100 things to eat meme

Below is a list of 100 things that someone at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk thought every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life.

If you want to do this too just:

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 www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.

The VGT Omnivore’s Hundred:

1. Venison (Would like to try this but it's not readily available locally.)
2. Nettle tea Not impressed! It just tasted sort of green.

18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes Assuming elderflower counts. Yes, I know it's not a fruit.

21. Heirloom tomatoes Possibly. Heaven knows what varieties I ate as a kid in the olden days before supermarkets.
22. Fresh wild berries Yum! Blackberries, bilberries and wild rasberries.
23. Foie gras No! Never! Cruelty issues.

ETA Belatedly spotted gjetost, which I have eaten in Norway, but there it was spelled geitost, which simply means 'goat cheese'.
