Really Karen 😉 ? Weird Things to Eat 🙂 ?
Not sure I can follow that one. Firstly, I love to watch travel programs and this post would become much too long if I talk about all the weird things you could eat while travelling. Secondly, what is considered weird and what isn’t depends.
It depends on your life. I used to love eating sausages. I am from Germany, what can I say ;-). But then I delivered newspapers to a farm which as it happened sent off pigs for slaughtering every couple of months. Believe me, if you ever heard the sound of a pig being forced into a lorry to be transported for slaughtering you never touch a piece of pork or a sausage again. They know. They know exactly what is going to happen and they tell you. The screams are gutwrenching. It still haunts my dreams.
It also depends on where you come from. Many people in India believe that cows are sacred. They would never touch a piece of beef. Here I assume it is one of the most favourite meats. There are countries where their people don’t worry about eating insects, snakes or even snails but would you? I would if I’d be starving. But until then I keep with fruit, veg and bread 😉 .
It also depends on your personal taste and on age, I guess. There are things I would have considered weird for eating when I was younger: beetroot, celery and cheese for one. I am not sure if my change in taste has something to do with eating mainly vegetarian for nearly 10 years or if it is my age. But my tastes certainly have changed in that area.
And last but not least I have to mention cooking programs. Well, not the everyday cooking programs of course. But those of the travelling and the crazy kind. Rick Stein, for example, found a couple of strange things to eat in Denmark and Heston Blumenthal has a weird way of combining science and food. I am not sure I would touch either 😉
