Heaven knows I haven’t actually blogged anything for real on here in forever… and today is no exception. I got this little meme off of Amanda‘s blog and it intrigued me…

The Omnivore’s Hundred

Here’s
a chance for a little interactivity for all the bloggers out there.
Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should
have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food,
strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food – but a good
omnivore should really try it all. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind
you; neither have I, though I’ll be sure to work on it. Don’t worry if
you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here’s what I want you to do:

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.
