Common Foods People Have Never Eaten Before

Let's Dish: What Foods Have You Never Eaten Before?

As an adventurous eater, it's shocking to me what people will and won't eat. Morgan, for instance, isn't a vegetarian, but never ate peanut butter and jelly or turkey until she was in college. Even Katie was new to something — crawfish — until she tried it under the capable hands of John Besh this Summer. I've tried most things I can think of, but I've never eaten kohlrabi or kidneys. What have you never sampled until recently — and what's still on your to-try list?

I guess it isn't exactly common, but I have become fixated on trying sea urchin.

Haha nah, no one in Germany makes pumkin pie. They do use pumpkin, but mostly for soups, I think. And I'll remember that about the okra. (What ISN'T better when it's fried, though? haha)

I've never had okra. I grew up in Germany and I don't think you can get it there unless you go to a specialty store. I've heard people say it's mostly slimy, so I'm not sure i need to try it haha. I've had pretty much everything you can eat on a cow or pig (even tongues and all), because my great uncle had a farm and at my grandparents' there were always all kinds of meat. A new food I tried recently was pumpkin pie. It was pretty good. Something I really want to try is foie gras, just to see what it's like. I don't expect to enjoy it :p
