As a chef—and an avid eater of all dishes, unusual and normal—I have sampled several seemingly strange foods from around the world. And now I’m encouraging you to do the same. Why? Because if your burger with ketchup and mayo routine is getting stale, so are you. Now’s the time to switch it up, to be bold, and to stun everyone with your Anthony Bourdain-like culinary expertise. Try these wild ideas and you’ll impress everyone at the cookout way more than that guy with the foreign sports car—and tantalize your taste buds, too.
