i love pla muk yang, or thai style flash grilled squid over a simple salad with a wedge of lime and sweet chili sauce.

if i recall correctly, the people in the show literally were collecting snails from right around their houses and gardens. dozens at a time after a heavy rain, and like you said, kind of free range. it was almost a snail infestation from the pictures.

i know from my own garden that all you need to do is leave out some wooden planks in a loose pile near a lawn sprinkler to collect them.
I would rather pour salt on them. Then I watch them melt into nothing. Nasty, slimy little critters.

well, of course you're supposed to season them first...

We have a restaurant that imports whale meat from Japan and if it is your birthday, you can get a free order. It is located right on the Fish Pier. I would throw my plate right back into the sea if it came to me with whale on it.

I don't want to see whale on my plate, or any other mammal that lives in the sea.

I agree, Greg. I have absolutely no desire to eat whale.

I don't want to see any fugu on my plate. This is a fish served as sashimi in Japan that contains neurotoxins, which gives a "high" when consumed in proper quantities, or can be lethal if improperly prepared. (Fugu chefs are required to have a government license, to ensure the safety of the public.)

If I want something that gets me high I'll have a few glasses of wine, thank you.

Again, I agree 100% with you Greg. I don't tinker with foods that are deadly to people. There are too many other foods to enjoy that pose no risk at all.

I grew up in an Asian household and I've seen a bunch of odd things being cooked. I USE to eat dinuguan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinuguan) until my cousin told me what it was. Needless to say, it has not graced my plate since I was about 8. On the more normal food side, I CANNOT stand green beans. I think it's a cruel joke that my family has me make the green bean casserole every Thanksgiving :P
