Seems the server lost most of my post during maintenance!


Either way I wouldn't try casu marzu.

May be because I am not a cheese fan.

But may be because the 'cheese' is nearly liquid because the maggots poop liquifies it and one is supposed to eat the maggots alive with the 'cheese'. Seems human stomach acid is not necessarily strong enough to kill them which can lead to health problems when they start boring through the intestinal wall.

Aye, but then we do have teeth for good reason-maggots "may"(sounds dubious to me!) survive the stomach acid-but not being masticated

Well wiki puts it this way:
"Larvae, if eaten alive (accidentally or otherwise), can pass through the digestive system alive (human stomach acids do not usually kill them) and live for some time in the intestines. This is referred to as an enteric myiasis. Cheese fly larvae are a leading cause of myiasis in humans, and are the insect most frequently found in the human intestine.[10] The larvae can cause serious intestinal lesions as they attempt to bore through the intestinal walls. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, and bloody diarrhea. Living and dead larvae may pass in the stool."

The maggots can also launch themselves for a distance of 6 inches when disturbed.

Getting back on topic -- last evening we had salmon poached in a "liquor" containing, stock, white wine, crushed lemon grass, and star anise.

And we had our salmon pan fried (fiercely so the outside browned and the inside was almost raw) in butter.

Reserved the fish then squeezed a lemon into the pan, with 1/2 glass of Rosé, and fish stock. Reduced until glazed, added a thumb of butter and poured over the fish.

Served with sautéed baby spinach and a small mound of basmati rice.

Not bad ....

What? Kimchee is great! Of course I also like poi, so that may tell you something.

I was on a flight from London to Milan (continuing to Lagos) back in the early 1990's -- biz class -- the fellow behind me had brought his own lunch -- kimchee. When he uncorked the thing almost the entire cabin cleared out!

The other time I was on this flight the stew made the passenger with DIYLunch put it back in the container.

...and some wonder why bankers have to be paid the big bucks

Yes, at least poi doesn't have a strong smell.
My Sri Lankan neighbors in Paris used to cook the most awful stuff. Never did find out what it was, but it smelled strongly of rotten socks. At first, I thought it was.
