Blog: Okay okay!

A few of you want to know more about the deadly delicacy of puffer fish, as mentioned in last week's newsletter, replicated below. I've found a pretty good article on the Slow Food site.

Most helpfully, it sheds light on the mentality of people who eat the stuff. On my surf in search of fugu information I found another account from a journalist who was sent to investigate the puffer fish phenomenon – strictly as an observer. She was mortified to be presented with a plate of it to try and learned something important about herself when she realised she’d rather die eating it than die of embarrassment refusing it. I can relate to that. Obviously she lived to tell the tale.
