I got tagged by Rosa a few days ago
and had been cracking my head on coming up with five foods that I want to eat before I die.Ã‚Â I can only think of two so far and shall come up with three more as I write this.
Fugu (blow fish) is a fish which contains deadly poison in the organs. Despite the risk, fugu dishes remain as special feasts in Japan. Even the milt is considered as a great delicacy. Fugu is referred to as blow/globe/puffer fish since it blows its body up. (source
The thought of eating something that can kills me sound very wicked.Ã‚Â I have seen food programmes on this but have never eaten fugu before partly because it is rare here and also very expensive.Ã‚Â So, fugu will be on my number one food to eat before I die.
Because of their high price and their pungent taste, truffles are used sparingly.
White truffles are generally served uncooked and shaved over steaming buttered pasta or salads. White or black paper-thin truffle slices may be inserted in meats, under the skins of roasted fowl, in foie gras preparations, in pÃƒÂ¢tÃƒÂ©s, or in stuffings. Some specialty cheeses contain truffles as well. (source)
Truffle is so expensive and so rare, it will be the second thing I want to have a taste before I die. It is available here before but it costs hundreds and thousands of RM just to have a meal with truffle.Ã‚Â So, I shall just dream on…
3. Whole roasted lamb – Maori style
I remembered reading in Reader’s Digest about this New Zealand feast where they roasted a whole lamb over some volcanic stone/fire/whatever I can’t remember.Ã‚Â I think I was barely 10 years old then but the description of the taste sort of stayed in my mind.Ã‚Â So, having a whole lamb, fats and all will be a good way to clog up the heart that I won’t be needing, right?
4. Live Octopus
You know?Ã‚Â Those creepy crawly legs of the octopus?Ã‚Â Cut it and pop it into the mouth, Japanese style.Ã‚Â I bet it must be chewy and sweet.Ã‚Â Yumm…..
5. The world most expensive caviar
I don’t know what it is except that it has to be really, really expensive and rare.Ã‚Â The only caviar I can afford now is those super salty, fishy ones from the supermarket shelves.Ã‚Â So, give me some golden caviar with cheese and crackers, please.
LOL, from my list, I can see that I crave expensive foods I can’t afford right now.Ã‚Â So, I better cannot afford them anytime soon because I want to live a long, long time somemore.
I shall tag five persons:
There are so many people I want to tag but I have to limit to five.Ã‚Â So, do share what will be the five foods you want to eat before you die (touch wood, I hope no one is pantang).Ã‚Â Drop your comments, please!
