Omnivore ‘Index’ Rating


I’m a always up for a bit of Index (or certain people will tell you) … Here are my results from the ‘Omnivore’s Hundred‘, a nice idea from Andrew at Very Good Taste. I’ve had just a piddling 32 on this list of foods that “every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life”. Maybe I’m not being adventurous enough! Having said that, there are certainly a few foods I’d put in the list, sushi, dried shark, biltong…

Anyway… have a go…

How it works…
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results

  1. I think you have had a clotted cream tea! And Kaolin is clay – I’m sure you are supposed to walk on it or at a stretch put it on your face, but not eat it?!

  2. You’re probably right Sis, surely I must have had clotted cream tea cakes with tea!

    Eating clay does seems strange. This Wiki suggests previous debate on the practice.

    Interestingly “Geophagy is most often seen in rural or preindustrial societies among pregnant women and children.”

  3. Almost makes me want to start a blog simply to show what i’ve eaten. I’m surprised at some of them you haven’t got round to trying yet. Even my parents have had goat…

  4. I have no blog so I’m using yours. Except you can’t bold it. Bugger
