Re: GobsmackedEww, Xandra! That is horrific! The Chinese are not known for their refined food choices though, I must say. They eat absolutely anything
Re: GobsmackedThe Romans had some strange tastes too. Dormice in honey for one. But so did the Brits. One of the most horrid I encountered "first hand was " balut. Nasty. No way would I even try it.
Re: GobsmackedThat's horrible it would have made me cry, they seem an uncivilised race. I watch a programme called border force Australia and the stuff they try smuggle into Australia is horrendous and a serious threat to the country by bringing disease.
Re: GobsmackedThey are a strange race with strange and some very nasty habits. There's a few families of them up here and they are also members of my Leisure Centre. I hate they noise they make, they are always talking very loudly and fast to each other in their own language. That doesn't bother me as I'm not interested in their conversation but I wish they would lower their voices.....A lot. I am not the only one who feels like this either as they looks they get from some of the other members. sheeeze.
Re: GobsmackedI wondered was she actually so hungry that any "food" would do, is the consumption of live uncooked small creatures a cultural thing and wouldn't it have tasted horrible? Though too tiny to have hard beaks and claws.
Re: GobsmackedMy son went to China years ago. He emailed me photos of scorpions on sticks, rabbit heads, rats - all street food in China. This is where they eat dogs.....! Nothing is too horrible for them.
Re: GobsmackedMany cultures have odd eating habits including our own. I once went to a schoolfriends house for tea , they were having brains on toast or beans on toast. I didn't stay for either.
