The Omnivore's Hundred

via Ilana Stephens via Itchy Bits


"Here’s a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there. Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food - but a good omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here’s what I want you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk/ linking to your results."

Wow, that is a breoad-ranging list. Surprisingly (to me, at least) I have eaten a number of items from that list, and even count some of them as favorites. I might have tp try this on my blog. Thanks for posting it.

So you won't eat PB&J?
