Culinary Ignorance

Yesterday, I attended a pre-wedding dinner at a fancy Seattle French restaurant. One of the items on the menu was a brochette consisting of chicken, puff pastry, and sweetbread. Only after taking that first bite of sweetbread did I realize what it is. Now I realize that French cuisine can rival Chinese in terms of what parts of the animal it will use as food. They are actually worse since they have such nice euphemisms to describe these certain body parts. At least Chinese restaurants will tell me if that tube steak is made from pig intestines.

The Frogs eat escargot. Enough said.
