Why would anyone pay $600 per pound to drink coffee brewed from beans extracted from the feces of a cat-like creature? Or drool over a slice of cheese infested with squirming with maggots, or salad oil pressed from argan nuts excreted by goats? Dr. Massimo Marcone investigates and reveals the hidden secrets behind these bizarre foods. Part travelogue, part scientific investigation, In Bad Taste journeys into remote regions around the world in search of Kopi Luwak scat coffee, argan oil, edible birds nests, and more.
