1. Fresh asparagus
2. Wild mushrooms (fresh or dried)
3. Sashimi (raw fish)
4. Arugula

5. Romanesco broccoli - Don't know if I've had this or not.
6. Beefsteak tomatoes
7. Wild trout I'm very fussy about fish, and trout isn't on the list.
8. Meyer lemons
9. Eggplant
10. Tempura
11. Tillamook cheese

12. Willipaw Bay oysters

About risotto. Me too. Same reason.

Several of those things are things I'm pretty sure I've eaten in a restaurant ('cause they were part of the ingredients not the main dish), but it's possible I've just seen 'em on the menu.

I think "Malt-O-Meal" is the only thing there I haven't at least heard of. [looks back] Oh that and the "Applets and Cotlets" (what's that?)

Fresh habanero peppers, oy oy oy. (Please to forgive lack of tilde.) Did this. Glad I did. I think I don't need to do it again.

I like this list better than the other one going around! :-)

I've only had habañero out of a bottle so far. The bottle says "Mega Death Sauce" and comes with a little plastic skull keychain. But if you only use a drop or two in a whole meal, it's quite tasty.

Chive blossoms should not be used to decorate plates of chocolates, but other than that disappointment, yum edible flowers.

If you like cream of wheat, try malt-o-meal. It's similar, maltier. My spouse likes cream of wheat better, but i prefer malt-o-meal.

I thought scrapple was a Pennsylvania Dutch thing. Please put a strike through it. My best understanding is that it's what they make with the left overs from making sausage. I did try it once in that cultural exposure sort of mood, but, really....

What is Chapatis?

Sounds like scrapple is what Spam™ is based on.

Chapati - A flat, unleavened, disk-shaped bread of northern India, made of wheat flour, water, and salt.
