How adventurous are you in eating?

    Do you stick to accustomed food or try something exotic/outragious?

      I stick to accustomed unless starvation dictates otherwise.

    It depends on what you mean by "exotic/outrageous". I have traveled to many different counties and always like to try the local cuisine. However, if you are referring to "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" type exotic, then I'm out.

    i rarely try anything 'exotic". i'm kind of squeamish that way...

    I may try anything as long as I now what it is beforehand, then I can decide to try or not...

    I will try something new and sometimes I have had to get past the psychological part of it. For ex: Alligator it took me so long to eat a piece of Alligator even though it tasted like chicken, all I could think of was what it looked like and what it could do. lololo It was traumatizing!

    I've tried many exotic dishes, but will  not eat insects.  Rather eat cow tongue than that!

    As a farmer, I can tell you that nothing can be much worse than eating chicken, especially those raised in the large production facilities.  A chicken will eat anything and so will a pig.  Alligator is better tasting than chicken if prepared properly.  I would guess that few people have ever tasted free range chickens or their eggs. 

    I've eaten many types of wild game and some are wonderful.  Others, not too good.  I suppose I understand the leery attitude of some though.

    I'll try just about anything, depending on what it looks like, but don't tell me what it is first.  Let me taste it, then tell me it's grasshoppers!  I can always puke it back up later smile

    I have eaten some really wild and great foods, Pork Brains and eggs. Fried Frog legs, Alligator, Snake and chitterlings. I love all seafood and have eaten a lot of it raw while on shrimp boats.
    I have tried and liked most all game animals in the U.S. large and small. Only like Opossum if stewed right with sweet potatoes. Lots more other things I have tried.

    i just stick to normal food - not adventurous in this case.

    I will try almost anything once.  Exclude the bizarre foods though, and no insects.

    I don't have a shred of "adventurous".  I eat like a picky six-year-old - just the basics, but only if they're among the few foods I like; and on top of that, I border on being a vegetarian.  (I'll eat tuna salad or eggs.)  The good side of it is that I have great compassion for little kids who don't like food.  lol )  There's whole categories of food I won't eat, sometimes just based on color.   lol

    My childhood started out adventurous as my Mother could only cook two things. Take it or leave it. hmm
