Technically that shit is dead but damn it does have some slick moves. Researchers say the salty soy sauce stuff is making the squid muscles FREAK THE SHIT OUT, even though the top of its head was already cut off.
Better than eating cats at least.

This one’s borrowed from The Nasty Bits: Deep-Frying Brains. Its horrid and vomit inducing just reading about it. This unfathomably terrible recipe serves 6 as an appetizer, IT takes about active time 40 minutes from raw brain to fresh vomit.
All 4 testers in the foodenation lab broke down in tears after uncontrollably projectile vomiting all over the test kitchen after the first bite of brain – so its really difficult to judge the eat-ability here. Our mind crunching conclusion is at the end. I think it’s safe to say that no fist pumps will be awarded – the events that occurred after this cook were, to say the least.. abnormal.
Here’s what you need:
1 head of garlic, skin on
Black peppercorns in a cheesecloth
1 bay leaf
bundle of fresh herbs
1 pound brains (lamb, pork, or calf)
All purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 quart vegetable oil for deep-frying
For the green sauce:
1 bunch parsely, leaves only
1/2 bunch dill
1 small can of anchovy fillets, finely chopped
12 cloves of garlic, finely minced or grated
1 tablespoon capers, minced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
Here’s what you do:
Bring a 2 quart pot of water to simmer and add in the garlic, peppercorns, and herbs. Simmer for 15 minutes. Then gently lower the brains into the pot and simmer for 6 minutes. Remove the brains with a slotted spoon and let cool. When the brains are cold and firm, separate the lobes into 2 inch chunks.
Meanwhile, prepare 3 bowls with the flour, the egg whisked with milk, and the breadcrumbs.
Heat the oil to 350°F. Roll each brain segment in flour, then coat it in the egg mix, then coat it in the breadcrumbs. Deep-fry the brain until they are golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately with green sauce.
To make green sauce: Finely chop herbs and mix with the anchovies, garlic, and capers. Add enough olive oil so that the mixture is spoonable but not runny. Season with black pepper.

Foodenator now presents you with the user-voted most awful looking thing to eat ever. EVER.
Ever heard of geoducks? First of all, they’re pronounced gooey-ducks. The prehistoric-looking and, well, pretty ugly shellfish, are native to the Pacific Northwest and fascinating creatures. Though tough to raise (it involves hours of hunched-over farming), they’ve been called the prime rib of clams. Liza de Guia tried some for the first time on her recent trip to Washington state.
“I can honestly say as a seafood lover I felt like I had been missing out my whole life. I tried geoduck sashimi, geoduck fritters, geoduck in chowder and geoduck ceviche.” She visited Taylor Shellfish‘s geoduck farm on Stretch Island in Puget Sound, the largest growers in the Northwest, in this episode of Food Curated.
To keep it short and sweet – your food is bad when its zombi-fied! Watch out.
Zombie food is a viral disease that only affects food – because food is not alive – and it is currently a big danger in the south. As summer progresses up north – beware of zombie food. It won’t be a problem for your health, but man will it STINK.
We just got werd that Procter and Gamble is recalling some of its sexiest Pringle flavors ever: “Restaurant Cravers Cheeseburger” and “Family Faves Taco Night” are both GONERS. The reason is due to tainted nasty HPV – (not Human Papaloma Virus) Salmonella-tainted hydrolyzed vegetable protein.
The tainting is causing grief for other companies too – Nestle Professional North America just recalled for about 6,000 pounds (3 TONS, approximately 24.5 pigs-worth) of ready-to-eat bacon, and Ruiz Foods is recalling ready-to-eat beef, whatever the hell that is.
For more info on the awful Pringle situation, watch this video, yo.

Under a new law against animal abuse in China, individuals in caught eating either cat or dog meat could face a fine of 5,000 yuan (approximately $735) or up to 15 days in prison. Businesses involved in the practice could be fined up to 500,000 yuan (or $7,325), according to the Times Online.
The draft going to Parliament in April would be first law against animal abuse by a new, increasingly animal-loving Chinese society that no longer has the taste for canine and feline meat.
Dog meat appeared in Chinese cuisine as early as the third century B.C. and is long believed to provide warmth to those who eat it. Restaurants offering dog — or “fragrant meat” as it’s often poetically referred to — appear throughout the entire nation. Its “warming” property makes it particularly popular in winter stews and the frigid northeastern region of China.
Cat meat, however, is primarily consumed by the people of the southern Guangdong province. Cat is not as popular because of an old superstition that the feline will come back at night to retaliate.
Waking up to a vengeful minx? No thanks. We’ll leave the tail-wagging eating to Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain.
