      thanks! You thought of good ones! Agree on blood pud! and peach pie and chix and waffles but I'd have to use veggie chix...

      1. re: thedryer

        There are a lot of ways to do deviled eggs. What is it about them that makes you unwilling to try one?

        1. re: thedryer

          Had blood pudding in France. No one warned me that there would be chunks of bone and gristle in it. Nearly gagged.

          1. Headcheese
          2. Octopus
          3. Jellyfish

              Roast goose is delicious, and pretty easy. We did it for Christmas a few years ago, elevating it on thick rounds of apple, potato, and onion in the roasting pan to allow room for the rendered fat, and with a five-spice rub. If you have some (home-cooked or otherwise), accompany with a nice Riesling.

              I made rillettes after, which helped stretch the enjoyment and results per $ -- it was a local, pasture-raised bird and pricey.

              Cotton candy is so great for that first bite, or two. Then -- yeah, you want to rewind time to before you bought it.

            2. Never had/don't care to

              Live monkey brains
              1000 year old egg

                1. re: Ttrockwood

                  Good call on the pistachio gelato. Would you eat it with brioche?

                  1. re: BuildingMyBento

                    We had it in Sicily in brioche. Worth the flight from Canada it is so good.

                    1. re: BuildingMyBento

                      Assuming said brioche had the pistachios, absolutly! (Glass of wine in my other hand...)

                      1. re: BuildingMyBento

                        yOU DIDN'T ASK ME, BUT I'D EAT IT ANYWHERE, WITH ANYTHING. Oh sorry, caps lock. Pistachio gelato sounds like heaven on earth. I'm probably teh only person in the western world who's never had gelato.

                      2. re: Ttrockwood

                        No offal? You're missing out on an awful lot of good stuff.

                        1. re: kagemusha49

                          Hahaha.... I am (ducking to avoid blows to my head) a vegetarian- gasp! Actually for more than 25yrs now..... Just not gonna happen :)

                          1. re: Ttrockwood

                            Well then your list of "won'ts" could be infinite.

                            1. re: ferret

                              So my interpretation of the "won't" is a food that is prohibitive because of taste/texture/appearance. Not that it is a food I can not eat due to health reasons or diet (like meat for a Vegetarian/Vegan.) Am I reading this wrong?

                              1. re: globocity

                                That's how I read it. There are obviously people for whom entire categories are off the radar based on belief systems. Hard to forego what you've already written off.
