Foods to try before you die

November 11, 2007

Watching 1000 Places to Visit Before You Die on the travel channel, got me thinking about the various foods that a person must experience at least once in their life.

As I researched for foods that need to be sampled at least once, I came across quite a few interesting blogs and articles. Right from French to Cambodian to something totally random but fun to try! Some have rightly added not just a kind of food, but also the settings that finally determine the experience. What I’m talking about is a mystery meal that is eaten in pitch darkness with only touch, smell, sound and taste to guide you.

I am not at all the kind of person who’d go out and try just about anything; I am in fact, extremely wary about what I eat. Yet, watching Anthony Bourdain is always a learning experience. He eats whatever is presented to him without any prejudices. That’s one quality I ought to imbibe. I say this because BBC’s “50 things to eat before you die” include guinea pig, alligator and octopus amongst others!

All the above are a mix of international cuisines. Closer home, I feel that Hyderabadi biryani, butter chicken, palak paneer, gulab jamuns, rasgollas, ought to be sampled to get the feel of Indian cooking.

Add on what you’d think make some good eats!
