Orange sculptures

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Now this is what I call juicy art.

I could think of a few things to make a sculpture out of, but oranges…definitely not on my list. I have to admit these look pretty cool though and I hope they ate the oranges after the presentation.

Erotic pasta

I can’t imagine why you’d want to eat something like this.

Sex sells, that we all know, but this is stretching it a little, if you ask me. I stumbled across these photos during one of my frequent web-surfing session and I thought they fit perfectly here. I sincerely wonder if anyone actually eats these things or where u can get them maybe a sex-shop?

Pizza-tossing championship

2 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

That’s right folks there’s such a thing as a World Pizza Championship.

It’s hosted in Salsomaggiore Terme, Italy and it gathers tens of professional pizza makers from allover the world. The most impressive challenge of the entire contest is the pizza tossing, an acrobatic event involving the pizza dough. As you can see from the pics, these guys are true masters tossing giant pies into the air or spinning them on their fingers like basketballs and there are even synchronized-dancers performing with pizza dough. Must really cool to watch these guys go all out to take the title of best pizza maker in the world. So, if you’re ever in Italy…

The largest barbecue in the world

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

That’s a lot of deliciously looking meat…yumm.

Uruguay isn’t famous for a great many things, but thanks to the event that took place on April 3rd of this year, its beef will be a lot more famous all across the globe. over 1000 people got together to cook 12 metric tonnes of fried beef, over a 1mile long grill set up by the military. Six tonnes of charcoal burned as 20,000 spectators screamed when the Guinness Book official announced a new record had been set.

The previous barbecue record belonged to Mexico and was set in 2006, but the new one crushed by the 4 extra tonnes of meat used in Uruguay.

I gotta say that Uruguayan beef sure looks tasty, I hope I get to try some of it at one point…

A Chinese market

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I’m a really big fan of markets, but I wouldn’t buy anything from here.

I understand this kind of market can’t be as clean as any of those modern supermarkets, and quite frankly, I like it this way, it makes everything there look natural, while supermarkets make everything look artificial. But still, this Chinese market is just a little to filthy for my taste. That monkey skeleton alone scared the crap out of me, that thing that looks like a dead calf floating in that plastic thing. Organic and natural is good, but let’s not over do it.

Cooked rats actually look pretty good

6 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

You might not think so after seeing the first picture but check out the other ones and you’ll see what I mean.

Rats are a delicacy in countries like Thailand and Vietnam and many tourists try it at least once when visiting. You wouldn’t catch me dead eating one of those buggers, but I read they taste delicious, resembling the taste of rabbit meat (I hate the taste of rabbit so…). If you’re thinking of actually trying this “delicacy” make sure you cook it properly, otherwise experts say it can cause diarrhea.

I must admit they look tasty after cooking, like delicious roasted chicken, but as soon as I remember what they really are, I lose my appetite.

World’s biggest burger

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I wonder if your heart explodes after eating one of these babies?

The world’s biggest cheeseburger comes from Bob’s BBQ & Grill of Pattaya, Thailand and it was created in celebration of the king of Thailand’s 60th year accession to the throne. The burger’s unveiling was witnessed by officials from Ripley’s Believe It or Not, who recorded it’s weight of 78.5 pounds. It measures 60cm in diameter and 35cm in height.

Big Bob’s Texas Belt Buster, as it’s been named by the restaurant’s owner, is now on the menu and can be ordered 12 hours in advance.

Golden foods and drinks

I think that gold plating our food is proof that humans will do anything to stand out and show how luxurious their lifestyles are. You wouldn’t catch me dead eating or drinking any of these things, but maybe they’ll appeal to you.

This is the most expensive ice-cream in the world, costing a whopping $1000

Are you sad? Take a happy pill!

3 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Of course you’ll need to travel to Barcelona, Spain in order to get one but I hear they work every time.

This has to be one of the most ingenious ideas I have ever heard, we all know sweets make everyone feel better so why not use them as actual anti-depressives? That’s exactly what the Happy Pills shop in Barcelona is doing, it raps all kinds of tasty, gummy sweets in plastic bottles, labeled with pink crosses and prescriptions like: “against Mondays” or “against the intolerable lightness of being”. The shop is like a long hallway and you can get a bottle and a spoon and serve yourself from the various medicines.

I have to remember this place for when i visit Barcelona…hope it’s going to be soon!

The power of Chinese massage oil

24 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

Lucky for me, I’m not very big on Chinese food, or any other spicy cuisine for that matter, I don’t know how my throat could withstand the power of that acid-like sauce. Frankly I can’t even conceive anybody would use that on their food, that stuff makes Mexican chilly look like baby food.

if you’ve ever tried anything like this please leave your thoughts, I’m really curious if Chinese hot sauce is as hot as it looks.

UPDATE: According to one of our readers the red substance is actually some kind of oil and it is not eatable. Sorry for the mix-up, my Chinese is not very good.

As you all know, Chinese are very serious when it comes to their historical legacy, their centuries old customs and traditions, so it comes as no surprise that even though it’s rapidly becoming one of the most industrialized nations in the world they still honor their forefathers by performing ancient ceremonies.

Avery good example is this Cin dynasty traditional ceremony, performed in the city of Hangzhou. Progress is great but history is fascinating.

Juicy Thai delicacies

1 CommentStumble it Icon digg it Icon

For some reason I never thought I’d use the word delicacy in the same sentence with words like cricket, caterpillar, frog, grasshopper, but I guess I was wrong. Apparently in Thailand all these are considered delicious and extremely good for the body. Grasshoppers are boiled alive so they keep their physical detail intact, but you shouldn’t eat the head and intestines…charming.

If you’re into this stuff, you might be thrilled to hear you could also try some roaches, beetles, ants, ant eggs and even cooked scorpions.

Duck blood soup

7 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

There’s no way in hell I’m eating something like this, bring the bat soup and the Thai delicacies on, but Vietnamese blood soup…yuck!

See it’s all about the way it’s cooked because…well, it’s not cooked at all! They just slit the duck’s or goose’s throat, gather all the blood in a boll, add ginger, some vegetables and sometimes sprinkle peanuts on top and there you have it, that’s your soup. It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and it’s regarded as a source of strength by those who cook and eat it.

Strangest thing is, some restaurants in Germany have started serving this and it is a huge success, people can’t get enough of it! If you want to know more about it, or where you can get some, search it online, it’s called Tiet cahn…Good luck!

Bat Soup, Delicious!

28 CommentsStumble it Icon digg it Icon

I have to say I’m not a big fan of exotic foods, but I’m sure I’d at least try some of them if I didn’t know what they were. But to take a whole bat and dump it in a pot of soup, then dump it in my plate…now that’s just disgusting. Apparently in the islands of Palau this is a delicacy and some tourists, like the lady in the photo, actually have the guts to try it.
