A facebook app for foodies, stolen from facebook because I don't trust any apps there and there's no space for rambling. And where's the fun in that?

100 foods to eat before you die, compiled by someone on the internet. Foods I've tried in bold:

1. Abalone
2. Absinthe
3. Alligator - does crocodile count?
4. Baba Ghanoush
5. Bagel & Lox - Bagels yes, lox no. It doesn't help that I don't even know what it is.
6. Baklava
7. BBQ Ribs
8. Bellini

9. Birds Nest Soup - I'm not a big fan of soup, and this name isn't helping!
10. Biscuits & Gravy - I'm assuming American biscuits rather than tim-tams and gravy... either way, no.

19. Chicken Tikka Masala
20. Chile Relleno - another one I've never heard of
21. Chitlins - add to the list of unknowns...
22. Churros - omg yum. I thought I could eat churros until the cows come home, until last week when it seems the cows did come home and I was served a HUGE portion of churros at the cinema. I didn't even eat half.
23. Clam Chowder - I just can't get the hang of seafood.
24. Cognac
25. Crab Cakes - I've had crab, but I'm not a huge fan
26. Crickets - been offered them, seen other people eat them, still no
27. Currywurst
28. Dandelion Wine
29. Dulce De Leche

30. Durian - I've smelt durian. That was really, really enough.
31. Eel
32. Eggs Benedict - one of those dishes that makes me wish I liked eggs.

34. Foie Gras

40. Frogs' Legs

44. Goat
45. Goat's Milk - plenty of goat's cheese, no milk

47. Gumbo
48. Haggis
49. Head Cheese - this sounds so wrong
50. Heirloom Tomatoes - are they like red ones?
51. Honeycomb

93. Steak Tartare - I don't think I'm brave enough for this
94. Sweet Potato Fries
95. Sweetbreads - definitely not brave enough for the most poorly named food ever
96. Tom Yum - again, no idea
97. Umeboshi - you know the drill
98. Venison
99. Wasabi Peas
100. Zucchini Flowers

40 in all. I'm not sure there's much on the un-eaten list that I'd want to try - I'm not a big fan of seafood, nuts, spicy food, or raw meat, which rules out a bunch that I have come across in my travels but not eaten. There's a lot I've never even heard of though. Pretty sure that for all I like good food, I basically fail as a foodie!
