The Omnivore’s Hundred

I saw it at Katie’s, and then at Sylvie’s, and thought ‘how fun’! This is Andrew’s Omnivore’s Hundred, a list of 100 things he thinks every omnivore should try!

If you want to do it, here’s what 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.

  3. Interesting list. There’s not much I won’t eat but there’s no way I could eat chitterlings!

  5. Hare. Prepared in a similar way as this venison dish. I’d like to see your list, too!😀

    Also, I agree with Sylvie, no dogs, or rats for me definitely. Brrrrr…. I may be persuaded to try squirrel. Monkey? Not sure….

  6. I’ve had 46! Haha, I love that, not only did someone compile this list, but it’s making the rounds!

    I listed Roadkill as something I’ve had, but in truth there was a dish at a restaurant in town that was called roadkill. It was beef tips. Very tasty beef tips.
