Glenda'sVGT Omnivore’s Hundred:

4. Steak tartare
6. Black pudding
7. Cheese fondue
10. Baba ghanoush
13. PB&J sandwich
14. Aloo gobi
15. Hot dog from a street cart - yay for Street Meat (or Road Dogs, as Mike calls them)! in undergrad, Tiffany and I had street meat from a campus vendor as a marker of the official annual 'Pre-Summer Day!'
17. Black truffle
18. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes - my grandfather used to make all kinds of wine.. I seem to remember trying a gooseberry one when I was about 16 :) Raspberry wine is really nice too.
19. Steamed pork buns - fresh from a chinatown bakery in Calgary - yummy!
20. Pistachio ice cream
21. Heirloom tomatoes - just last weekend at the cottage, no less!
22. Fresh wild berries
23. Foie gras
24. Rice and beans - together? no.
25. Brawn, or head cheese - I'm sorry, but nothing should have that much gelatin in it except jello!
26. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper - I don't like really hot peppers
27. Dulce de leche
28. Oysters - fun fact: my uncle had (maybe still has?) an oyster farm of the coast of BC, and he'd often leave burlap sacks full of fresh oysters on our doorstep when he came to town... but I won't eat them raw, sorry.
30. Bagna cauda
31. Wasabi peas - interesting, but I won't be eating them again.
32. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl - not in the sourdough bowl, I'm afraid, but what a great idea that is! :)
33. Salted lassi
35. Root beer float - and coke floats, and cream soda ones, but root beer floats really are the best kind!
36. Cognac with a fat cigar - I don't smoke... can I get partial points?
37. Clotted cream tea

39. Gumbo - Shrimp or chicken?
41. Curried goat
42. Whole insects
44. Goat’s milk - a great alternative when you're lactose intolerant!

46. Fugu - didn't this feature in a Simpsons episode?
47. Chicken tikka masala
48. Eel - makes great sushi!
49. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut - I get chest pains just looking at them - I much prefer Tim Horton's!
50. Sea urchin - pretty sure I've had it in sushi
51. Prickly pear
55. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal - I could never eat that much grease (I mean, food) in one sitting!
56. Spaetzle - not yet, but Claudia keeps promising to make it for me
57. Dirty gin martini - vodka ones are better
58. Beer above 8% ABV - it was called Delirium Tremens (9%), and I only had a sip of it. They sell it at the pub across the road
60. Carob chips
63. Kaolin - isn't this a mineral used as a pesticide? How would you know if its on the stuff you eat?
66. Frogs’ legs - froggies are too cute to lose their legs just for my culinary enjoyment!

69. Fried plantain
70. Chitterlings, or andouillette
72. Caviar and blini
73. Louche absinthe - this has only been legal in Ontario for about 2 years now, that's my excuse :)
74. Gjetost, or brunost
77. Hostess Fruit Pie - this isn't food, its a chemical!
78. Snail - sounds so much better as 'escargot', don't you think?
79. Lapsang souchong
80. Bellini - Milestone's, a popular Vancouver restaurant, used to have Bellini Tuesdays, of which I partook many times!

85. Kobe beef
90. Criollo chocolate
92. Soft shell crab
93. Rose harissa
95. Mole poblano
96. Bagel and lox - soooo goood! (but did you know that from a carb point of view, one bagel = FOUR pieces of bread?!)

99. Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee - hmmm... I really need to try this!
