    Food that smell

    Can you eat it?
    What is the most stinky food you have ever eaten?

    18 Stinky Foods From Around the World
    http://www.openjourney.com/article/1...-world-41.html


    Durian


    "Durian's texture is milky and custard-like and it's smell is distinctly recognizable. American celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain says it leaves your breath smelling like you've been frenching your dead grandma, and he likes the stuff. Another famous food critic, Richard Sterling, described it as "pig-****, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock.""






    Century Egg




    "A paste made from tea water, clay, lime, ash and salt is packed around the eggs, then they are rolled in rice hulls to keep them from sticking together and left to sit for 3 years.

    The result is a greening-brownish egg that smells like flatulence and urine, which is hopefully the only reason why it is called “horse urine eggs” in some Southeast Asian countries.

    Stilton cheese is about as adventurous as I get.

    I've had some complaints when I eat kippered herring but that smells fine to me.

    I've had kimchi and enjoyed it.... I kind of wanted to try a century egg once, but couldn't convince myself. Probably for the best.

    Love the smell of beer or cheese? Thank your DNA: Scientists claim we all smell scents differently because of our genes

    • A study of 200 people has found that genes determine our sense of smell
    • People worse at smelling certain scents also described them differently
    • Certain people were more than 10,000 times better at detecting floral scents

    I love cheese and have had several from that list:


    9. Stilton

    7. Limburger
    6. Roquefort


    3. Munster
    2. Camembert


    I also eat Kimchi and other interesting pickled Korean style veggies...

    The biggest issues with some of those cheeses is storing them in the fridge so that they don't permeate everything else.

    The best way to know if a cheese taste good is to put different cheese on a table outside and to count the number of flies on each cheese. The winner being the one with most flies on it.
    Unfortunately, some cheese smell so bad that even flies can't survive the smell

    I never thought of Muenster as stinky. It's easily my favorite cheese.


    I also enjoy a good stinky braunschweiger (pork liver sausage), though it is not a healthy choice.

    For anyone who hasn't tried stinking bishop cheese - seriously, don't bother. It tastes as bad as it smells, sort of like a tramps rotting socks .

    Same and same, though rarely for the latter given the unhealthy aspect. It was practically a staple in my house when I was a kid, lol.

    Beef liver, seared on both sides but not overdone, with fried onions.

    Making chicken livers chopped with hb eggs and boiled onions.

    Dinuguan, but haven't had that for too long.

    Limburger, or the tamer Liederkranz, on dark bread. Or Bierkase, if I can find it.

    I have had Durian, while I was in China, pretty terrible.
    Along with Kimchi, not bad.

    Glad to see that Durian made it to the top of the list. When the fruit is in season, we would go out to the forest and wait for it to drop. The tree has a tall trunk and the branches start rather high, so it is quite difficult to climb up. We can only wait patiently for the fruit to drop. And it usually drops between 2 am to 4am, so you'll see a bunch of people waiting, beating mosquitoes and straining to hear the thud of the fruit dropping.

    Nothing beats eating a durian especially if it is free. It smells bad but it tastes great, that creamy custard flesh with slightly bitter taste. And if you eat too much, you will be farting and burping durians...

    I ate durian raw. I actually find it quite repulsive, the flavor, texture, all of it.

    Raw collards though are nearly odorless and great for a salad.

    I got into eating Kippers with my first wife and her eating disorder. Anything ready to eat was fair game until I read an article about Kippers being high in Omega-3, protein and calcium (packed in water, not oil) and good for you. They were one of the very few items I could leave in the cupboard and they'd stay untouched until I got a hankering.
