@David: ...this is a Danish cheese that smells like old socks but tastes delicious.

As compared to Danish Blue Cheese whicj smells delicious but tastes like old socks :-)  I've tried a lot of different blue cheeses, and I never found anything I liked better than good old English Stilton

@ewertz: ...warning bells start to go off with me when "British" and "food" get used in the same sentence...

That's fighting talk (are you French by any chance? :-)

@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.

@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
