Eating Deep Fried Tarantula in Cambodia - Gordon Ramsay

  • Published on Jun 8, 2011
  • Gordon Ramsay and the hunters take the tarantula to a local cook. Chef Ramsay isn't too keen on the flavour of these snacks.
    From season 2 of Gordon's Great Escape. For the second series, Gordon goes back on the road doing what he loves most: searching out the best food in the world and testing himself in extreme and demanding situations. This time he's not just taking on one country, his appetite for adventure will take him through four of South East Asia's most exciting culinary destinations: Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam.

    its probably something no one likes the first few times, but then it grows on you. All cuisines have that. Also it may be a niche thing only some people like in cambodian cuisine. It is pretty popular, but its recent, and popular is still relative.

    Just because some people eat it doesn't mean it's good. If the only living thing in your area is the tarantula and there aren't enough plants to sustain you, you'll find a way to eat the tarantula no matter how disgusting it is.

    When you think about it, the exoskeleton is just like a natural breading. It's just hard on the outside and soft on the inside. If you ignore that the spider has guts, I'm sure it tastes fine
