Name a food you've tried in the last year for the first time, and your reaction.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Century_eggOne of the professors brought it to our holiday party. He's one of my favorite folks in the department so when he said that was what he brought I sort of felt obligated. Thankfully, I've long had the habit of eating what the locals eat when I travel.It wasn't bad. If I was at someone's house and they offered one to me, I could easily eat it to be polite. I'd never order them at a restaurant.
to the best of my knowledge, not applicable
Had some family over last weekend for a 50th anniversary Sound of Music viewing and my mom brought Austrian schweinebraten. It's a pork roast with heavy, but delicious spices. Goes great with spätzle.
Creamed spinach - which I had never tried because of the smell - generated a "Oh. No. I don't think so" followed by a sigh and a realization that maybe if I kept forcing myself to try it I could eventually get to tolerate it.Smoked trout was a positive, in an "I will buy more of this" sense
