On that note, a great show I saw on the Travel Channel this weekend:

"Bizaare Foods" with Andrew Zimmern

He really does seem to genuinely enjoy eating this stuff.

I'd eat bugs. I hear the big tip is to fast them for several days before eating so that their guts are cleared out.

One of his shows he was doing a tour of the Asian countries and he was eating allllll kinds of stuff from frog hearts to bugs to tiger penis drinks. Then he tried durian and almost threw up.

I had not seen the one on durian. Odor description from Wikipedia:

Quote:
While Wallace cautions that "the smell of the ripe fruit is certainly at first disagreeable", more recent descriptions by westerners can be more graphic. British novelist Anthony Burgess writes that eating durian is "like eating sweet raspberry blancmange in the lavatory."[16] Travel and food writer Richard Sterling says:
...its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia.[17]
Other comparisons have been made with the civet, sewage, stale vomit, skunk spray and used surgical swabs.[18] The wide range of descriptions for the odour of durian may have a great deal to do with the wide variability of durian odour itself. Durians from different species or clones can have significantly different aromas...
Boy, and I thought cultivating a taste for hops was hard...
