TESTICLE CHEF LJUBOMIR EROVIC
Festival founder and the world best testicle chef
1.What’s your personal story? How did you get an idea to prepare this kind of food?
Ever since I was a little boy I listened to the elderly talking about testicles, when well prepared and cooked, can stimulate sexual activities.
It seemed funny and stupid to me then, until as a grown up man I tasted delicious goulash at a party sometime at the end of the ‘80s.
I was told that it was a rabbit goulash. I couldn’t sleep that very night because I became incredibly aroused and felt a real “charge of positive energy“ that I had to use somehow. I had never experienced anything like that before.
The next day, after the wild night, I found out from a friend that the dish we ate was testicle goulash.
I suddenly realized that it could be a great way to help the sexually troubled ones .
The way to better sexual life through food and not drugs is the idea that keeps running through my mind.
I’ve been preparing traditional Balkan testicles dishes for the last 30 years. I’ve learnt these recipes from my mother, from my Nan and my friends.
2.How do the cooked testicles taste like? What testicles actually contain?
When people try new food they are usually told that it tastes like chicken. But, testicles really don’t taste like chicken. It tastes more like game meat for example, deer goulash or wild rabbit, as it has a strong and distinctive taste.
Testicles are rich with testosterones, calories and minerals. Please bear in mind that some of those dishes, goulash in particular, should not be on a regular daily menu as they are very rich and fattening. But, it’s for good sex life.
3.Is it true that testicles can be a good an alternative to Viagra or Cialis?
Yes, it is true that testicles dishes can be alternative to synthetic drugs like Viagra, and what is more important they is healthier . My friends and I tested effects of these specialities .
Try my goulash and you’ll feel an extraordinary energy that you want to share in bed with the person you love. It doesn’t works just mechanically but holistically – it also gives you this glowing , nice feeling in your body and your mind. For preparing the testicles goulash I also use lots of herbs that I find in my garden or in the hills around the town where I live, for example, thyme , milfoil, basil . What is also important to know is that these specialties go well with home-made brandy and wine. It is not scientifically proven that testicles improve sexual life, but I truly believe that they do, ask me and other people who tried them.
4.What kind of reaction is your book getting?
The reactions vary. Some people are shocked by the book, but majority think that it is all normal. I get emails from people asking me to add new recipes or asking me how and when to consume the dishes. It is surprising that the book is mainly bought by women. I don’t know the reason behind this – is it to do with the aphrodisiac properties of the dishes or just out of curiosity. I have no idea. You have to understand that this kind of food is like any other food.
5.Is preparing testicles dishes dying tradition or it has always been strong?
Testicles have been consumed since the time immemorial not only here in Serbia and the Balkans but around the world but it became forgotten with modern fast food. I feel I’ve resurrected that long tradition not only with this book of recipes but also with organizing annual World Testicles Championship.
