The Omnivore's 100

From Very Good Taste via redscharlach: a list of 100 foods every omnivore should try. I'm not one by any means, but it's an interesting list. I scored 47 which isn't too bad for someone with various food bans, some of which I've flouted (eg. a slice of crocodile pizza once). I wouldn't mind betting altariel and mraltariel score close to 100.

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.

I miss gjetost. You can't get it here any more, but OTOH the local supermarket sells spaetzle which I had two nights ago.

Those of you in Canada: one thing I'd like to try is poutine. It's got to be good if it's that popular, and I need comfort food right now. I can't get cheese curds, so what's a good cheese to use on it? Bocconcini? Also, do French Canadians ever call it Vladimir Poutine like my family calls nasi goreng Nazi Goering? (I should have included that one in my family slang post.)
