Anthony Bourdain digs in: Bull penis, and an embryonic egg are on the menu

In advance of his new CNN program, on Thursday evening Anthony Bourdain joined Piers Morgan – and his live audience – for a primetime interview designed to detail the soon to debut show.

However, in addition to chatter about the show itself, the "Piers Morgan Live" host surprised the chef with an impromptu tasting menu designed to test even Bourdain's distinguished palette.

With those gathered in the studio looking on in horror, the multiple New York Times bestselling author proceeded to sample a list of fare that included:

~ Bull Penis
~ Turkey Testicles
~ Steamed Pig Feet
~ Fried Frog
~ Maggot Fried Rice
~ Goose Intestines in black bean sauce
~ Balut (Embryonic Egg)

Displaying the casual confidence that has come to define his career, the host of the upcoming "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown" tried each item, seeming entirely unphased in the process.

Watch the clip to see Bourdain dive into each dish, then catch the premier episode of his new show this Sunday night at 9 on CNN.

    Ha, I'll bet Bourdain swallows one or takes one at least once a day.

      Yeah, probably a personal preference. Mine was white gold when I was married.

    I wonder how many animals have suffered just so this guy can try to look "macho". I won't watch his show.

      The animals didn't suffer and it's fine that you won't watch his show. I'm sure he Bourdain won't mind.

    I used to enjoy Bourdain, but I can 't even watch him anymore. What value is there in watching someone get stupid drunk or eating penis parts? If that is the only talent you have, Anthony, get a new job.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t speak about these subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!
