There are quite a number of foods in the world which may taste just fine, but which I have diligently avoided my entire life. I need to choose something I'm willing - at some level - to prepare, so I'm skipping on deep-frying. (But really, I should try poutine before I leave Canada.) Thus far, these are the foods I'm choosing between to prepare on or before February 19th. Your input is, of course, most welcome.
Which of the following foods should I try eating?
* I ate an anchovy once on a pizza when I was young, a ball of fishy-flavored salt, and have been avoiding them ever since. Last night, I was reading Zingerman's Guide to Good Eating, and it assured me there were good anchovies in the world, and told me how to find them. I'm still somewhat suspicious.
Important note: I am a creature of delicate sensibilities, especially when food is involved, so don't make any overly disturbing remarks in the comments please, or I will be unhappy.
