    1. Well, there are some things on there that I won’t 100% rule out, but are well, well, WELL down the list to “things I’ll eat if the choice is that or starving to death”, such as horse, and a lot of things I simply just haven’t encountered yet. I’m a) not particularly shy culinarily, b) not bound by any religous constraints on diet (not that there’s anything wrong with that for those who follow their faith’s rules), and c) possess no known food allergies. That pretty much leaves the field wild open. There are things on that list I don’t like, mind you, and will not seek out, but I’ve eaten them at some point or another. I need to go back and bold Gumbo, ’cause that’s another favorite and I don’t know how it’s not bolded. 🙂
