The Omnivore’s Hundred

I found this in one of my favourite food blogs. It’s basically a list of one hundred foods designed by a British food blogger and the rules are simple:

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 on Very Good Taste, linking to your results.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.

  1. I think you stand out because you crossed out a lot of food items that are more common like root bear float or krispy kreme donut, and yet you`ve had durian which I hear smells like toilet =)
