It is all about food...literally

A meme lifted from Dr. Steph. This is the Omnivore's Hundred list of foods the gastronomic Andrew Wheeler thinks everyone should try at least once in their lives.

The rules of the meme: bold those you have tried, strikethrough those you wouldn't eat on a bet.
I'm pretty adventurous but, apparantly, when I don't like something (which isn't often) I really don't like it and won't touch it (see bugs, spicy, hard likker, and coffee)

Venison (the grandparents used to hunt for their winter meat. I've never had it prepared as well as my Grandmother and I mourn her corn meal mush made with venison drippings)
Nettle tea
Huevos rancheros
Steak tartare
Crocodile
Black pudding
Cheese fondue

Carp
Borscht
Baba ghanoush
Calamari
Pho
PB&J sandwich
Aloo gobi (didn't even realize that I had had this until I looked it up)
Hot dog from a street cart

Epoisses
Black truffle
Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
Steamed pork buns (I don't even really understand what this is. I may have had it because I do love my pork, but the bun part throws me)
Pistachio ice cream
Heirloom tomatoes
Fresh wild berries (yum, the advantage of living in the Pacific NW, I have been able to walk outside my door and eat strawberries, blackberries or blueberries off the bush. Not to mention cherries, apples and pears right off the tree)
Foie gras
Rice and beans
Brawn, or head cheese
Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper (I have a very sensitive palette, I can't take these hot peppers).
Dulce de leche
Oysters
Baklava
Bagna cauda (although when I looked it up it sounds wonderful!)
Wasabi peas
Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl

Salted lassi (I haven't had Bhang Lassi either)
Sauerkraut
Root beer float

Cognac with a fat cigar

Clotted cream tea
Vodka jelly
Gumbo
Oxtail
Curried goat
Whole insects (No way, no how)
Phaal (sensitive palette, remember?)
Goat’s milk
Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more
Fugu
Chicken tikka masala
Eel
Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut (but I don't know what the fuss is. Now a VooDoo donut, THAT is worth some fuss)
Sea urchin
Prickly pear
Umeboshi
Abalone
Paneer
McDonald’s Big Mac Meal
Spaetzle
Dirty gin martini (just smelling a martini makes me gag)
Beer above 8% ABV
Poutine (but I must have some!)
Carob chips
S’mores
Sweetbreads
Kaolin (I couldn't figure out what this was. When I looked it up I could only find reference to a mineral and a treatment for toxicity)
Currywurst
Durian
(I have always wanted to try this!)
Frogs’ legs
Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake (yummmm, fair food...)
Haggis

Fried plantain (loved it but when I tried to make it it tasted terrible!)
Chitterlings, or andouillette
Gazpacho
Caviar and blini
Louche absinthe
Gjetost, or brunost

Goulash
Flowers (pansies and nasturtiums)
Horse
Criollo chocolate

Soft shell crab (too much like insects)
Rose harissa
Catfish
Mole poblano
Bagel and lox

Polenta
Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee (I hate the taste of coffee)
Snake

Comments

My list will have many more strikethroughs than yours.

Mocha? Do you do mocha?

Most mocha tastes like coffee which means it is gross! No Mocha. I can take just a wee bit to give chocolate a bite like dark chocolate but no more.
