My Italian mother-in-law raised my husband on a diet of fried cow brains, liver, tripe, stuffed chicken necks (with the head still attatched…eeewwww!), wild boar, deer, rabbits and pigeons…Thank god I'm not competing with her!! I've only tried the wild boar, rabbits and deer, and hell will freeze over before I cook a chicken head stuffed with ground beef. Good thing he likes hamburgers, huh? Sheesh.
When you started off with Beef Tongue I was “oh no, please not that!” My dear mother-in-law use to make that and I tried REALLY hard to like it and even (God forbid!) to cook it for my dear sweet love. I refuse to do it anymore…so gross! My love now appreciates after 32 years of marriage anything I cook…even if we laugh at it together on what it tastes like…if it is wonderful..he does let me know and I smile all over…
