I ate cow coronary heart in Peru. It was very tasty. It’s very darkish, with completely no fats in it, and somewhat chewy, however very gamey and iron-y. They say that corn and potatoes originated from Peru. They’ve all varieties of corn — like corn with kennels which can be large and purple — and purple potatoes, too. The ceviche down there, and in Chile, is superb. In Tahiti, they make ceviche with coconut milk; I feel the primary fish they use is tuna, however it appears to be like white as a result of they coat it with the coconut milk and all of the spices and whatnot. I ate an excessive amount of of that once I was there. Very, very dope.
I used to be a coward once I had fugu. It’s a toxic puffer fish, and I used to be very apprehensive after we ordered it in a restaurant in Japan. I requested the waiter, “How lengthy does it take to know that you simply’ve been poisoned?” — as a result of, apparently, a few folks a 12 months die there consuming this fish — and he stated that inside about 15 minutes you’d begin feeling ache. I ordered it and sat watching my brother and Steve [part of Sean’s management team] — they have been superb, so I ate it. It offers you a tingling feeling on your lips and tongue.
I make a extremely good shiitake mushroom stir-fry. We get them from a Chinese language grocery retailer and I go away them in a single day. To me, cooking takes observe and observe makes excellent. I used to do lodge administration in class, proper earlier than I broke. I did culinary there, too, and discovered about French delicacies and stuff like that. However I don’t normally cook dinner that a lot anymore. My brother and his spouse are the cooks within the household. After they host Christmas dinner, we’re licking our lips.
My three dream dinner visitors could be my pops, Donald Trump and Elon Musk. My pops handed away three years in the past, so I’d like to eat one meal with him once more. I’d need Donald Trump to have extra tradition in his life, so I’d invite him and feed him curry goat, in order that he’d cease being so ridiculously loopy. And Elon Musk as a result of it’d be good to have a businessperson.
