the 50 foods

last seen in patgreene's journal.

50 things to eat before you die as voted by members of http://www.bbc.co.uk. To my mind this explains the lack of easily available items like strawberries, but I'm still not sure why popular European gourmet items like truffles aren't on there.

Bold : Have eaten
Plain : Have not eaten
Italic : Would happily eat again

1. Fresh fish
2. Lobster (I don't hate it, but I don't really like it either, and there are cheaper butter delivery mechanisms.)
3. Steak
4. Thai food
5. Chinese food
6. Ice cream
7. Pizza

8. Crab (I only like it in soups, crab cakes, and California rolls)
9. Curry
10. Prawns (I do eat one occasionally, but I don't much care for them.)
11. Moreton Bay Bugs (I gather this is a form of lobster. See lobster.)
12. Clam chowder
13. Barbecues
14. Pancakes
15. Pasta

16. Mussels (Are you noticing a theme here? I don't like shellfish much.)
17. Cheesecake
18. Lamb

19. Cream tea (Unless this means Tea with cream in it)
20. Alligator (Can't remember, but think not.)
21. Oysters (Don't care for them, even if it makes me a bad lesbian.)
22. Kangaroo (Would try)
23. Chocolate
24. Sandwiches
25. Greek food
26. Burgers
27. Mexican food

28. Squid
29. American diner breakfast
30. Salmon (I only like a couple varieties of smoked salmon.)
31. Venison (I wouldn't turn it down, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat it again, either.)
32. Guinea pig (Would try, but since I mostly think of guinea pigs as pets, probably wouldn't make a habit of eating it.)
33. Shark
34. Sushi

35. Paella (Too much shellfish.)
36. Barramundi (I have no idea what this is.)
37. Reindeer (I've had an elk burger, does that count?)
38. Kebab
39. Scallops
(OK, an exception to the shellfish rule.)
40. Australian meat pie (How is this different from a Cornish pasty?)
41. Mango
42. Durian fruit (Based on what I've heard, not terribly interested.)
43. Octopus (I'm occasionally in the mood for it, but mostly don't like the texture.)
44. Ribs
45. Roast beef
46. Tapas
47. Jerk chicken/pork

48. Haggis (Not very interested.)
49. Caviar
50. Cornish pasty
