The Omnivore's Hundred

The Omnivore's Hundred is a list of 100 items that Andrew Wheeler, co-author of the British food blog Very Good Taste, thinks every omnivore should try at least once in their life. I found this back in the summer while reading one of my favorite food blogs, Chocolate and Zucchini. I've been meaning to post this since August but I forgot!!

He offered this list as the starting point for a game, along the following 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 on Very Good Taste, linking to your results.
