I noticed several of you mentioned rabbit and quail. I know bunnies are cute, but considering their reproduction rate, I think mother nature surely intended them as food. They sure are good eating, as is squirrel.
Quail is exquisite when cooked properly, but unfortunately, we don't have many wild quail left around here, although there are farm-raised ones available...for a price.

I have always had a feeling that caviar is one of those things that no one really likes, but they say they do so they sound chic! I love the scene in the movie Big, when Tom Hanks tries the caviar. I have never tried it, but that is the kind of reaction I picture most people really wanting to have!

barbara, i truely like caviar. granted, it can be very strong flavor, fishy and salty, but sometimes, that's what i crave. it's like anchovies. either you love them or hate them.

...I'd eat that

Now, do you mean things that aren't traditionally considered to be food (in American culture)? Because really, I'd just as soon not eat live crickets. Or cats or dogs or hamsters, for that matter. But someone, somewhere, probably thinks those things are as common as hamburgers are to us (OK, maybe not the hamsters).

As far as "traditional" foods go: I never, ever liked tripe. Yeck! My Mom still makes it sometimes, and offers me leftovers when I visit (I always respectfully decline the offer). It doesn't bother me that it's a (part of a) cow's stomach, per se. I just really dislike the texture of it. But I'll still eat liver, and veal kidneys and stuff like that (assuming they're prepared right).

I have not yet got around to trying Rocky Mountain Oysters, either, but if I'm ever in a place where they're popular, I'll certainly give them a go!

Welcome, 240brickman! After reading your post and your admirable willingness to try different cuisines, you do know what Rocky Mountain Oysters are, right?
