Eating can be a real adventure and a way to connect with people when you’re willing to try new things. Which is why we’re heading to four countries to sample four unique dishes. In Japan, we’re eating cycad—a plant that can be deadly. In England, we’re chewing on jellied eels. We’re snacking on deep-fried scorpions and tarantulas in Thailand. And we’re popping paan that’s literally on fire into our mouths in India.
