What's your Omnivore 100 score?

I was visiting Arlene of The Food of Love when I came across her Omnivore 100 list. She found the idea on another blog and decided to give it a go. So will I. Copy and paste the list onto your blog, go through the list and bold all the items you've eaten. Use red to denote the items you would never consider eating. Use blue to denote the items you would like to try. Italicize those items that you don't recognize (I did cheat and googled the ones I don't know because sometimes I know them by dish but not by name). After you are finished, count how many are bold. That is your omnivore score.

I'm afraid I wouldn't have many bold ones either. LOL :)

Very interesting! I keep hearing about this list when folks twitter about theirs but this is the first time I've seen one.

Who eats roadkill? Is that really an option?

So funny we are presently preparing Goulash for tonight's beer and sausages tasting!
Oh and Foie Gras (I think it's said like this even in English) but it is liver, normally of a duck. It sounds disgusting, but it really isn't. It's not chewey like you'd expect, it's prepared in certain way that it's delicious with apple sauce.. You have to try it one day, it's also very fancy and expensive.
