What’s the Weirdest Thing You’ve Ever Eaten, and Other Questions for Austin Chefs

The interior of Foreign and Domestic
We like to be the ones asking chefs questions, as you’ve probably noticed in our “A Chat With…” series (check out Swift's Attic's Zack Northcutt this week and Barley Swine's Kyle McKinney last week). But in its food issue this week, the Austin Chronicle asks some fun questions of Austin chefs.
Ned Elliott answers that the weirdest thing he’s ever eaten were chocolate-covered grasshoppers and bumblebees from Mexico: “The bumblebees were better because they didn't squirt.” Meanwhile Hank Cathey, the director of Fusebox Festival’s Digestible Feats says, “Probably the weirdest thing I've ever eaten was a Twinkie, and, no, I didn't like it very much at all.”

Meanwhile chefs lament the never-ending food trends of cake balls, gels, sliders and chipotle. And Kristine Kittrell, the executive chef at Mulberry, says she thinks horse is underused: “It's like a cow and a deer had a love child, yet we don't use it.”
