I'll eat anything except bugs. And if I was surrounded by people enjoying bugs as they had for generations, I'm sure I'd eat that, too. I just gave my kids Crickettes (actually sold at the counter of a toy store! real Salt 'n' Vinegar crickets!) for Christmas, and offered $10 to anyone who would eat one, but no takers.
I made tongue in aspic once. Delicious.

B. Knight, the only time I really got nauseous watching someone eat raw oysters was on a show called I think Man vs Food. That many platters of raw oysters - *shudder.* But I can easily pack away a dozen raw, and broiled or roasted probably even more though I've never put it to the test.
I'm thinking that next xmas eve or new year's eve, I'm going to try a Feast of Seven Fishes. So I have a year to find a local place that sells baccalà (salted cod). My family didn't do that formally, we just ate lots of squid and shellfish for xmas eve.
