What is the Omnivore’s 100?

The Omnivore’s 100 is a list of 100 foods you should eat before you die.  It was created by Andrew of Very Good Taste back in 2008.  The list is incredibly diverse, containing everything from s’mores and Hostess Fruit Pies to haggis and horse (see the full list here).

Although the list is intended to be completed over the course of a lifetime, I have decided to complete it within one year.  Some foods I’ll cook myself, some I’ll order at a restaurant, and some I might have to peel off the highway (yep, roadkill is on the list).

Yes, it will be expensive.  Yes, it will probably make me gain 20 pounds.  Yes, I’ll probably lose my lunch at least once.  But I’m determined to accomplish this goal and I’m going to take you with me on my journey!

Watch as I scarf sweetbreads, feast on foie gras, and guzzle down goat’s milk.  It’s gonna be a wild ride…

    […] Curried Goat, author ChildofMidnight via Wikimedia CommonsI stumbled upon a sort of entertaining blog tracking the progress of one woman in her venture to eat the top 100 cannot miss foods. I don’t necessarily agree with the list– why crocodile? and who on earth really thinks you need to eat Vodka jello to be culinarily complete? On the other hand, you should try eel (unagi, yummm), and spaetzle is a delightfully gluten-containing fresh noodle that is more uber-comfort food. You can read more about her opinions and adventures in new foods here. […]
