Whinging Wednesday: Things that are food and shouldn’t be! NSFW

I am a fairly adventurous person, especially when it comes to cuisine.  I’m interested in new techniques, tastes, textures and cultures and I will try anything once.  However, there is a disturbing new trend that makes me wonder whether these people are cooks or sadists.  This trend, ladies and gentlemen, is the use and ingestion of bodily fluids in food!

First we have the menstrual cookie!  While perusing my favorite comedy sites I came across this post on Failblog After Dark:

Now surely this is a joke.  Some of my online friends even got into a discussion over the consistency of blood being kept in a jar over the course of a year and the general consensus is that this is probably just some kind of publicity stunt or art project.  However, New York Magazine talks about a trend among new mothers who eat their placenta after their babies are born and even swap recipes.

Anyone up for some Placenta Pasta?

It seems pregnant women really get into the recycling bit when it comes to their fluids!  How about washing down that Placenta Pasta with a Breast Milk Smoothie?

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… well, suddenly I’m lactose intolerant:-p

Not to be left out, men are also taking part in the recycling of bodily fluids for consumption.  Yes folks, this fun little cookbook can be all yours!  While away the hours cooking up some special treats for your friends and family like Strawberry Splasharitas and Spunky Candied Pecans guaranteed to have your guests talking.  Ok maybe they’ll never speak to YOU again but they’ll definitely be talking!

Who wants Flan?

So it seems this trend is not only here to stay but it’s actually been picking up steam over the years!  As a kid I always wondered how societies in sci-fi movies tolerated things like Soylent Green and zombies.

Deep fried BRAAAAINZ

Ciao for now.

UPDATE:  I had actually heard about this a few weeks back but forgot all about it until my local news just reported it.  A joke turns serious and after some testing and analysis it looks like Oregon’s Rogue Beer is about to launch its first brew using yeast from the beard of the brewmaster himself!  Just one more reason I’ll stick to wine, thanks.
