Strange Chinese delicacy of the week 8

As there was no competition last week, and we were pretty tardy anyway, we thought we would make it a specially interesting quiz this week.

We have not tried this delight, but it is used in cookery and in medicine. And despite its exotic appearence, it tastes pretty bland so I hear.

Tip: it is an echinoderm. Like that helps, you say.

Answers below please!

Everyone needs a set of mini clubs on a plate


  1. Sea cucumber

  2. dried sea cucumber!!

  3. damn it – carlton beat me to it! sea cucumber for sure – and the echinoderm clue did give it away!

    • You’re all very good. Dom, as you are here first, do you want yours to eat dead or alive?!
