    Food’s such an interesting thing; there are some things regionally here in America that are really out there. In the Midwest one day, we were eating cow’s testicles deep fried – Rocky Mountain Oysters – quite normal for that part of town. And I think back to when I was a kid and my mom would cook lamb’s brain – and she’d call it “lamb’s fry.” As kids we had no idea – it had breadcrumbs with lemon squeezed on it.

    It’s interesting how culturally you can cross so many boundaries, and what’s absolutely normal in one place. Here in California we think the cuisine is quite conservative, but I don’t see it that way. L.A. is the home of incredible sushi, and they eat stuff that my dad would never dream of eating. He’d be quite happy with a steak and kidney pie.
