100 Foods

Found this on someone else's blog. Thought it'd be a fun break from the recipes. Plus, last night's dinner was a disaster. Anyway, items in bold are one's that I've had. Items with a strike are one's I wouldn't try if you paid me. Oddly, there's very few things on this list that I wouldn't eat.

1. Venison
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos Rancheros
4. steak tartare
5. Crocodile
6. Black pudding (also known as blood pudding)
7. Cheese fondue
8. Carp
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush
11. Calamari
12. Pho
13. PB & J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi
15. Hot dog from a street cart
16. epoisses
17. Black truffle
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
19. Steamed pork buns
20. Pistachio ice cream
21. Heirloom tomatoes
22. Fresh wild berries
23. Foie gras
24. rice and beans
25. Brawn , or head cheese - yeah and never again
26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper - not raw but I've used them in cooking

45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more

68. haggis
69. Fried plantain
