Balls in the Air: Testicles Are Trendy!


Last weekend, the World Testicle Cooking Championship took place in Serbia, where the “white kidneys” of bull, boar, camel, ostrich and kangaroo were prepared in various ways (testicle pizza, anyone?). Meanwhile in Colorado, competitive eater Pat “Deep Dish” Bertoletti set a record by downing nearly four pounds of deep-fried bull gonads in ten minutes, according to ESPN (yes, ESPN. Insert “baller” joke here). Bertoletti paired the Rocky Mountain oysters with Crystal Light, naturally. If you’re sorry you missed all this and you’re thinking, “Oh nuts,” don’t despair — Rocky Mountain oysters happen to be on the menu at Da Silvano Bistecca, and tonight they’ll be a featured ingredient on Chopped Champions. According to the Food Network synopsis, “creative juices flow.”
