Foodie Proof

Last year I came across this list via a facebook app and did a blog about how many of these "true Foodie" foods I had eaten. At the time I had tried 63 or the 100.....let's see where I am a year later? After all one of my 30 during 30 is to try as many new foods as possible.


Key:
Added since January 2012
Still haven't tried
Already tried as of January 2012
Abalone
Absinthe
Borscht
Fried Catfish
Fried Green Tomatoes
Fried Plantain
Paneer
Polenta
Wasabi Peas
Zucchini flowers
 
 
(I don't think that's too bad. Ten new foods in about 15-17 months. I went from 63 to 73!)
 
Bird's Nest Soup - probably won't ever try, not because I'm not willing to eat nests made with bird spit but because they are so expensive and to harvest the nests means to destroy an eco system and bird home.
Black Pudding
Carp
Chitlins - only if they are cleaned REALLY REALLY REALLY well.
Cognac
Crickets
Currywurst
Dandelion Wine
Frito Pie - I'm not sure if I have had this or not so I'm keeping it on the "not" list for now
Fugu
Gazpacho
Goulash
Haggis
Head Cheese
Kangaroo
Lassi - going to have to look this one up. No idea what it is.
Oxtail Soup
Pavlova
Phaal
Prickly Pear
Rabbit Stew
Shark - another one I probably won't try for environmental reasons. Unless the restaurant can prove it was a shark that was 1) all parts have been used and 2) farm raised
Snake
Spam
Squirrel - just don't tell me that's what it is when you serve it to me.
Sweetbreads
Umeboshi  - another one I am going to have to look up.
