中国人爱吃的皮蛋,在部分美国人眼中成了“最恶心的食物”,中西文化差异可见一斑。

  昨日,美国有线电视新闻网(即CNN)刊登道歉声明,称皮蛋是一种美食,并表示CNN在报道中将皮蛋列为“全球十大最恶心食物”榜首的做法,无意冒犯中国文化。

  这项“世界最恶心食物”评选在网络风靡一时,CNN日前予以报道并发布排行榜,皮蛋位列榜首。文中引述网友诸如“恶魔煮的蛋”、“恶心至极”等评价,惹全球华人不满,认为存在种族歧视。

  除皮蛋外,韩国的狗肉、菲律宾的树虫和炸青蛙、柬埔寨的炒狼蛛等食物也在列。

  中国一家皮蛋销售企业对此强烈不满,与CNN北京办事处取得联系并传真《抗议信》,称全球约有20亿人是皮蛋消费者,包括肯德基在中国也采购皮蛋做粥。信中说“你们敢对其他国家传统食品说三道四,肆意贬损,源于你们的无知和傲慢,是对他国文化习俗的不敬”,要求美方道歉并取消评选结果。

  CNN昨日在网站用中文、英文作出官方道歉,称报道本意不是要冒犯任何人,更无意冒犯中国文化。

菲律宾的树虫和炸青蛙恶心?菲律宾农民还流行吃田鼠、蝗虫、鸭仔蛋。

只能说Danny Holwerda没有见识。

而且Danny Holwerda的形容词 “THE STUPIDEST MOTHERF**KING THING I HAVE EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH.” 实在是太低级了吧!

Acquired taste Jul 9, 2011

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acquired_taste

Last I checked, there is no censorship when it comes to the subject of food in the U.S., at least up until now. So, what some iReporter wants to say in his food blog is his business. There's no need to be all up in arms.

Like many others, there's plenty of food I don't like on this planet some folks think of as delicacies either. The famous haggis in Scottish cuisine being one, for example. Haggis has long had a bad reputation in this country. Personally, being someone who dislikes tripe and the gaminess of goat meat, I have to agree. I wouldn't touch it if it were ever served to me.

How this relates to disrespecting a culture and an ethnic group is beyond me.




http://www.salon.com/food/francis_lam/2011/01/26/haggis_tasting

Is haggis really that disgusting?

It's a sheep organ-stuffed sheep stomach. It's Scotland's national dish. What's not to love?

Who's afraid of the big bad haggis? Well, plenty of people, even if it is the national dish of Scotland. One of the earliest gross-out foods I can remember kids squealing about, it's usually described as a boiled bag of sheep guts, but its charms are greater than even that. Every year on Jan. 25, Scots and their friends -- haggis lovers and those-who-will-go-hungry -- sit down to suppers honoring the poet Rabbit Buns, who, if you are not familiar with the utterly charming and sometimes-indecipherable Scottish accent, is also known as Robert Burns. At these suppers, revelers eat a proper haggis, recite lines of verse, drink drams of Scotch, and watch "Braveheart" again. (Just kidding about the last thing, people! OK, mostly kidding.)

So, anyway, haggis is a sheep's stomach filled with miscellaneous sheep parts -- heart, lungs, you get the picture. Stuff my Scottish friend Pam refers to as "the hearty meat," and I don't think that's a pun. Americans have not, for decades, been very big on organ meats, and so even though I grew up with liver and tongue and would eat tripe and spleen till the cows came home (to reclaim them?), for me, there's still some vestige of childhood blech that follows haggis around.

Here's one that's really revolting from the Philippines ...

That doesn't mean anyone who's not able to stomach it does't respect the Philippine culture.

Please be more considerate of others. I think your comments are extremely offensive.

Thanks for the image, pk.

IMO, at least dogs give back, not a trait that every human possesses.

Good then. In that case, please don't go around hinting it. I'd appreciate it if you could kindly clarify what you meant by what you said in this other thread.

Most people just keep silent (maybe only reading the posts), while only a few express their opinions on the forum.

Why do you think I am suggesting you ?
