I am Karan from Olympia, WA. Almost every other name used here is a pseodonym pseudonim pseudonymn alias. The rest of it is true - mostly - and all of it is my own. Don't even think about taking any of it, unless of course, you want to pay me.

    Not in my mouth

    I like to imagine that I have a very diverse palate...that I am willing to try all sorts of exotic foods, afterall, I work for a cooking school.  It’s all self-delusion because really the truth is that I am not willing to try many things, especially things that may have crawled or hopped at one point in their lives or things that are slimey or non-liquid things that have been long aged.  Oh and most organ meats.  And things that might kill me.  Nope.  Pretty much most of the stuff that those crazy guys on the Travel Channel eat for money. 

    That said, and in proof, here’s a new meme from Ali who got it from Clotilde who got it from Very Good Taste.

    The rules:

    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, linking to your results.

    5) I’m adding this one...* things I would eat again.

    (I provided links for the goodies I didn’t know)

    Now if you notice, there are many things I have tried and won’t again...and the truth is that if I’m starving, I’ll try anything...but if I have the choice of biting into a churro or a crocodile, well, the churro gets it while the beast walks free.  I also hate peas and bananas.
