Cuba’s Secret Meat Obsession!! Dangerous Crocodile Catch and Cook!!!Feb 27, 2020
It would be great for the show if I could get close to the
crocodiles maybe even
catchthe Parisi and there is no element of danger well today we will leave the country's capital Havana and head east to the city from the casinos of the city of Vienna Beach. long colleton it's not hard to say we're kidding here even they're in
cubayou can't try this dish anywhere it's not even allowed but there's a little problem before we can have a bite we have to have our dinner and I hope we don't bite Oh, find him first.
My plan is to see if we can get around their usual rules and restrictions and have o Oh, ketchup, alligator and-you mean wrinkled. I touch them as if they were close. I'm going to help me out of this boat in Cuba Business owners and locals get up early to pick up fresh ingredients from small local markets like this one today we accompany
cookspecialist Alexis we are with the same crocodile
cookwhat's your time full role is that all of you do is cook crocodiles no its more like a seafood cook but crocodile is one of these especially in your restaurant you will be preparing a one of a kind crocodile how do you say crocodile?
Seafood with no money nothing says it has three flavors before cooking it may taste like chicken or pork but after cooking it tastes more like three so it tasted bad no it's not a come down it's like no one does that but I do right now. we go to a crocodile farm where he will
catcha crocodile in a second, me or weak. I need to tell the cameramen what to do. I am definitely here. I'm not trying to jump no I don't want a balloon to jump oh bungee jumping yeah four years ago or when I did a concept for a show called the year of fear I encouraged Auro to bungee jump which sadly it didn't make him happy.
They didn't allow me to bungee jump because I exceeded the weight limit thanks PA now I'm encouraging Auro to catch a giant reptile that doesn't make him happy either. Did you tell him you're looking for him right now? It's just going through or like hopes and dreams rushing into a spirit you hate to see, folks. I hate to see it. Can you translate that? It's like no way. all of me and you may only see a part of oral. I can see that alexis has shaken the confidence of orals, so before we go toe to toe with the oral gators and i'll deal in a back alley factory where they're kicking. one of the most unique foods in Cuba I brought them to a place where they produce cassava Khatami yes cassava is the most authentic we confirm today cassava is Cuban flatbread a staple dish in this region inherited directly from the Arawak indigenous people played a role important in all of
cuban history because since it only required a single ingredient cassava flour after they created the powder we come here and then my man cooks it for a bit ok let's try that's fascinating it reminds me of eating like a kind of circle that you mix with milk and sugar obviously doesn't have any flavor because it's just an ingredient for something else.
I think you are not extracting your palate because I can feel the flavors. seems perfect for soaking up some sauce and a few other flavors actually this is me to be in the company of all the flavors yeah we're like tamale Padma you know Timon and Pumbaa yeah I've heard right like that just repeat what you say and I say that they like this was my idea that is a good documentary but very sad no really yes it was a documentary yes I am educating myself well in a moment my friend or in a stick will face his greatest fear but before that we are stopping here LS Kapow where we finally get to taste cassava the way it's meant to be eaten I wish the guys at the factory would see us now because we look pretty foolish eating this raw but now we have the final dish accompanied by a smooth drink our sponsor Cola? are you sick of a Cola?
This is too much Cola and you shoot oh this is the government yes can we drink when we visit Cuba? American tourists are prohibited from spending money in any business owned by the Cuban government, from hotels to restaurants. like government owned fizzy drinks i think its still a defensible gray area oh i just made my life better i just drank it you're on your own shit dude what if i get arrested in the usa for drinking a government-owned soda, though I have to say pretty tasty, yeah, because it's hot candy. Let's try this. The outside is super chewy so you have to be very tender with it.
The sausage is delicious. Super interesting texture if you hand me this and ask me what it is. made of cassava, i never would have guessed that it is a great time to catch a crocodile and the place to do it in cuba is here creates darrow de crocodiles, a crocodile farm that has been protecting human crocodiles for over 59 years sir, first of all thank you for joining us today meet DIA he has been studying crocodiles here for 17 years today he is giving us a VIP tour ending hands on experience keeping in mind this is a place for conservation why is it okay that we eat crocodile
meatso well? well that's a good question we have 4000 animals here we can use 100 a year from the sale of the
meatand the leather I mean we use all the money for conservation of course it's very expensive to have like 4000 crocodiles and not they eat corn. they are eating like a meat yes but before we catch the crocodile we need to understand the crocodile so in the end it shows us more so this is the breeding area yes it is for evolution but also for study like this what are you looking at. to breed these are the strongest land crocodiles in the world meaning they are just as comfortable on land as they are in water despite their modest size they can be very
dangerousto humans have you ever been bitten? , yes, what should I do? on the nose, uh, yeah, there's weakness, oh, it's Billy Bob, put it on your nose, it's his weakness, you can feel them with you, he didn't park in Venice, don't give yourself a box, don't turn your back on me, put on your back. on mine ok oh right now i think we are good finally with valuable background knowledge in mind we are ready to go toe to toe with the crocs or a listen you have to approach these courage and reasonable reason to build courage i can have a history of pushing auro into situations he's not totally comfortable with just no i don't want other women but that's because auro is my brother and that's what brothers do they push each other they bite him we can definitely put this on oh whoa hey dude you don't have to do any more actin g I don't act to be afraid.
I feel like your nipple is Gold's little brother. I feel like it's my duty to lead by example, but I think I'm going to get this one right here. I don't even want to catch crocodiles, huh? I have one. I'm going to roll it up. Come on, friend. Can we get Oro Oro involved? Oro said he wants you here. You gotta trust me man it's alright hold your tail don't worry it's alright you got this man committed when you do it 100% yeah you got it I got it oh well you did you did i did i'm proud of you man that was pretty epic dude i did about the crocodile is shipped and processing begins the skin can be sold to help fund the efforts at this center the meat is headed to the restaurant where alexis is waiting for us do you know how we got this crocodile my the gold man caught this with his hand personifies very well he would have made it would have been a hatchery he has you there he is small he is ok have you been able to speak english? all this time haha Alexis communicates beautifully through his words but even more beautifully through his food in these places he is known as a crocodile master chef and today he will prepare us three unique crocodile dishes first tail steak tips crocodile Punta Punta with vegetables now far away before you put it on it smells like fish but as you cook it it changes the smell it becomes more porky more chicken eats more grown up G lets try it mmm I like that oh my god it tastes like a serving real a little bit of everything but you know how it looks aisle and the meat is classy the 1% meat while the grill is still hot alexis throws in the butterfly tail meat for a dish i call alligator pork chops i'm going to try this here Same if you just gave me this I'd say it's a large pork chop, yes paternally it looks a bit like pork with a large fish texture. a completely new text ture is a texture that is sort of in between chicken and fish is a cheese in weave after the enchilada starting with their house tomato and chili sauce then crocks neck and seasoning with black pepper and simmering until fully cooked finished with the veggies and veggies from the market this morning Bon appetit my friend if you didn't know this is a gator we'll just say this is really for me yes I would say the chop pork could be some kind of fish and could be chicken, it's over. the place actually after chewing it and giving me a bit of a potato flavor so it may be the sea potato or the swamp potato right how long have you had this restaurant seven seven years crushed it yeah well i'm really impressed sir you killed it thank you my friend indeed or i will have to kill you but you did well cooking next time on our best foodie trip in cuba we headed up the east coast to the cooperative town of barra where We are going to participate in a Cuban party like you have never seen before.
