This article introduces the names of appetite-killing foods and meals based on real facts and events.
 

Today I'm going to make unpleasant points about the topic which is quite tasty. Different dishes. Dishes which are appetite- killing for us, but delicious for others. The countries we live in are decisive in many things in our lives. It also includes the foods we eat. Our beliefs affect many things, even in our meals. When we look at world cuisine, we can see these effects.

 

Casu Marzu

The first offer on our menu will be Casu Marzu. It is a type of sheep milk cheese made on Sardinia Island in Italy. You can ask what is strange here. Interestingly, the cheese is rotted after being cooked and served with small worms and eaten with appetite. It is said that these little worms not just "walk" on the cheese, and even "greet" those at the table by jumping a few inches. Cheese that tastes sour is detrimental to human health and can lead to significant complications in the gastrointestinal tract.

 

Escamoles

 

Do you love caviar? What if it is ant caviar? Our next meal will be from Mexican cuisine made from large ant eggs, including a little salt, a little pepper, and some herbs. There are many varieties with different cooking rules. It is also known as insect caviar.

 

Bird's nest soup

 

There is a trendy variety of soup in China and Asia. The soup is made from the bird's nest. Yes, from the bird's nest. Mostly swallow nest is used to prepare the soup. Collecting these nests is not easy. The cost of the soup varies depending on the color of the nests. A cup of soup is offered for $ 10,000 in luxury restaurants. The specific taste of the food depends on the technology of the nest. The bird's nest is boiled after cleaning.

 

Fried tarantula

 

I don't know how much you know about tarantulas. Known as poisonous spiders, they are very dangerous. However, some people bring them up like pets. Some are fed with tarantulas. To be more precise, the tarantula is fried after being dipped in garlic soy sauce in Cambodian cuisine.

 

Sannakji

 

Those who do not like cooking can benefit from our next recipe. The name of the dish is called Sannakji. The preparation procedure is effortless. All you need is a long arm octopus. And the food is ready. Sannakji belongs to South Korean cuisine. You must be careful when eating this dish, as the suction cups on the arm pieces are still active when the meal is served and can stick to the gullet.

 

Millennium eggs - Centennial eggs

 

Although cooking this Chinese meal does not take a hundred years, it can last from two to three months. After storing ducks or chicken eggs in salt, clay, and ashes, the color changes to brown and green. According to the Chinese, the food is delicious. In general, Chinese cuisine includes roasted dog meat, monkey-brain dishes, all kinds of fried insects, as well as wines and drinks with live snakes and mice.

 

Mopane

 

The name of the dish comes from the Mopane tree. However, this dish is not made of wood. The caterpillars in the Mopane tree are dried and eaten. The caterpillars, which are rich in protein, belong to African cuisine.

 

Dishes made of crocodile meat

 

It is more common in Australian and African cuisine. The crocodile meat is said to be delicious. Nevertheless, it is unacceptable to eat animals that are at risk of depletion. Although the Animal Rights Association has taken some action, there are still some negative cases. In particular, the eating of dog and cat meat in China is always protested by animal lovers. Although some results have been achieved so far, the elimination process is still unrealistic.

 

Balut

 

I want to introduce another meal of Filipino cuisine. Balut is a meal made of 17-day-old duck eggs, with embryos inside. I think there is no need to comment further on this dish.

 

Fugu

 

This dish of Japanese cuisine is made of fugu fish. However, not everyone can cook it, as you need to be careful when cleaning fugu fish, which is poisonous. Only fangs are venomous. Sometimes the fishes are hermaphrodites, and when you are unable to distinguish it, the consequences can be catastrophic. Therefore, the Japanese government has taken the matter under control. Only exceptional cooks can prepare this dish. They are also licensed after two years of mastering this job with another master. Only after this, they are allowed to cook this meal. The Japanese love this meal so that the government is involved in this.

 

Arroz de Cabidela

 

It is one of the favorite dishes of people in Portugal and Brazil, which made from chicken and rabbit meat. First, meat is stored in vinegar. The animal's blood is also used in cooking, and the dish is served with rice.

 

Moose nose

 

This meal is made of moose nose and belongs to Canadian cuisine. The moose's nose is specially prepared.

 

Lutefisk

 

It is a delicious fish meal in Scandinavian countries. The preparation phase is exciting. Sharks are eaten after storing them in alkaline substances for a while. It is controversial how much useful and harmless the food is; leave aside its taste.

 

The appetite is under the teeth. Therefore, it is worth to be brave and taste different dishes. Bon Appetite!
