@ewertz: ...at that point it's just a matter of where your gag-reflex kicks in w.r.t. sweetness...

I consider myself fortunate that I don't have a "sweet tooth" -- which means I tend to not be lured by sweets and puddings -- plus I don't drink and sort of soda (Coke, DR Pepper, etc.)

@David: Boerewors (literally "farmer's sausage"  is like sausages but again spicier, and recipies for good boerewors spice are closely guarded secrets.

OMG! Now I'm starving! I want some!!!

@betajet: If you're half-Norwegian and half-Swedish, Ole is Danish.

Well, I'm glad that's cleared up :-)

In my childhood, I was really good friend with vegetables. Spinach? Yumm! It did help, that my grandmother was an excellent cook. However, there was one dish, combining elements that individually I did like but together, they were the devil and it almost ruined my grandmother's culinary credibility in my eyes. I mean, what sick and twisted mind would come up with the recipe for lettuce soup??! And, by the way, it does look like sick, as well.

I won't perpetuate this monstrosity by repeating the recipe here but some of the ingredients were lettuce (cooked!!), milk and vinegar. Together.

Lettuce soup is right up there with other "interesting" foods, such as...

Surströmming: fermented (well, okay, rotting) herring.

...and my personal favourite...

Kiviak: Err... It's easier to refer to wikipedia, for explanation - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiviak

Stinky foods:

-- Stinky to-fu, beloved by quite a few of my Chinese friends.  There even used to be a stinky tofu restaurant in the famed Barber Lane plaza (99 Ranch Milpitas).

-- Stinky cheese, such as blue cheese, Limburger, and more.  I didn't like these when young, but now I do. 

-- Durian: smells like hell, tastes like heaven.  Not my favorite, but it does taste (kind of custard-y) much better than it smells.

Other food notes:

--Goat and sheep cheese (such as Manchego), yumm!  Of course, for names, it's hard to beat Tetilla ("tit") cheese from Galicia in Spain -- it's a mild cheese that looks like its namesake.

--One of the more interesting appetizers I've had is prosciutto ham with melon (at a Italian restaurant in Bangkok); it actually tasted pretty good.

--A lot of Mexican restaurants around here have fried ice cream as a desert, but I've never tried it.

--And of course, every culture has its "odd" foods, like pig's ears (Chinese, can be pretty good - crunchy and spicy), blood sausages, head cheese, and scrapple (a Philly breakfast sausage made from leftover pig parts, often eaten with sweet syrup).


--Sausages really do come in a wide variety of shapes & sizes.  OK, in the US, they pretty much all look the same (unlike Europe; my German cookbook shows an incredible array of shapes -- hmmm, haven't been to the local German deli in too long, should see what they have), but at least around here I can get some pretty hot sausages.

@Ewertz...stinky cheese.....I once visited a friend of mine in Johannesburg and bought some Esrom cheese.  This is a Danish cheese that smells like old socks but tastes delicious.  I had a bit and kept it in his fridge...or should I say their fridge - it was a share house with about 5 occupants.   Alas - I forgot to take it with me when I left.  Over the succeeding weeks it stank more and more,, but no one did anything about it because they all thought it was someone else's.  When it finally got too much and someone asked around, and found out no-one owned up to owning it, they chucked it out.    When I next visited, I innocently asked "Did someone enjoy my cheese that I forgot to take?"    Five pairs of eyes turned on me.  "IT WAS YOURS!!!"  Things were a little frosty but fortunately they all had a sense of humor....
