Condom Cuisine

Edible condoms might seem to undermine the very reason for using a condom to begin with but, in this case, it’s for a good cause. Hong Kong Chef Alvin Leung, Jr. unleashed a new raincoat-themed dish at a recent food congress in Milan: Sex on the Beach. SF Weekly described the plate of prophylactic goodness like this:

The edible “condom” is made by dunking a metal cigar tube into a food-grade polymer. It’s partially filled with a milky fluid of honey and Yunnan ham emulsion, arranged on powdered shiitake mushrooms (i.e., the “sand”).

What? No dental dams? Proceeds go to a local AIDS fund.
