A woman has horrified internet users by revealing her tongue-in-cheek recipe for making raw steak tartare – using just her mouth.
The Youtube presenter, who calls herself Riva Godfrey, opens the video by welcoming viewers to another episode of her show, Cooking with Your Mouth.
With an air of absolute authority, she assures viewers that that they will make the iconic French uncooked meat dish “using the safety and comfort of your own mouth.”
“We will be making a very lovely steak tartare, using the absolute safety of using no utensils,” she says.
“First we begin with our steak, obviously I don’t have a sharp knife,” she says in a matter-of-fact tone looking directly at the camera.
Her deadpan style continues as she assures viewers that she will gnaw on the raw meat “bit by bit until she can get the right sized cube.”
“Really you’re just mincing with your mouth,” she says.
“It’s very good quality steak, I can tell,” she says earnestly.
In stomach-churning scenes, she nibbles on the edge of the raw steak, before spitting it out in a mixing bowl.
“There we go, tiny little pieces from my mouth to someone else’s,” she says.
After the meat has been chewed, she moves on to parsley and lashes that in her mouth too before chewing it and spitting it out into the mixing bowl.
Next are ‘beautifully salty’ capers followed by shallots – which she warns are ‘quite hard to take but much safer to chew than chopping them with a knife or blender.’
Green chilly is next. She grimaces as she chews and declares it is hot.
Cheese follows and then gerkin.
“Mouth watering, mouth made,” she says from her kitchen set.
In the next seriously vomit-inducing scene, she takes the top off a raw egg and sucks the white out so that she is just left with the yolk, which she then mixes merrily with the rest of the chewed, saliva-moistened ingredients.
“Beautiful, steak tartare made in absolute safety,” she declares with satisfaction and just a little glee.
And like any good TV chef she eats it afterwards, pretending to relish the mouth-made dish.
But despite Ms Godfrey’s serious nature throughout the video, it was created as performance art.
Ms Godfrey’s real name is Iska Lupton and the video was created by Australian filmmaker Nathan Ceddia.
