Here are two video clips from Andrew Zimmern’s Bizzare Foods on Greece.
All around the Mediterranean sea urchin is an esteemed delicacy, not a bizzare food.
Fermenting and preserving dairy products in goat’s skin is an ancient practice.
Zimmern’s show focuses on regional food from around the world “which is typically perceived by Americans as being gross, unique, or, of course, bizarre”.
can food- any food- be considered as bizzare?
no matter how different or unusual food and food -related etiquette might be, or how unfamiliar-and sometimes unappealing- cooking and eating practices are, above all, food links to a variety of preferences and choices, taboos, rituals, traditions, religious beliefs and dietary practices.
It links to culture, identity, politics and economics.
there are not bizarre foods.
there are different cultures.
Lamb’s tongue and eyes, sheep’s head, cow’s stomach, pig’s feet, octopus, roasted sparrow, snails, jellied eel- or eating food with fingers- are perceived by -white?- Americans as being gross and weird, although they are highly esteemed in a number of world regions.
what is considered strange, weird and bizzare to someone in one part of the world, in another part of the world is simply considered delicacy.
