World’s Fishiest Wedding Cake

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’m all for originality, but replacing a wedding cake with a smelly tuna seems a bit too much. But in a country like Japan, where people fight each other with neon lamps, anything goes.

A wedding-planning company in Kanagawa has been offering tuna fish instead of traditional wedding cakes for over ten years now. The couple you see below has opted for a 100 kg-heavy BigEye Tuna as treat for their guests, but clients have a wide range of packages to choose from, depending on the number of guests.

I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to the cake when attending a wedding, and this tuna doesn’t look very delicious.

Golden Kaiser Schnitzel Comes with Real Gold

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Real gold leafs and white truffles make the Golden Kaiser Schnitzel the world’s most expensive schnitzel.

A German restaurant in Dusseldorf decided to laugh at the economic crisis and offer its customers one of the most expensive treats on Earth. The Berger Strasse restaurant has been serving its golden delight for about three years, but only recently began to promote it.

Thomas Huber, the establishment’s manager, said the gold has no taste and therefore ads nothing to the flavour of the schnitzel, but the white Italian Alba truffles are a whole other matter. At 5,000 euros per kilo, these exclusive ingredients set the Golden Kaiser Schnitzel’s price tag at 150,euros ($242).

So far around 100 golden schnitzel’s have been sold.

Century Egg – Would You Eat One?

21 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I love a good omelet and I’ve been known to gobble down boiled eggs from tme to time, but Century Eggs? No freaking way!

Known also as preserved egg, hundred-year egg, thousand-year egg or thousand-year-old egg, the Century Egg is a Chinese delicacy used in many traditional dishes. Fresh duck, chicken or quail eggs become Century Eggs after weeks, sometimes months of preservation in a mixture of clay, ash, lime, salt and rice. The process of “cooking” Century Eggs is believed to date back 600 years, when someone apparently found some old eggs preserved in a pool of slaked lime. Upon tasting them, he decided to produce some more, but this time with some added salt.

After the preservation is complete, the hull mixture and egg shell are removed to reveal the now dark-brown egg-white and a dark-green, creamy and pungent yolk.  It’s the alkaline that raises the ph of the egg from 9 to 12 or more and gives it a strong smell of ammonia and sulfur.

Century Eggs are consumed either raw, or as ingredients in other Chinese foods. There are those who associate them with smelly cheese, pungent but really delicious. Sadly there are others (myself included) who just can’t get past the disgusting colors and smell.

Puppy, Kitty and Rat Meats Online

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Because puppy, kitty and rat steaks taste so damn good.

During one of my daily internet surfing sessions, I stumbled on one of the weirdest sites I’ve ever seen. It’s called Rat Beef.com and it’s an online rat butchery (doesn’t that sound delightful). Sure, we’ve featured photos of cooked field rats before, but to see them commercialized online struck me as a tad bizarre. RatBeef states their rats are bred and raised in 100% natural conditions and they even offer a few cooking recipes.

While I was browsing the site’s pages, looking for some suiting pics, I found Rat Beef has two sister (to be read siNIster) sites, Puppy Beef and Kitty Beef which sell…well, you can guess. I know these types of meats are very popular in some Asian countries, but to see them sold on websites containing the words puppy and kitty is just ridiculous.

In case you don’t believe this is odd in anyway, at least you know where you can buy your exotic meats from now on.

Is this what they mean by brain food?

The disgusting-looking brain cupcakes you see below were baked by a girl named Pamela, back in August, but I just discovered them today and couldn’t help but share with you guys. Delicious red velvet raspberry cake, cream cheese frosting and chocolate brains, created with moulds, make up some of the weirdest deserts I’ve ever seen.

Meat Water – Dinner in a Bottle

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Damn, I’m so thirsty, I’d kill for a bottle of Buffalo Wings right now. Whew, thank God for Meat Water, right?

The best way to describe Meat Water drink is “dinner in a bottle”. This high efficiency survival beverage brings you all your favorite foods in liquid form. that’s right why bother cooking Italian meatballs, pizza, fried oysters or whatever else you like, when you can just drink them out of the bottle?

Apparently, Meat Water is perfect for athletes because it allows them to cut down on exercing and eating time and allows them to enjoy themselves. Of course that doesn’t apply to me because, one: I’m not an athlete, and two: I actually enjoy myself when eating.

Forget Wii Sports, How About A Game of We Pray?

8 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Mass: We Pray, you could say it gets you closer to religion in a virtual way. Made my point and did it rhyming, thank you very much.

First of all, this is no joke folks, Mass: We Pray is a real gaming system aimed to help you and your family experience the joy of Sunday Mass anytime you want, in the comfort of your own home. “”After all, a family shouldn’t have to wait until Sunday to worship the Lord” as it’s said in the game’s press release.

Mass: We Pray was obviously inspired by the revolutionary Nintendo Wii, but instead of Wiimotes and Nunchucks it features two cross-shaped motion-detecting remotes and kneelers for a genuine religious experience. You and your kids can participate in over 24 different ceremonies and compete in “fun” challenges like Ring the Church Bell,  Spray Holly Water or Shake the…Smoke Thingy Used in Church. The more you play the more grace points you collect and with them you can unlock the “uber-cool” holy mysteries. There’s even a downloadable expansion pack with even more “fun-packed” religious activities.

“Sadly”, Mass: We Pray will be available on Easter 2010, at the soonest, but you can pre-order starting November 20, 2009. So who needs boring games like Wii Sports, when you can have the heavenly Mass: We Pray.

Check the trailer at the bottom to see how happy it makes people. :D

Love Dessert – A Viagra Enhanced Sweet Delight

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Students from a Colombian cooking school presented their unusual “love dessert” at the Gastronomy 2009 culinary show, in Bogota.

The special pudding contains dissolved Viagra, passion-fruit and is garnished with whipped-cream and chocolate. The students, aged between 17 and 23, found a way to safely dissolve the magic blue pill in their dessert and create a new, sweet aphrodisiac. They say their recipe contains detailed instructions on how to dissolve the pill.

Because Viagra is a prescription drug, the Love Dessert can’t yet be sold, but once Colombia’s food and drug institute concludes its analysis of the dessert, you may find it in cafes and restaurants near you. Enjoy and make sure to wear baggy trousers.

Heart-Shaped Oranges Spotted in Seoul

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Their shape may not be as complex as the Buddha-shaped pears, but these heart-shaped oranges spotted in a market, in the capital of South Korea are just as impressive. I’d like to get my hands on one of those for Valentine’s Day, but I doubt they’d ship those babies half way around the world. Oh well, I guess a heart-shaped box of chocolates will have to do.

The Sweetest Star-Wars Imperial Walker

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’m not a big Star-Wars fan, but I’ve got to say this Imperial Walker looks good enough to eat.

But who could muster the courage to take the first bite and ruin such a culinary masterpiece? I mean look at this thing, it looks almost just like the real thing and it even has that ship wrapping a cable around its legs, just like in the Star-Wars movie. There’s no question this frosting-covered Imperial Walker cake looks bad-ass, but I can’t help wonder what it tastes like? And is there a chance a stormtrooper could get stuck between your teeth? Hmm…

Lebanese chefs gathered in Beirut, Lebannon, to set a new Guinness record for the world’s biggest tabbouleh salad.

In an attempt to declare proprietorship over the popular Middle-Eastern salad, Lebanese cooks prepared the largest Tabbouleh salad in history, on Sunday, October 25. The three tons dish contained massive amounts of chopped tomatoes and parsley, but the hungry audience made short work of it. The previous Guinness record for the biggest Tabbouleh was held by Israel.

Edible Bacon Lamp

9 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Long gone are the days bacon was just something that made you go “om nom nom” as you shoved it down your throat, now it’s used to create virtually anything, even a night lamp.

I found a set of photos on Flickr, that showed the process of creating a perfectly usable and edible bacon lamp, and thought I just had to post here for you guys to see. Iwonder if the lightbulb actually cooks the bacon as you use the nightlamp to read a book or something. After you finish, you can just eat the bacon as a late snack and go to sleep a happy man. How awesome is that?!?

Bacon Jam – The Bacon Madness Continues

Comments OffStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Are you one of those people that goes “om nom nom” every time they think about bacon? Well, then you’re going to love this bacon jam.

Cooked by Not Quite Nigella from… Not Quite Nigella, the bacon jam is actually cooked double smoked bacon passed through the food processor. From what I read, the cook was quite pleased with the jam. You’ll probably have a tough time finding a jar of bacon jam at the department store, but if you don’t feel like cooking, try a piece of bacon chocolate instead.

I’m not a big fan of canned foods, but I can be talked into eating some canned tuna fish from time to time. Hell, if need be, I would even eat whole canned chicken, or pork brains in milk gravy.  But there are some strange foods out there I would rather starve to death that try and the Daily Mail made a list of them.
