At the Risk of Sounding Like a Complete Fat Ass...

Thursday, September 18, 2008

very good taste was looking for people's feedback about food.

copy the below list into your blog.

- bold all the items you’ve eaten. (i also put a * by the number because the bold was difficult to see.)
- cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
- optional: post a comment at vgt's omnivore's hundred linking to your post.
*1. Venison (i make a bangin' smoked cinnamon venison loin.)
2. Nettle tea (i had to wiki this, and i must say it doesn't seem that interesting. tea is tea.)
*3. Huevos rancheros (i used to order the "red light, green light huevos" at a little joint in providence. $2.50 for a plate of yumminess, the mexicans got it right on this one.)
*4. Steak tartare (my favorite an mont blanc in nyc, but hold the raw egg on mine please. thanks.)
*5. Crocodile (it tastes like gamey chicken.)
*6. Black pudding (aka blood sausage or boudin noir. my dad being hungarian, i've tasted just about every combination of meat biproduct that you could ever think of shoving into an intestine. good boudin noir is delicious.)
*7. Cheese fondue
*8. Carp (gefilte fish is made of carp. fish balls in a jar a fish water? no thanks, never again.)
*9. Borscht (hungarians=polocks, so yes.)
10. Baba ghanoush (i'd try it, but i'm not a fan of eggplant.)
*11. Calamari
*12. Pho (the most fantastic bowl of pho i've ever had was at a noodle house in asheville, nc.)
*13. PB&J sandwich (do they still make goober grape? the pb&j all in one jar? that shit was good.)
14. Aloo gobi (curried cauliflower sounds good to me!)
*15. Hot dog from a street cart ('thumb dogs' are delicious as long as you don't think about the water they were cooked in.)
16. Epoisses (unpasteurized cheese typically tastes and smells like the back end of an elephant's scrotum, but i would try it anyway.)
*17. Black truffle (truffles are dreamy, and dare i say that they make me moist?)
*18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
*19. Steamed pork buns (dim sum would just be dim without them.)
*20. Pistachio ice cream
*21. Heirloom tomatoes (yummo!)
*22. Fresh wild berries
*23. Foie gras
(peta people are idiots. fois gras is sent from god.)
*24. Rice and beans
*25. Brawn, or head cheese
(head cheese is the bologna of hungarian lunchboxes.)
26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper (i'm not an idiot.)
27. Dulce de leche (does the haagen dazs flavor count?)
*28. Oysters (as long as they're not cooked, i'm not a fan of cooked oysters.)
*29. Baklava (nobody makes it like the jefferson diner.)
*30. Bagna cauda (how do you say 'yummo' in italian?)
*31. Wasabi peas
*32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl
(new england is so much better than manhattan.)
33. Salted lassi (i would totally puke.)
*34. Sauerkraut
*35. Root beer float

*36. Cognac with a fat cigar (i need a fat cigar to cover up the flavor of cognac, it burns.)
37. Clotted cream tea (i lied, tea is not tea. clotted cream? {insert puke noise here.} and while we're at it, let's add the word clotted to the list with moist & trudle.)
*38. Vodka jelly/Jell-O (jell-o shots? hell yeah!)
*39. Gumbo
*40. Oxtail
*41. Curried goat

*42. Whole insects (chocolate covered grasshoppers. weird.)
43. Phaal (i had to look this one up. i'm going to have to say no, because the pain of a burning sphincter is not appetizing to me.)
44. Goat’s milk
45. Malt whisky from a bottle worth £60/$120 or more (i'm not a huge fan of brown booze.)
46. Fugu (someday.)
*47. Chicken tikka masala (how about 'yummo' in urdu?)
*48. Eel (for some reason, i keep trying eel anytime i have the chance, but i have never once actually enjoyed it.)
*49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut
*50. Sea urchin (the roe is much better than the meat.)
*51. Prickly pear
52. Umeboshi (they look like dried goat balls.)
53. Abalone (i want to try it, but i'm pretty sure i'd hate it because of the slimy texture.)
54. Paneer (i'd give it a whirl.)
*55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal
*56. Spaetzle
(hungarian=german too.)
57. Dirty gin martini (vodka, vodka, vodka. screw james bond.)
*58. Beer above 8% ABV (i adore double ipa's.)
59. Poutine (it figures that it's french. freedom fries and cheese curds? how original.)
*60. Carob chips (fake chocolate is not divine.)
*61. S’mores
*62. Sweetbreads

63. Kaolin (i don't know what that is, and according to wiki it's clay. playdoh may be delicious when your little but clay from the ground... not so much.)
64. Currywurst (ok, so i lied about having eating every type of meat biproduct in an intestine.)
*65. Durian (never again.)
*66. Frogs’ legs
*67. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake

68. Haggis (i'd love to eat fergus henderson's haggis. someday...)
*69. Fried plantain
*70. Chitterlings, or andouillette
(who doesn't love chitterlings? it's the only time that you can actually hear yourself getting fatter.)
*71. Gazpacho
*72. Caviar and blini

73. Louche absinthe (i would love to see the green fairy.)
74. Gjetost, or brunost (brown cheese makes me a bit skeptical.)
75. Roadkill (sometimes i eat roadkill while i watch deliverance.)
76. Baijiu (i actually have a bottle of vietnamese baijiu, but i've never opened it.)
*77. Hostess Fruit Pie
*78. Snails

79. Lapsang souchong (again, teas is tea.)
*80. Bellini
81. Tom yum (i bet this shit is delicious.)
*82. Eggs Benedict (hollandaise scares me if i didn't make it myself.)
83. Pocky (chocolate breadsticks? bleh.)
84. Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant (marco-pierre white's tasting menu would be divine.)
*85. Kobe beef
*86. Hare
*87. Goulash
(hunagrian chicken soup. what's with all the hungarian stuff on here?)
*88. Flowers (candied pansies.)
89. Horse (i'm sure i've eaten horse from the chinese buffet without knowing it, but i never will on purpose.)
90. Criollo chocolate (if you've eaten it, let me know if it's worth the $$$.)
*91. Spam
*92. Soft shell crab

93. Rose harissa (bleh.)
*94. Catfish (funny story, when me and my sister's were little, my mom made catfish stew and told us it was shark fin stew in hopes that we would eat it. it's the only time in my life that my mom wouldn't let us leave the table until we finished our gruel. i stick bust her about that til this day.)
*95. Mole poblano
*96. Bagel and lox
(i'm a jew at heart.)
*97. Lobster Thermidor (probably the most boring lobster dish ever.)
*98. Polenta
*99. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee
(how do you say yummo in jamaican?)
100. Snake (sure, let me just order my snake with a side of mashed clown and broiled doll freckles. no thanks.)

what about you? what have you eaten and what would you never touch in a million years? most of this stuff is probably on wiki if you're not sure what it is.

[thanks holly!]

goober grape! I haven't thought about that in years. That was the sh*t!

VERY interesting list but I can't say I'm surprised since you're a foodie connesseur. So questions (for another blog post?):

- what was your first experience of black pudding like & how old were you?

- you've *tasted* borscht, but do you like it?

- what is bagna cauda?

- not a question, but laughed out loud at your adding "clotted" to moist & trundle as taboo words!

- did you eat chocolate grasshoppers on purpose? What was the occasion?

- wtf is phaal and is it foul?

- tell us about sweetbreads! When did you eat them?

- ok so krispy kreme was on the list but what is your favorite donut brand/flavor?

- have you ever eaten someone else's hollandaise and gotten ill??
