Yesterday I proclaimed my affection for my Microplane zester. It perfectly extracts every bit of zest from any citrus and leaves the white pith behind. It also perfectly grates Parmesan cheese. It's so easy to use that I can let my 4 year old zest an orange for me. A Microplane is a excellent kitchen tool to keep in the utensil drawer. And I love mine so much that I want you to have one too.
I am feeling generous. I am giving away a Microplane zester. Leave a comment by evening time Saturday, January 9. In your comment, tell me the most disgusting/weird thing you have ever eaten. And tell me if it was surpisingly good or expectedly terrible.
My answer? I think the weirdest thing I have eaten has got to be tripe. I know, it's not that weird, but it is for a white girl. The menudo was delicious, but the tripe made me want to hurl. Just the look of it alone is enough for me to walk away.
