  1. I've actually had Durian several'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.

  2. 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.)

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.
