World Testicle Cooking Championship
Dare you eat?
Teams of chefs cooked up bull, boar, camel and kangaroo in a remote Serbian mountain village a the seventh annual World Testicle Cooking Championship.
The food, politely called “white kidneys” in Serbian, is believed to be rich in testosterone. In the Balkans, it is considered to help men’s libido.
“This festival is all about fun, food and bravery,” said Ljubomir Erovic, the Serbian chef and testicles gourmand specialist who organises the bizarre cooking festival and has published a testicle cookery book.
“The bulls’ testicles are the best, goulash style,” said last year’s winner Zoltan Levai, stirring a metal pot heated by a wood fire and filled with vegetables and large testicles that he said were provided from a state-run slaughter house.
The festival – which includes dishes like testicle pizza and testicles in béchamel sauce flavoured with a variety of herbs found in the region.
