Connection to a class: World Geography

Hello everyone! Welcome back to another blog. As we all know, there are many different types of foods around the world that are unique to specific regions. This week, I am going to write about different types of food that are popular across the world. In South-east Asia, they have created a new type of wine called ‘Snake Wine.’ This wine is made by shoving a snake into white wine, or mixing body fluids from the snake into the wine. Sannakji is a traditional Korean dish that is also very popular in Korea. To make this dish, chefs cut up the octopus into small parts and serve it to customers while the octopus parts are still squirming around. It is important to chew thoroughly with this dish because the tentacles may suction to your throat and you could die.In Iceland, they serve a dish called Hákarl. This dish is made up of parts of a decomposed shark. The shark is buried to ferment in its own fluids for several months before being cut into strips to dry. A balus is very popular in the Philippians. It is basically a fertilized duck egg that contains a semi-developed duck fetus inside. I have actually tried this dish before and I think it taste good. I have only eaten the duck eggs that are about 2 weeks old, so I don’t really notice the developing duck because the form isn’t fully developed. There aren’t any  feathers yet, so I don’t feel like I am eating a duck either. The third and final food I am about to talk about is fried spiders from Cambodia. It is a Cambodian delicacy and considered an acquired taste. The usual type of spider they use are the Tarantulas and it is served with lime and black pepper. There are many other foods out there, but this is all i am going to talk about. Cya next time!
