WATCH: Heston Blumenthal Approves Of This 20-Animal Turducken Frankenstein
Society, how depraved can you get? Turduckens (a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey) were bad enough. Epic Meal Time’s TurBacon (five birds in a pig) was even more messed up. But an Australian radio show took the Turducken to new levels of insanity: 20 animals stuffed inside a pig. And Heston Blumenthal is proud of it?! Mr. Blumenthal, you’re an enabler.
First of all, we feel fundamentally uncomfortable with the idea of a pigeon inside a rabbit inside a wallaby inside a kangaroo. That’s just, like, horror movie-level barbarism. But apparently not for Heston, he of the insanely huge foods. In an email to Merrick and the Highway Patrol, he applauded this dubious innovation, praising its “pretty impressive range of meats”:
I was thinking how do you stuff an Emu into a Wallaby, I thought it was going to be a real challenge, but it sounds fascinating! It sounds like you’ve gone for the most ambitious and ridiculous turducken… It sounds brilliant, the more ridiculous the better, any disbelievers will be converted!
We don’t even want to list the animals used in this , so we’ll use this handy chart from Merrick and the Highway Patrol (courtesy of HuffPost) to list the Aussie-inspired ingredients of this “Turducken Ridiculous”:
And for people out there who are as degenerate as Mr. Blumenthal (we’re looking at you, cannibal cooking instructor Jose Andres), here’s a video of them creating the Turducken Ridiculous.
