I’m reading the book Good Calories, Bad Calories and the author mentions lumberjacks (in Scandinavia?) eating a block of cheese with either lard or butter (forget which) spread on top and washed down with ale.
Now, that sounds horrific on so many levels. I couldn’t imagine sucking down an ale, then heading off to the woods with my axe, and no way in hell am I eating buttered cheese.
One gross combo that stands out is my Dad snacking on buttered Saltines. That just sounds so awful.
This isn’t really a food, but I remember some PBS show that showed the women of some South American tribe making an alcoholic beverage by chewing the ingredients, then spitting that into a container and allowing it to ferment for a while. The smell must have been horrible.
So what have you got?
