Indangered animals... and uni (sea urchin), that was just plain nasty!
Foie gras is very popular here all the time and around Christmas time, even worse. Whenever people order it in a restaurant, I give them a mean look. the poor ducks can't even stand because of their enlarged livers. The only liver pate I eat(love liver) is when I make it from buying chicken livers, and making a pate out of them.

That has to be tough and I am with ya on the mean look!!! I like to watch Iron Chef and they use it all the time and that is what got me curious about it. Never knew what it was so I looked it up, now I wish I had not!

Poor duckies!

I simply love "yuk" threads on food forums. Whenever the ugly question of "what to cook for dinner tonight" raises it's ugly head, here we come.

Well, not exactly, but depending on your geo-location, people like stuff that others elsewhere abhor. Where I live nowadays, tenderloin is amongst the cheapest beef cuts you can buy. Having travelled widely, I have come to appreciate the taste of a lot of "yuk", compared with most members here, I guess.

What kind of "yuk" are we talking about here?

I have just realised that I am not very keen on crocodile meat either. I have eaten it, and each time I did, I pictured this huge animal staring at me with open jaws.

not much grosses me out. not going to eat insects; don't care how chic or ethnically correct it might be. (I may try one if visiting parts of Africa or Australia, but that is an unlikely trip...still if offered by someone, might try one to say I did.) Would probably have trouble with a lamb's eye from the spit roasted critter, but to preserve the peace if offered at a tribal banquet, I would not dishonor the host. I have the greatest respect for the "code of hospitality".

No longer eat brains or raw shellfish for reasons of health. Cooked shellfish no problem. Love clams oysters mussels etc. Had eel and really like it. Had aligator and rattle snake and don't see much purpose in it except it's there so don't waste it. Good to know something can be done with it. (pretty tasteless stuff, but ok in an etoufe or jambolaya.)

Anything a hunter trapper or fisherman brings is pretty much good eats. Even had marshrabbit (muskrat) which can be made quite edible by a careful cook. Absolutely no fear of soul food...bring it on.

I don't have a big sweet tooth so I am not likely to choose a gooey desert or pie. prefer cheese.

Will not eat live goldfish. Will not drink bad beer or cheap wine. Not enough time in the world to enjoy the good stuff to fool around with the dregs.

food I wouldn`t put in my mouth would be something that`s been in some(one/thing) elses mouth for a start, like Tongue for instance.
I wouldn`t eat Brains either, I don`t like the smell or the idea that it might be thinking about your chewing style or dental work as you`re eating it.

NAAAAH!
