In a short time, has provided plenty of material to make people queasy, from a YouTubed corpse to a president bragging of his stable genius. Raw onion, garlic, carrots, and other items enter and leave her mouth on camera while she gamely struggles to maintain composure. At the end, the turkey she stuffed comes out of the oven looking magazine-perfect. She kisses it, then eats it. An edited version, below, has received millions of views on Facebook and Twitter. The full, original clip is here.
Chef, author, and television Food Network personality Simmons recounts her life. Toronto-born before becoming a dedicated New Yorker, she had a unique upbringing in a family that valued the pleasures of good food. One of the aspects of her youth that sets Simmons apart is her deep attraction to South African food, developed on family visits to relatives there. She fell in love with dried meat strips beef, chicken, antelope, and ostrich , which she recalls with great sensory detail.
We'd like to start this off by saying: we're sorry if we go a little bit off the rails here. We need to talk to you about one of our most intense pet peeves when it comes to eating food, and we'll try to keep our composure while doing so. Open-mouth chewing makes us feel insane.
Premastication , pre-chewing , or kiss feeding is the act of chewing food for the purpose of physically breaking it down in order to feed another that is incapable of masticating the food by themselves. This is often done by the mother or relatives of a baby to produce baby food capable of being consumed by the child during the weaning process. The chewed food in the form of a bolus is transferred from the mouth of one individual to another, either directly mouth-to-mouth, via utensils, hands, or is further cooked or processed prior to feeding. The behaviour was common throughout human history and societies and observed in non-human animals.
