I’ve been hooked on The Sneeze ever since reading Steve’s review of Beggin’ Strips. I’ve been waiting so patiently for another volume of Steve, Don’t Eat it! which is why I should be excited that Volume 7 just came out. Actually, I was excited for the first two seconds before I realized he was eating Huitlacoche. See, I’m planning a tamale party for next weekend and Tamales de Huitlacoche are on the menu.

I debated. Should I read it? If I read it will I have to change the menu? Will Huitlacoche really be that bad? Finally I just had to. Halfway through the post, right about where he shows the side-by-side comparison of the kernels, I lost it. I’m currently looking for a new tamale recipe.

I’m throwing down the gauntlet, Steve. Will you eat balut?
