Worst, strangest food you have had.

This is inspired by a 'meal' I had twenty odd years ago.

Made by the wife. It was Herring Baguettes.

Herring, cucumber, on a Baguette, there were other components to the meal but these sarnies were fucking awful.

We still laugh

Can't say I've ever had anything truly awful, I've had things I probably wouldn't have again in a hurry but nothing I'd mark as horrible.

When we were young me and our kid used to dare each other to each weird concoctions of foodstuffs from the cupboard. The worst was a cream cracker topped with polo mints and peas smothered in butter, mustard powder, soy sauce and Tabasco.

Those bitter red lettuce type leaves they put in salads and kid on that it's proper food.

I used to go out with an Aussie girl, and it was her tradition to cook 'hash magandi' every Friday. It's a traditional Australian truckers dish which involves just throwing everything left in the fridge into a pan and heating it up.

You got used to it after a while

Yep, as an adult - and enjoyed them.

But as a child my vomit-reflex was automatically triggered by slices of cold spam.


Yes, as a kid luncheon meat or tomatoes would have me gipping, and overdone crispy fried eggs. Cellery, thats another.

Eat most anything now.

just been watching Wartime Kitchen on 'Yesterday' and this woman boiled up a sheep's head, then dismembered it and put all the bits in a bowl. Then poured in stock made out of boiled bones and left it to set in the larder.

You ate it cold.

Next week - oxtail soup

Anyone eat tripe these days? used to be popular round here up to about ten - twelve years ago now it seems impossible to get other than seeing the butcher and asking for the special stuff whilst looking around.

If not what do they do with all the tripe these days ?

I wouldn't be surprised if much of it goes for export - much like a lot of our shellfish (especially cockles and mussels), eels (though there may currently be a moratorium on this as their numbers have inexplicably plummeted by some 90% in recent years) and New Forest ponies (the French love 'em).

I ate a grilled scorpion in Thailand a couple of years ago. It wasn't bad, in the same ballpark as crab or other seafood.

I ordered something in Budapest once that was mostly green and tasted like cat food.

An out-of-date own brand cat food at that.

Nothing hugely exotic, although I have munched on crocodile, ostrich and snake.
