One of the more unusual reference books I have on my shelf is one from Franz Ferdinand singer, Alex Kapranos. It’s called Sound Bites: Eating on Tour with Franz Ferdinand. This grew out of a column that Alex was asked to write about food for the Guardian newspaper.
Alex told me that before this, he knew nothing about food but was keen for the challenge. Some of the things these guys ate while they toured the world may make you feel a little queasy. I mean, how hungry do you have to be to eat Argentine bulls’ testicles? According to Alex, they were truly awful. But you think that’s bad, how about a meal that includes eating sheep anuses.
You read that right. The lengths people will go for their art…
