How can so many people hate liver!? It's one of my favorites. Try a chicken liver mousse with lots of port wine and see if you don't change your tune. ;)

I'm really good about at least trying anything. The foods that are an absolute NO are insects -- they don't have to be from the night market in China, they eat crickets in Japan and grasshoppers in France and America and it's a big, big no for me. (My friend, while we were in Australia, ate live grubs. Just watching him, I couldn't eat the rest of the day.)

Oh, I forgot, snails are an exception. Don't know why, guess the butter and garlic makes em more appealing.

there are very few foods that i won't eat and/or don't like.

you can forget about bugs, although i've eaten grubs and worms in survival training.

lima beans are one of the few veggies i dislike..

ika (squid), and ikura (salmon eggs) are the only 2 types of sushi i don't like.

and cottage cheese mixed with hot pasta makes me gag, almost as if dee made it...

well not much grosses me out. I happen to like liver kidneys sweet breads etc, heart tongue, etc. If cooked properly, tripe and chit'lins are fine too. I like veggies, but simply boiling won't do. THose turnips and such like do much better roasted, parsnips especially along side lamb or beef! Beets surely should be roasted. Dark leafy greens are a natural with pork and a fine vinegar. Strong cheeses are great too, love buttermilk, can drink it by the glass. and love fish and sea food.

Never had durian and probably don't need to, sea urchin too. No I won't eat insects worms bugs etc.
Snake eel gator and iguana are fine.
Don't have much of a sweet tooth so most sticky fruity deserts, even common ones, leave me cold. I can eat it but don't need the calories and don't care for the taste. Prefer my fruit raw in most cases.

Yes, right on, at least most liver, but not all, and definately lima beans! Also tripe, reproductive organs, and mussels (although I love most shellfish).

I'm really not fond of grits, or other forms of corn meal (cornbread, etc). Funny, because I like almost all other forms of corn. One thing is that I don't dislike any food enough to gag or do other forms of appalling table manners. So people assume that I don't dislike anything. Just because I don't go around puking doesn't mean that I don't like something.

Looking through this list there are a few things I haven't tried like brains and testicles, but I eat pretty much everything. I had tripe soup a couple of times, and I didn't like it, but I might be willing to try tripe again if it was prepared differently.

I guess I'm like a billy goat, put it in front of me, and I'll eat it!
I ain't got no sprinkle cheese. All I got's this here Velveeta cheese...
