What would you do with one of these giant ostrich eggs? Maybe make a giant Scotch egg?
They are in stock at Whole Foods at Columbus Circle and go for $40.
I’m in Cape Cod for the week and it’s a tradition to make lobster rolls and take them to the beach (along with a bottle of rosé and some Cape Cod chips). This year, we decided to grill the fresh lobster instead of boiling it.
Even though lobsters don’t have a central nervous system or central cortex (and are unlikely to register pain), I plunged a sharp knife between its eyes in order to kill the lobster quickly and humanely. After the jump, you will see some very GRAPHIC IMAGES of the butchering of the fresh lobster, along with a recipe… CLICK HERE FOR GRAPHIC LOBSTER PHOTOS
The 2013 Balut Eating Contest will be held at the Hester Street Fair on August 3, 2013. The contest is run by the awesome people at Maharlika. I came in second place last year and I am so honored to have been invited back again this year!
Balut eggs are delicious fertilized duck eggs that are cooked and eaten with salt and vinegar. If you’re lucky sometimes you will find a bit of beak, bones, and feathers! This year I am going to bring a little garlic and chili, if they allow condiments again like they did last year.
