Serbian Chef Releases All-Testicle Cookbook

Adventurous Cookbook Gets the Ball Rolling

When I need culinary inspiration, I turn to one of many cookbooks. But unless I'm feeling extraordinarily creative, I'm not sure I'll be turning to the latest cookbook to hit the circuit. The Testicle Cookbook: Cooking With Balls was just published by Ljubomir Erovic. Erovic is a chef in Serbia, a country where testicles are a prized delicacy. In the mood for goulash? Then why not experiment with a testicle version? Love pizza? Make his cheese, onion, pepper, bacon, and bull's testicle pizza. Of course, the art of eating testicles is nothing new: around the world, they've long been touted as aphrodisiacs.

According to Erovic, who organizes an annual testicle-cooking championship, the tastiest testicles come from bulls, ostriches, and stallions, although he claims, "All testicles can be eaten. Except human, of course."

What's your reaction to this? If you're really curious, you can view a bit of the book online. Do you have the balls to try any of the recipes?

(Thinking of the classic SNL skit.) I wonder if there is a recipe in the book for Schweaty Balls? ;)

I am buying this book. Hands down. I wish I could come up with something borderline inappropriate to post, but I'm too tired. It's been a long day!

I remember cutting bulls testicles for a biology class in HS and I don't plan on getting close to them any time soon.

i'm thinking that i would have to pass on this one. typically i don't mind looking through cookbooks even if it's for stuff that i don't eat but this one just doesn't seem to be appetizing and i think that it would turn me off of eating - but that's just me i guess. i may not be as adventurous as i thought!

I was tricked into eating rocky mountain oysters once and I'd never try them again.

I love Bull testicles! Yes I do eat balls! And it's great. My father prepare them with a sauce "chien", a specility from Martinique (salt and pepper, lime, hot pepper, shallot, garlic, oil, thym, laurel, parsil, well the tropical equivalents actually)and then grill them. Delicious. You should try some day.

That's so gross! Here in Texas, they're called 'Mountain Oysters'. They're cooked like chicken fried steak. There's NO way this 'ole girl would EVER eat them!!

This might just be the funniest thing I've seen today!!! What a strange cookbook! Who'd actually buy it? Well, my grandma likes to make tongue and tripe (AHH!), saying it's a delicacy for her and my grandpa, so she might like this book. But still!!

"Do you have the balls to try any of the recipes?" hahaha, how very punny!! And if ALL balls are edible then (other then the legal reasons) why arent human balls? I'm literally lmao right now but I'm also highly disturbed. This cookbook is like Andrew Zimmern 's (from Bizzare Foods with Andrew Zimmern) dream come true.

I second Giggle! That was brilliant! But I think I'll pass on the nuts, thank you.

I didn't think you could top the "May Contain Nuts" headline I saw, YumSugar, but you're definitely a contender! Bwahahahaha! :ROTFL:

Just don't watch the peeling vid. I am in no way weak stomached and I gagged for a second. I try to remain open to new food experiences, but I don't think I'll ever have a need for Erovic's cookbook.
