Author Mitzi Szereto Goes Prowling for Jellied Eels

Forget that Andrew Zimmern creep, there is nothing bizarre about a man who would eat anything and everything served to up him (in front of a camera crew or not). Besides, he hardly works at it or works up to it. Do you really want to see brave? Author Mitzi Szereto braves, the rudest of London denizens, as well as the scary monsters and super creeps that scamper around the English capital, in order to find jellied eels.

Jellied eels, people.

Damn, you're a better blogger than I am, Gunga Mitzi. At any rate, here's the first episode of Mitzi TV, enjoy.

I worked east london for about 10 years and, yes, I tried jellied eels. And they are great! No, I lied. Horrible. Horrible. Good on Misty for trying!

Paulie Decibels,

Mitzi has the heart of lion, and the stomach of alligator for being able to digest that.

There a certain dishes like this and thousand year-old eggs, that defy logic. We have refrigeration now, stop the insanity!

Mitzi Szereto said...

yeah, i can still taste them. eels belong in sushi, not in a cold bowl of jelly.

Even with sushi, it's no good if the eels are too bony.

Oh, and welcome.
