If you saw that episode of Man Vs Wild where Bear drank reindeer blood, were unimpressed, and immediately turned it back to Swift Justice with Jackie Glass, Delicias has just the meal for you. Available by special request this Fall, it's called The Creepy Crawler Dinner, and features five-courses made up of foods you'd normally only eat on a particularly fancy dare at an extremely classy middle school. Three highlights:
Chili-Lime Cricket Salad with Compressed Melon, Heirloom Tomato, Cucumber and Honey Lime Vinaigrette: Inspired by either a salad the Chef saw while in Mexico or his hatred for that top hat-clad bug that acted as Pinocchio's conscience, this dish involves boiling, frying and tossing the crickets with lime juice, zest, salt & cayenne pepper, then scattering them over veggies and melon (which itself is cut and marinated under pressure with lime and habanero olive oil).
BBQ Baby Lamb Sweetbreads: Pretty self-explanatory, except to say that these sweetbreads aren't exactly those things you get recently leavened from the bakery. Mostly because they're made of pancreas.
"Dirt and Worms" Dessert: Don't worry, you're definitely not eating dirt. It's ground up chocolate. But actually, do worry, you're definitely eating worms, though they have been sitting in a jar eating nothing but basil for 48 hours before you bring them to their swift and final justice.
