There's not a lot I don't eat...

I had a run through that list of foods that's going around, and there's very little on it that I haven't eaten (and only one thing I wouldn't eat at all - if smoking counts as eating!).

1. Venison - in many different forms

4. Steak tartare
5. Crocodile - and alligator too...
6. Black pudding - and white pudding
7. Cheese fondue - in Gruyere
8. Carp - again in Switzerland
9. Borscht
10. Baba ghanoush
11. Calamari

15. Hot dog from a street cart - George St, St John's after a night on the town
16. Epoisses

32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl - San Francisco ahoy!
33. Salted lassi - I prefer mango
