We all love to eat, but what’s dinner for some is disgusting to others. Standard fare just won’t cut it for these gourmands of the gruesome – they prefer road-kill, bugs and even dining on dirt. In the picturesque farmlands of New Zealand, rams’ testicles are guzzled down at the most bizarre food festival in the world. In Japan, a culinary revolution is unearthed when a chef cooks with topsoil; and in Scotland, a foraging family chooses a diet rich in foods from the wild – berries, mushrooms, …and road-kill. If variety is the spice of life, why should it be Forbidden?
