The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

McDonalds. I ate such a lot of it when I was in Manhattan in 1993 as #1 it was cheap ,#2 it was December and freezing so any excuse to be inside #3 it was a novelty as we didn't have McDonalds in South Africa yet. I have not ever had McDonalds again. . .

I had Wild Boar in a restaurant in Germany that specializes in game. It was wonderful, and yes, I would eat it again.

A unusual crab dish

The unusual dish I had was in one of San Antonio restaurant. It was called 'the drunken crab'. It was amazing with the garnishing of parsley and whipped cream. I will definitely have it again...

octopus and squid cooked in ink is quite common in Spain...I like it...also blood sausage, though we have many different kinds, some I like some I cannot eat.

The most strange thing I have eaten is Whale. Looks like meat, has the consistency of meat...but it has a slight fishy taste. Weird. I also tried cured seal meat...not my favourite food.

Recently I had real (not mock!) turtle soup at a Chinese restaurant in Manila. I was a little bothered but everyone at the table insisted I had it. I psyched myself up by telling myself that turtle can't be any worse than crab which I adore. I also conjured up scenes from the movie Babette's Feast to help me along.

Well, the turtle soup turned out to be extremely tasty. Some parts of the flesh tasted like (what else?) very tender chicken, and some parts that were supposed to be attached to the shell had slimy membranes that were not unpleasant to eat at all. I certainly won't mind having turtle soup again :-)
