What have I eaten?

Eaten items are in bold. 🙂 Note that “eating” does not necessarily mean “enjoying”!

I definitely wouldn’ t say I am super adventurous with my food [non-standard cuts of meat still freak me out, for instance], but I do enjoy eating. I first did this about a year ago and have since added a few more, I’m now at 66%.

How do you do? And anyone out there want to cross off a few things on this list with me?

  1. Well together Linnie we are at 77%.

    You have got to try black pudding and andouillette! And you never had caviar with all those years as a consultant??

    Add ons:
    black pudding, black truffle, scotch bonnet pepper, goat’s milk, andouillette, caviar, roadkill (in Trinidad, haha), snail (I’m French), tasting menu at 3 star michelin, horse (common in France), harissa (not sure it was rose?)

  2. Very interesting, ladies. This brought back lots of great memories and insights, such as the fact that my primary education accounts for my having experienced numbers 1, 2, 9, 23, 55, 60, 77, 78, and 86. Numbers 41, 42, 65, and 100 can be credited to Study Abroad 🙂

    I got 69%. These are my yet-to-try items:

    4. Steak tartare
    5. Crocodile => (probably soon, given where I live)
    8. Carp
    16. Epoisses
    25. Brawn, or head cheese
