own cheese from up to 15 cm of cheese. That is, the length of their bodies 18 times and you jump the same 10-story building. When the bags to stop dead in its sweet pitter-patter beat maggots thrown, cheese is a certified fly free baby.
The maggots also provides a cool, pre-industrial expiration date. If the maggots died of natural causes, cheese has been toxic, so the idea behind eating it, but it is still infested. People who complete snacks and insects, they can look forward to the opportunity for the surviving larvae in the intestine and stomach to set up shop. Facts have proved that living in rotting cheese means they are pretty used to the acidic environment, and become a nuisance they are more willing to try maggots mean drill into the duodenum.
When it comes to seafood, freshness is the phrase pays. The sooner you can get these animals from their underwater home to your plate, the tastier they are. It is also to pay good money to see the eyes, and their choice of dinner, lobster from the tank.
Oysters fresh ideas onto the logical conclusion. They must be cooked or eaten while they are still alive, otherwise you can look forward to an evening bowing to the porcelain god. Although they can be boiled, grilled, or prepared to take any form, is the most enjoyable way is half-shell. This means that half of the shell is cut or “peel”, and they are still alive expose sweet, sweet organs. All kinds of sauce or juice can be added to the gelatinous mass, but the idea is to enter your stomach, mollusks died before the law. Obviously, the best way is just pick them up and slurp the bloody things, like a two prostitutes.
Surprisingly, oyster is good for you. They have many minerals, you usually can only hate rich breakfast cereal, as well as vitamin B12, which helps you keep a clear and blood. Eating raw (sometimes called the “shooter”) to retain the most nutrients. Hippies and even hard to say no, because oysters are almost always the lack of sustainable harvesting and the ability to feel pain.
When it comes to alcohol and eating animals alive, South Korea (including the taste, the North and South) among the top competitors. A popular food, because you can buy popular car in the street in some places, as it is known as live octopus Sannakji.
This concept is quite low-tech. Small, live octopus is cut into pieces, served on a plate of peristalsis. Is usually moderate and add oil or sauce. Sometimes, they do not even cut interest rates, and only serve the whole friggin ‘octopus. The strange thing is, it seems that when you go to something to eat you alive, “rules” or “ritual” is not strong teams tons.
And if you’re right now thinking: don’t octopi have suction cups on those tentacles? Well you’d be right (and wrong, because octopuses is the correct pluralization, not octopi).The tentacles do in fact pose a choking hazard, especially as you’d also probably be downing a fair bit of potent “soju”, a rice booze popular in Korea. While they encourage you to chew well, many opt to feel the meat squirm as it goes down their throat.
If you are thinking: there are no tentacles of the octopus sucker? So you are right (and wrong, because the diversity of octopus is right, not the octopus). The tentacles do in fact pose a choking hazard, especially as you’d also probably be downing a fair bit of potent “soju”, a rice booze popular in Korea. While they encourage you to chew well, a lot of options feel uncomfortable because it’s meat to their throats.
Drunken Shrimp (China)
To see a drunken shrimp in menu may lead to some delicious dishes like barbecue bourbon shrimp you want. See it on this list but it may make you feel a kind of intoxication of some dwarf casserole. We are sad writer, which is closer to the former than the latter.
Chinese dishes, including a drunken shrimp big bowl of shrimp, spices, and spirits so-called white, about 40-60% alcohol volume. Not cooked shrimp, although they hope to get some kind of cleaning before the dish is still alive throw. Alcohol dizziness little guy, so that they slow, but easier to handle.
There are places to be killed or cooked shrimp and other versions of the first set, but in all likelihood, dead shrimp was ordered to get in front of your friends at a bar the same mild wings. Not worth asking.
In Japan, a similar dish called Odori ebi exists that substitutes sake as the liquor of choice. In addition, Japanese people are concerned about the one-upmanship; they will only eat baby shrimp.
We are just saying what the Japanese? Ah, just as the key to good fresh seafood, so it is important for all manner of Japanese sushi. However, when it comes to eating raw fish, the problem is potentially more disease and fewer flavors. Nothing to cover up the taste (for better or worse), only the quality and preparation issues. Spend less time in a dead or frozen meat, the more tender and delicious it is. Or, some people will believe you.
Thus, the real test of the main sashimi (raw fish flakes) cook ikizukuri, literally “ready to live” translation. They work 24 hours so the meat on the table, but it comes from animals (usually fish, shrimp, squid, etc.) are still alive, convulsions. They not only take time, and do the right under the cut of meat, they also need to leave a sufficient supply of organs and nerves dinner stars extend their lives.
The whole process is quite intense. Some fish in the debate on whether it is cognitive and on the table. Some people think that, even if they twitch and the heart beat, they have to a large sea of blue in the sky. However, this practice continues, mainly due to this case, it makes the future look more humane things.
Ying Yang Fish (China/Taiwan)
So maybe you do not want your fish raw material, because this is serious, but you go to seafood restaurants, we mentioned earlier, tired. Most of them are nothing but a fraud: you choose your lobster, they take a back up, cook, and a guy threw a frozen tank you choose to come back when you leave. You can never be sure in the end really fresh food in the restaurant.
That is, unless they are willing to serve you some of the half-real half-dead zombie monster types of semi half of the students. This is, of course, not in Taiwan, mainland China, where the origin of fish dishes British custody ah, we always assume is an attempt to destroy deep-fried.
Going to let that one in. It’s like watching the Spanish Inquisition, but with less robe, betrayed the expression of more fish sink. It is said, the restaurant has been working with people question their food fresh and a lot of trouble. After some hard things can only become Asia’s most brutal of scientists who can answer their critics with a resounding: “Fresh? Fresh!? We will tell you fresh!”
And if you want to know, that’s not you see the blood drive. The fish is served with a delightful sweet and sour sauce, because the blood is only strange
