Foods to try before you die 
I picked this up over at Molly's place and thought oooh fascinating. Maybe it's 'cause I'm just off a really good lunch and food is big on my mind right now....

About 55% of 'em down though, I'm pretty happy with that! Living in NY is good for that kind of thing, I guess. Sadly I'm at a bit of a disadvantage since plowing down any of the shellfish on there would probably put me in the hospital. I guess that means I just have to try to make up for it with the rest of the stuff!

So how about you?


The Omnivore's Hundred is a list of foods the gastronomic Andrew Wheeler thinks everyone should try at least once in their lives.

1. Venison
2. Nettle tea
3. Huevos rancheros
4. Steak tartare
5. Crocodile
6. Black pudding (if you try just one "scary" thing on this list, I advise you to try black pudding. Don't let that whole "it's blood" thing freak you out).
