Grandson of Scottish Louisiana bayou folk, I gorontee, with several St. Andrews feasts, a couple North Dakota branding weekends, and Army brat in German: I can check off haggis and fried Semintal testacles, mett, beef tartar and morels.

Most recent new food: moved to a new house with a loquat tree, first harvest, yum, but a bitch to peel.

Ah, I've got it. We just planted a couple of paw paw trees. I would like to taste paw paws.
Also, Pliny the Elder.

Did you like the Mett?

Guess I've been lucky, I've had both mettwurst and morels, but not at the same time. Both are delicious. The mettwurst is cured and has a pleasant onion and slight smoke flavor and is typically eaten on light rye bread. The morels were pan fried in butter, salt, and pepper while camping in Oregon as a kid. I've also had them in Germany in a cream sauce with rabbit. The mushrooms were good but I didn't care for the rabbit. I've never had beluga caviar or real truffles…one day maybe…one day.

You lucky... I would have taken the choice of mettwurst over straight up Mett any day

So I just discovered that buluga sturgeon are actually pretty endangered so I should probably change my answer to just cavier. The American black cavier sounds interesting.

I like caviar. I also like tobiko, flying fish roe, as well as its common substitute at sushi joints, smelt roe. Black caviar is definitely stronger in flavor. If you have never had fish eggs of any sort, Id suggest heading to a sushi restaurant and getting a piece of tobiko sushi.

You know, I didn't think that I'm really that adventurous but I really can't think of anything common that I haven't tried.

There was a thing on facebook a while back about "how many of these 100 foods have you had?" or something like that and I had tried all but a few of them.

Things like morels are common here (morel risotto is a specialty of a good friend's) but it's hard to get other rare foods here. We're landlocked, and mostly white Scandinavians so you don't see sushi, other Asian foods, fresh seafood or oysters, etc, around here.

Of course, it's easy to get lutefisk, if I was so inclined.

Since I've traveled alot in my life, I've had a chance to try most things I've heard of.

Not a fan of Haggis or menudo, but I will eat both dishes if that is what my host has made.

Yoop, maybe I'm erroneously attributing things to the UP I have seen elsewhere in Michigan, but how do you feel about the polish sausage culture in the polish and german neighborhoods? Some of the best (and most exotic) sausages I have had were in Roger City.

I've always wanted to try Kobe beef.

I'm curious about Durian. Kobe beef is good, but expensive, and I'm not sure it's worth the expense. But, i think i can make most steaks taste good.
