I can't believe another TBNT Thursday is here. Where has the time gone?
This week's feature is an international dish and comes to you from the Best of Weight Watchers Magazine, 1974. In the spirit of TBNT Thursday, I have once again chosen a Retro WW dish that even I would not eat. But this week I have taken it a step further: this Retro WW dish is one that I can barely even look at without gagging.
I know we should all be open to trying new things... And maybe I am a bit of a prude. But a pyramid of raw meat and fish piled high upon a platter sends a shudder through the core of my being.
The "HO GO II" is a light & lively party dish in which each person chooses his/her own portion of fish, shellfish, or liver using a fork (or chopsticks) and then cooks the food one piece at a time in a cauldron of bubbling bouillon.
Here's a closer look...
Now, maybe under the proper conditions and with the strict supervision of a trained professional chef--I might be OK with this. But something tells me the average party-thrower in the 1970's sent a few of her guests home with a serious case of food poisoning after serving up the "HO GO II"...
Welcome to my groovy party! Here's a fork, some raw meat and some boiling hot bouillon! Oh--and by the way, grab yourself a bucket. It's going to be a long night!
Um...Thanks, But No Thanks.
