Calf fries. When branding the calves they also castrate them. The smell is something I’ll never forget. They’re also called Rocky Mountain Oysters.

Human placenta. I did it because I encapsulated my sister’s for her, and I just figured why not try it as well. It was pretty intense.

I had snail in Indonesia. It was kind of squishy and weird, but it tasted pretty good overall.

Bull testicles with a gorgonzola cream sauce at Gabriella Cafe. It tasted kind of like beef tongue.

The one that I enjoyed the most was fried calves’ brains at a little stand in Florence.
