Things stuffed inside other things: You've heard of turducken
, but what if that isn't enough for you? The largest stuffed dish in terms of sheer bulk may be this recipe
for stuffed camel, a dish so decadently large that Snopes had to verify its existence
. But if the stuffed camel isn't enough layers for you, the most nested dish of all time may be the Roti Sans Pareil
("Roast without Equal"), a 19th century French dish requiring 17 birds that are now mostly endangered. Thanks to Google Books, we can now peruse some 19th century recipes of the dish (1
) or, if you prefer, you can read the original French

Turducken: it's been discussed on MeFi before (here
), but now it's gone mainstream: an article
in the NYTimes. Anybody having one next week?

Need something to wash down your Turducken? Try a tapioca
milk tea. "A popular import from Taiwan, the frothy beverage is
a mix of tea, milk, sugar and giant black tapioca balls served hot or cold.
Guhhh! Imagine slurping on your beverage and then... GLUCK!... a
big ball of gumminess gets shlucked through your straw. Gluck, gluck, gluck!
it catch on?
