  • I've never really cared for figs, but that hasn’t stopped me from planting fig trees this year. Figs are full of mystery and intrigue. For one thing, it’s a mystery to me why anyone ever created Fig Newtons and how they can call them a cookie. But, more importantly, the spiritual symbolism of figs astounds me. It is my goal to find out what to do with figs this year. And, trust me, I won’t be trying any homemade Fig Newton recipes. Maybe a little lightly broiled fig topped with Brie cheese… DSC_4025
  • escargo? probably. I don't like seafood so no thank you. I can't think of any food or drink that I want to try, I'll try whatever passes me by.
  • Do not want: Balut. Do want: Mochi ice cream.
  • Could do without fertilised duck eggs, cockroaches, crickets (choclate coated or otherwise) most insects actually - not a fan of the idea of snails, mostly due to the descriptions I have heard from those who have tried it, garlicy rubber bands is not my idea of a good meal. Can live without frogs legs too. And I don't like muscles and oysters for the most part - cept smoked. Really want to try bear, curious about moose.
  • Haggis, snails-just not sure. Paella sounds good though, but I'm not sure which variety I'd prefer to try.
  • Casu marzu. God bless the Sardinians for their rock-solid balls, but this is one local treat I will pass on. Forever.
  • Fugu.
  • I could do without eating whale. A drink I would love to try is the coconut rum cocktail, A Day At The Beach.
  • Surstromming Rotten fish in a tin.
