Man Eats Roadkill For 30 Years

Rat stir fries and owl curries hardly sound like the stuff you would serve your friends for dinner. But surprisingly, Jonathan McGowan’s exotic roadkill dishes are a big hit with his guests. The 44-year-old bachelor has lived on a diet of roadkill for the past 30 years to avoid buying meat from the supermarket. He has shunned pre-packaged meats and instead dined on mice, moles, hedgehogs, pigeons, crows and gulls. The taxidermist from Bournemouth, Dorset, never kills the animals himself but eats only what he finds at the roadside or in woodland. Mr McGowan first got a taste for roadkill at the age of 14 when he cooked a dead adder that he had found. He said: ‘The adder didn’t actually taste very nice – a bit like bacon rind. But it had piqued my curiosity and I wondered what else I could eat and what it would taste like.’ After leaving sixth form college he lived alone and turned to roadkill to save some money on his weekly food bills.” w/ photos

How To Make Deep Fried S’Mores

“The idea to deep fry S’Mores was suggested on the Food Network Humor forums. How though? The ooey goodness of structural integrity requires the middle to be hot before it hits the oil… The Interwebz produced recipes using wanton or eggroll wrappers, but that felt inauthentic and sounds really gross. In one of those simply ingenious ideas that do not occur often enough, Kitchen Husband invested in a jar of marshmallow fluff. These were my personal favorite of the evening. All the goodness of a campfire S’More enveloped in a puff of fluffy, hot pastry with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.” w/ photos

“We all know that doughnuts are bad for you and too much pizza won’t do any favors for your skin – but what happens when a particular type of food is so unhealthy, a government decides to veto it altogether?

From Kinder eggs to Marmite and beyond, take a look at the products that – in some peoples’ eyes – pose a clear and present danger.” w/ photos
