As we were gagging at a local delicacy in Manila - a cooked unhatched chicken embryo - it occurred to me that almost every country has some foods that make foreigners' wave their hands and swear to never try it. As Europeans, we found many such foods in Asia (from chicken feet, fermented soy beans, to aforementioned, ahm, embryos). But there are quite a few in Europe as well. Take Scottish haggis (which I love!) - sheep stomach stuffed with offal. Yum.
So here we go with the first food in the series:
The preparation of this delicacy (yes, that's what it is to us) is fairly simple:
1) Simmer it with some salt and bouquet garnis of you choice for 1.5 hours (or you can buy it ready cooked in the deli section of Lithuanian supermarkets),
2) Place it in ice cold water after boiling (so it tightens up and does not flake),
3) Slice it and serve it with garnish of your choice. Mayo and horseradish taste best.
