Two Eaters go head-to-head in an attempt to one-up their opponent’s culinary skills. And you, dear reader, get to be judge and jury. Try the recipes yourself, then visit our Facebook page to cast your vote.
Both cooking and eating can be fraught with peril. We touched on this last week in looking at why food is a treacherous thing, but this week is the masters course.
In one corner, the kitchen disasters we’ve all experienced. In the other, the foods we tried — or saw — we wish we hadn’t (though some would eat again!) From kitchen horror stories … to equally chilling encounters with foods so strange, they’ll make you never want to eat again. (At least not tonight!)
Caveat emptor, and happy reading. Don’t forget to share YOUR story in the comment section!
This week, we’re dishing up Eater’s food horror stories — from the dishes than went wrong, to the one that just was wrong. It’s another reminder that, in the kitchen, we all have epic fails. All. Of. Us.
DISCLAIMER: You’ll either be really grossed out by this post … or completely fascinated. It’s a compilation of Eater’s adventures in unusual foods. Read — or relish — at your own risk. Bon appetite?

This week, a look at the perils inherent in one of our beloved pastimes: EATING. Continue reading
