The Omnivore's Hundred...

Have you tried..??
I thought this was fun and interesting. Below is a list of 100 things/foods from http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk/ that a "good omnivore" should try at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and some pretty bad food. This is how it works:

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 or you can post your result on my comments!
