A campfire in Nova Scotia sounds lovely and I've never been. Yes you called it, a little uppity. They can't help themselves. ☺️

Well I don't know why my last post only posted just now and not last night, but I think I will tell them what it is when asked.

Some people are very weird about food (or is that me? 😏) I guess I'd rather have someone decline to try it than find out later and think they were ill from it.

I suspect the opposite is probably the case. I know quite a few "uppity" people, although I would never call them that because most of them are very nice. But they are the ones who usually refer to themselves as "foodies" and are very adventurous eaters, for the most part. I don't think they would have any problem with it.

On the other end of the spectrum there are people like my brother. He and his wife are very blue collar, salt-of-the-earth, working class folks. They're very nice people. But would either of them ever try beef tongue? I highly doubt it. I've seen both of them snub "unusual" foods on many occasions. But I do think he would be classy about it, simply saying "no thank you" when offered, without making a fuss.

I told, they ate it all.

Served on homemade baguette with choices of pesto, chili tomato sauce, fig jam. I decided horseradish and mustard over powered too much.

Plus someone brought this lemon bundt cake, which was wonderful.

How many people were there Jeni? Anyone try it who had never had it before? What were some of the comments?
That cake is gorgeous.

8 people not including myself. 3 people had never had it before. People liked it with the fig the most. 1 of the new people said she was surprised how much she liked it. That's about it, there was a lot of food.

I didn't do the cake, but I thought I'd share. It was devoured as well.
