A vodka martini rimmed with bourbon smoked sugar and a skewer of olive, onion and pickled eyeball topped with a Tasmanian leatherwood honey-soaked mealworm

Ich halte das zwar für zutiefst dekadent, aber das Menü des 108. Explorers Club Annual Dinner im Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan hat was. Eingelegte Kuhaugen zum Beispiel. Getränk des Abends war der Explorers Club Martini, „a vodka martini rimmed with bourbon smoked sugar and a skewer of olive, onion and pickled eyeball topped with a Tasmanian leatherwood honey-soaked mealworm“. Hier ein paar meiner Favorites:

– Maple Glazed Hog Mask (Schweinegesichter in Ahornsirup)
– Pickled Eyeballs
– Gator Chili
– Crispy Chicken Feet with Garlic Chili Dipping Sauce
– Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches Infused with Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey and Citrus
– Strawberries dipped in white and dark chocolate with housefly larvae and pupae sprinkles (maggots)
