    Gulf Coast "Bizarre Foods"

    I don't know if anyone but me watches this show on the Travel Channel, but tonight's episode takes place on the Gulf Coast. Normally he's outside of the U.S. This guy eats some highly unusual things.


    "Andrew is putting the top down as he takes a slow cruise across America's Gulf Coast in hopes of filling up on everything from pig guts to water rodents and raccoons. It's a journey filled with soul and seasoned with Cajun favorites."


    Bizarre Foods show

    There are very few things that Andrew eats on that show that I at least wouldn't try.

    I love that show.

    So do I, I've met him a couple of times and he really does eat those things. Did you see him eat the guinea pigs in Ecuador?

    I would have had to draw the line at the fertilized duck eggs in the Phillippines, though.

    As long as it was safe to eat, I'd try horse tartare, it's just meat. And I'd try the guinea pig too, as long as someone hadn't named it Fluffy or anything first.

    I agree with you, I could hardly watch it.


    For some reason, this didn't bother me though. What say you, Norm? Could you do it?

    I can't say that any of those items are among those that I choose to incorporate into my regular diet, however, far be it from me to call them weird. Let's just say that as a Yankee, I may have less of an appreciation for traditional Gulf Coast cuisine as someone born and raised in that area.

    I've had chitterlings but I've not had nutria, beaver, or raccoon. Or possum.

    I've had all of them but nutria and opossum but none are something that I would eat again. I'll try anything once but none of these twice (the coon was not all that bad but they are so smart and funny I feel kinda bad eating one.)

    Oh, you know that I love crawfish! I'm not fond of raw oysters, but I love them cooked.

    I'll try anything once as well, the only thing that gave me pause was the nutria. And as for the coon - if they were that smart they wouldn't get caught.

    If my upcoming weekend plans don't change, I'll be having bison and ostrich for dinner. I've had ostrich a few times, but never bison. This restaurant is the same place I had kangaroo.
