    Funny story, I actually was bitten by a squirrel while feeding them!

    I actually was brought up eating horse meat. And it’s a good meat. At that time healthier than the cow meat that was full of hormones.

    After Ben said that head cheese is French fine dining, it got me thinking. In fact, I paused the video to write this. I spent 10 years in south Louisiana and head cheese is far from fine dining. BUT, maybe it is French because of the French influence on Louisiana cuisine. Either way, Jamie is correct in his falsified story that head cheese was/is a means of using all of the animal – typically pig in the U.S. Nowadays, I am pretty sure that head cheese is no longer made from offal (the practice of using brains in food commercially has been deemed unsafe by the FDA – rightfully so). Rather, it is a terrine of cranial meat pieces and maybe other meaty bits like the trotters. I wonder if terrine is the proper word. Head cheese is not made into a pâté first, but rather uses the natural gelatin to maintain the meat bits’ loaf-like shape. “Terrine” sounds far more delicious than “meat jelly”. So, I’ll stick with “terrine”.

Solo dining is incredibly popular in Japan and Ben’s been lucky enough to head over and try it for himself.

What are your guys thoughts?

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.

S4 E9 – Is eating seasonally worth it?

It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

Of course this podcast had to be valentine’s themed…kind of. This episodes explores weird and wonderful aphrodisiacs and as expected, things get a little bit (very) weird. P.S. this entire podcast theme was Jamie’s idea…can you tell?

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

The future of food is constantly changing and perceptions of food vary drastically from country to country. What may be considered as a delicacy in one country could be seen as revolting in another. An interesting topic that’s been cropping up recently is the use of insects as a more sustainable form of protein. What are your thoughts?
