Even if you’re not interested in trying these two rather interesting foods, you’ll probably want to watch those who are! I’m betting that we’re going to end up with some interesting video!
I’ll host in my front yard, and if it looks like rain, we’ll put a few of the canopies up (or just the monster).
First, we’ll learn the proper way to cut and serve Durian. And everyone (who wants to give it a try) can enjoy a few bites, while everyone else does their best to deal with the smell. ;)
Then we cook and serve the balut. If anyone wants to prove that they’re the best balut-eater, we can have a balut-eating contest. And we’ll see, once and for all, who can eat the most balut in three minutes!
For those of you wondering what the heck durian is, it’s a smelly fruit. And a balut, if you’re scratching your head on that one, is a baby duck, still in the egg. Both can be a challenge to eat for Westerners, and both are much loved in some parts of the World!
What to bring: 1) camp chair, 2) beverage of choice, and 3) a few bucks for the durian and balut fund.
Optional: Bring a weird dish of your own, to share!
I’ll email my home address to the attendees. I live near Shallowford and Chamblee-Tucker.
Prepare to spend the afternoon laughing!!!
If you're coming, please let me know if you want to try the balut and/or durian.
