The Year Of Eating Dangerously: Most Disturbing Food Of 2007

Balut: First-timers might want to keep their eyes closed.

Chef Chris Cosentino of San Francisco's Incanto and The Next Iron Chef fame is known for his willingness to eat just about anything that comes from an animal. In fact he's known for his offal and organ meat boosterism, so it was with some shock and — I must admit — a little delight that I read about his recent adventure with the Philippine delicacy Balut. It seems even the great Cosentino won't eat it, which officially qualifies Balut as the most disturbing food of the year.
