DelicaciesStreaming Video - 2010
Our tastes reveal who we are-and who we aren't. This program injects a perspective-changing awareness into conventional views of food, searching the globe for culinary traditions that disgust some and delight others. From rotten shark meat in Iceland to a goat fetus in India, from cooked rat in Togo to a stew made from bull genitals in Taiwan, the video showcases numerous unusual delicacies. It also reminds us that while mainstream, Anglo-American culture takes a dim view of dietary customs beyond its horizons, that kind of squeamishness can be a two-way street.
