Tuesday Titillation

A local restaurant down the road recently held their Prairie Oyster, aka Rocky Mountain Oyster, night to a packed crowd.  In Serbia they call the delicacy White Kidneys, but they don't hide the truth in the name of their festival: the 7th Annual  "World Testicle Cooking Championship."

"This festival is all about fun, food and bravery," said Ljubomir Erovic, the Serbian chef who organises the event in Ozrem and has published a testicle cookery book."
They weren't serving your ordinary deep fried balls that you find in the Midwest.

"The festival includes dishes such as testicle pizza and testicles in bechamel sauce flavoured with a variety of herbs found in the region."
For you fellas out there, here's a test to your manhood.  See if you can watch this short video about harvesting the oyster without squirming in your seat.

Wow, one of life's little lessons... it's hard to type when everything is puckered.

But I do enjoy a batch of turkey testicles - if somebody else is preparing them.

Turkey Balls - the other white meat.

Sixty: I bet you gobble those up. A piece of advice - If you order meat balls at some places, you might not get what you expected.

I'm a pretty adventurous eater, but I just can't bring myself to try RMO's. You gotta draw the line somewhere.

You are mean, Catch!

I blogged on the Testicle Festival a while ago. I have eaten a sheep's brain (drunk otherwise I don't think I would have started on it - it was rather nice)and a lizard (sober - I was at a dinner hosted by the Grand Mufti of Beirut and therefore no alcohol - no I am not making this up!) but never a bull's - erm - bollock. No plans on starting either. I think it's the thought of what it's - erm - full of that puts me off.

Ace: My line is drawn where yours is.

Crock: I knew you'd squirm.

White: I remember your post now that you've jogged my memory. I must be channeling your thoughts.

Since you are name dropping, I once had a grand muffin with the Lizard of Oz (or perhaps I only dreamed it).
