But there is such a thing, one look at that would be enough to cause most of us have a collective sense of disgust and hostility. By one of those unpleasant things are questionable delicacies that is prepared and is revered around the world. These dishes are extremely aesthetic appearance, but their taste and smell, we can only guess, and this, by the way, can not but rejoice. In this article you will also find a couple of Russian dishes that we all somehow did not seem to be disgusting.
< salmiakki Sweets with smelling salts, Finland
All the fun of the Finns for their love of licorice salmiakki (salmiakki), which they adore and hrumkayut packs. And for good reason. Imagine: black, with a smell of ammonia, charcoal (hence the color) and salty fillings. The Finns call them the gift of the gods, and so fond of, that is added to the liquor and ice cream.
bee larvae, Japan
Larvae of bees hachinoko (hachinoko), cooked with soy sauce and sugar, they can be ordered in almost any eatery. There are the larvae of a giant bee Suzumebachi (suzumebachi), skewer them on a stick and fried, like kebabs, cooked with rice and sushi made with them, and even put in the cookies. And that nice crunch ...
Natto - one of the most popular products in Japan. It is fermented soybeans, which are often eaten for breakfast, as we have porridge. Natto is sticky and viscous and has a specific smell, something like spoiled cheese. It is considered healthy and wholesome food.
The oil-fried, USA
Americans in general are very fond of all the toast and the butter was no exception. Pieces of butter covered with honey, flour and cinnamon skewer on a stick, then dipped and deep-fried very quickly fried. So much fat in one dish you've ever seen.
Jelly salad that is eaten in the US, the foreigners do not cause nothing but bewilderment. The basis is always the gelatin with fruit flavors - watermelon, grape, apple. And then many variations: carrots, peppers, cucumber, cheese, tuna, lemon, olives - all that comes into my head. Hmm, strange, and jelly, so they do not like!
Snickers Salad, USA
Another wonderful salad - Snickers Salad. Minimum hassle: just chopped Snickers, apple and fill all the whipped cream. That just will not do to a child of fruit eaten.
Herring under a fur coat and jelly, Russia
For salad and borscht in the world we have become accustomed and even loved them. Palm of strangeness among Russian meals hold, of course, herring under a fur coat (salted fish, boiled beets and mayonnaise ?!) and jelly (like this - meat in jelly?)
Surströmming - it podtuhshaya herring, although there are many lovers of its taste. They say the worst moment - when you open the jar. The smell literally knocked down, and as the fermentation process proceeds in the bank, a little stinking explosion may occur. Smart people are advised to open surströmming on the street or even do it in a bucket of water.
Balut - a dish popular in Asia, particularly the Philippines, where there are special poultry farms. This duck egg, which already appeared the fruit of the plumage, beak and cartilage. Eggs are eaten cooked, raw, soy sauce, fried. With unaccustomed produces wildly repulsive, but Asians love it and find it very useful dish.
Quite a strange thing only understand astraliytsy. Vegemite (vegemite) - is a thick paste from the remnants of beer wort, taste bitter, salty, yeast smell. Vegemite - something like a national symbol, like a kangaroo or a koala. Its spread on bread and eat in the morning, since their national Australian bread.
As soon as the Scandinavians do not excel in cooking fish. To get the most lutefisk, it is soaked for three days in the cod liquor in caustic soda solution, why it turns into a translucent jelly with a strange smell. Norwegians and residents of other Nordic countries consider lutefisk a delicacy and eaten at Christmas.
