Animal Planet’s ‘Eating The Enemy’ – Watch STRETCH Turn Invasive Species Into Flavorful Meals.

Animal Planet's Eating the Enemy.A good watch is the Animal Planet’s new show “Eating the Enemy.” The show’s premise is simple – send restaurant owner STRETCH into an area dealing with an invasive species (asian carp and wild boar) and he’ll develop a menu item using it. STRETCH doesn’t create the entree on his own; he meets with local chefs to discover the seasonings to use, helps catch the main course and then prepares a meal at a local restaurant hoping they’ll add it to their menu. In the first episode, STRETCH makes sliders using asian carp (or “Bayou bass”) as his main ingredient. I didn’t watch the second episode about hunting and preparing wild boars in Texas.

If you get a chance, check out “Eating the Enemy.” The show next airs on December 31st. A nice bonus of the show is that they cut to the chase and keep it to 30 minutes. [Animal Planet]

Jubbling Should Not Be A Crime: Kentucky Restaurant Closed Down After Rolling In The Roadkill.

Red Flower Chinese RestaurantThe Red Flower Chinese Restaurant really screwed up by rolling some freshly road-killed deer through their front door. Pretty amateur if you ask me. One patron’s take:

“There was this tail, a big, white, fuzzy, tail. A leg was sticking out of the garbage can. One of the other employees was mopping up blood that was dripping out of the garbage and on to the floor.”

From the video, you know what the restaurant did is beyond sketchy when a Kentucky Environmental Health Inspector says it’s the craziest thing he’s ever seen.

Now Jubbling is a huge proponent of limiting food waste but we don’t recommend eating roadkill. If you’re cool with it and you find a newly departed opossum (possum-nuggets?) on the side of the road, bring it in through the back door and not the front. No sense in attracting a lot of pre-meal attention to your discovery and soon-to-be family dinner. [Consumerist]
