An intersection of food, nutrition & love
I've actually had Durian several times...it's actually pretty tasty, like custard, before the smell sets in. Also, don't eat it around carpet - you'll never get it out.You can find it now at any T&T store, whole and always frozen.
Thanks for the comment, Mark. That's one to try! (I like stainey foods because I feel like they are always more nutritious and delicious.)
A few years back I had a durian milkshake at Pho Lemongrass in Brookline MA. My dining companions disagreed with the smell that seemed to permeate the (large) dining room during the preparation of the drink. I was forbidden from ordering it in the future.
Funny! I guess the verdict is still out on durian. I'll have to try it for myself and report back on my findings. Mighty controversial...
Durian is good, from everyone who I have ever heard has tried it. But, yeah, it's spiky outside and...inside. =/The thing about roasting a bird alive in wine is something beyond cuisine to me. You don't need to be cruel to have good cuisine.
