Some foods are so delicious that we almost forget what weird names they have, until we have to explain them to someone from a different cuisine. "Eton Mess," for example: sounds like a tangle of dirty socks, tastes like you saved the King of the Strawberries in your last life and he's still grateful. Similarly, "Dirty Rice" sounds like something you'd be served from an unsanitary kitchen, but is actually a staple of Cajun cooking, getting its name -- and distinctive color -- from chicken giblets or pork sausage, seasoned with the "holy trinity" of peppers, onions and celery.
What foods do you like that taste better than they sound?
