    I'm fairly open minded and will try just about any type of food once. Having said that, there are certain foods I refuse to try. Topping that list would be deep fried spiders! A friend and co-worker went through Eastern Asia last fall and had spiders for a snack! :eek: [face_sick]

    I've seen a few interesting things like that on my travels in Thailand. Seen, not eaten, although anything deep fried with chilli and garlic all ends up tasting pretty much the same ;)

    I had some nice Fish and Chip's in Ottawa once. The company was pretty good as well ;)

    Peking Duck in Beijing was yummy. The Cholco de pastel in Santiago is really good. And waaaay too much excellent Thai food.

    You are a charmer! :) I think the most unusual things I've tried would be poi in Hawaii, frogs' legs here, emu meat also here and I guess everything else would be considered normal.

    Erm, no. The only Emu we have here are found in the frozen produce section of the grocer's.

    [face_laugh] ... that's pretty much the same here in Adelaide. But drive about 320kms north of here and you'll see them alive ... or as roadkill. We'll have to take you while you're here, Goddess!

    So what does emu taste like?? Chicken?? :p

    Reminds me of a friend who had kangaroo meat

    Personally, I rather not be that adventurous ;)

    I don't mind trying new things. You never know what you're missing unless you try it! There could be some very pleasent surprises! :)

    Kangaroo meat is actually very nice! It's quite unique in that apparently it contains no cholesterol! So is healthy.

    Hi!

    Well...I know what you mean...I don't know about emu meat, but ostrish and caribou and quite nice in a fondue...and yes, in Montreal, you'll find them in the same state as the emu, lol, thought we have lots of raccoons. Maybe it's great too? :D

    Amber: You really don't need to worry about caliroes that much! I say enjoy what you eat and don't worry about what it does to you. As soon as you concentrate on how much you eat, the food ceases to be enjoyable anymore! :)

    Sonya: It's so nice to see you here again! It's been a while. :) Hmmm, Racoon meat... I would have never thought of trying it but I guess it's an option as well!

    Food has always been my enemy, I eat when I am depressed. When I lived up north in England I ended up feeling very alone so got depressed and ate. I put on 5 stones and up 4/5 clothes sizes which ended up being a horrid cycle as I end up being depressed about my weight.

    I seemed to have lost weight though as clothes from last year are now baggy.

    At least I am being good this summer though, I am trying to keep active as if I sit at home by the computer I eat more so trying to do housework, looking after the rabbits, exercise......not going to Timmy's and getting doughnuts or muffins :p

    Helps Mike hurt himself this weekend so been looking after him.....sure he did it on purpose o_O

    Actually on the topic of food, has anyone had Haggis before? ;)

    I had Haggis described to me ... once they get to the part about sheep's stomach I lose interest [face_laugh]

    D_M no eating Amber's rabbits! She wouldn't care for you much if you turned her pets into rabbit stew! ;)

    Amber, I've never tried Haggis before but have seen it several times as a child. I think I'd be more apt to try it now then when I was little. As you get older you tend to get more adventuresome ;)

    lol I don't know. I had black pudding as a child, I stopped eating it once I found out what it was made of :p

    And that it was also used in 'Ecky-Thump'

    I'm not necessarily going to eat your rabbits Amber. I was speaking in general terms.

    Hmmm, I'm not quite clear on what "Ecky-Thump" is supposed to be... :confused: The link you posted gives us the Wikipedia listing for "The Goodies"


    I'm fairly certain that Amber will be relieved to hear you weren't intending to turn her pets into stew! I'm not sure I'd be able to eat rabbit after spending so much time with hers. They really are cute animals!

    ..... the episode "Kung Fu Kapers" in which Tim Brooke-Taylor, dressed as a kilted Scotsman, used a set of bagpipes to defend himself from a psychopathic black pudding (from the Lancastrian martial art "Ecky-Thump") in a demonstration of the Scottish martial art of "Hoots-Toot-ochaye." ..

    I thought it was pretty obvious [face_laugh]

    Did the Goodies not make it to Canada?

    *Listens and smiles and nods as I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about!*

    Erm, if they made it to Canada, I never heard of them. It is possible that they did and I just never saw the show....
