Go3Team, i think its more the concept that the non british cant handle. Having a yorkshire pudding with your main course. Speaking of which my sunday dinner is nearly ready, Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding!
Us Scots have the "Great chieftain o' the pudden race": Haggis.
Sheeps stomach stuffed with oats, onions, spices and all the bits of a sheep you would normally throw away: lungs, heart and liver. Lovely!
We also have Porriage, Hash-Browns, Stovies and Scotch Broth which is a bit more appealing.
And not forgetting the Cuisine that everyone loves: Scottish Salmon washed down with Whisky!

Dormice are considered a great (but rare) delicacy in Slovenia. And, no, they are not really mice, but rather more squirrel-like forest rodents. They are also eaten in some other parts of southern and south-central Europe and were even enjoyed by the Romans. Of course, not all people approve of using dormice for food.

when I was a vegetarian, I had vegetarian "haggis" over there - tofu, tempeh, and God only knows what else plus the oats and spices. I was on the lookout for the deep-fried Mars bars but didn't see them.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

No wonder my father learned to cook Indian style when he was working over there!
But the German province of Rheinland-Pfalz has a very similar dish called the "Pfälzer Saumagen" (Sow´s stomach, Palatine style). Since this province is the home of former chancellor Helmut Kohl and this meal is his favourite dish, all foreign dignitaries had to eat it (Uhg!).
My mother likes a very smelly cheese from her home province Hessen (Handkäs). I had to leave the kitchen when she unwrapped one.

Eating live animals usually doesn't set well with me. Oysters are a personal exception.
Modern westerners are often turned off by cuisine that is common in other areas of the world, but some people here still delight in pickled pork snouts and such. I muse at southern relatives badmouthing my taste for escargot but turn around and fry-up pig's intestines for themselves. Regards

In Germany, there are many strage dishes. Just to name a few:
* Mettbroetchen. This is *raw* ground pork with pepper and raw onions on a bread roll. actually, I like it.
* Blutwurst: type of black pudding. sausage made with pork blood and thick pieces of pork fat. I hate it.
* Sauerbraten: A marinated roast beef. Put the beef in a gravy made of vinegar, juniper, laurel, onions and let it in the fridge for a week. than cook slowly. nothing strange yet? well, many use horseflesh instead of beef.

Well it is not a food for every day but, according to old wives tales in teh area hog jawls are supposed to bring good luck it you eat them on New Years day along with black eyed peas. i don't believe in luck so I just eat teh hog jawls. Its just like baccon. i also consider fired chicken an ethnic food of the south. NOT KFC (not that I don't like it) real home fried chicken. Yeah sure you can get it anywhere but, no where near as good as it is in the SOUTH.

Garen, you are quickly becoming my new favorite person on this forum lol. Also, let's not forget Southern cornbread! There are two types, low country and mountain. I personally like mountain cornbread which is crumbly and thick, while lowland is sweet and cake like. Mountain cornbread can also have fried chitlins in it. (Fried pig intestine) I know it sounds good, but when you hit a piece of warm, fried, pig skin inside that cornbread, it's like heaven.

caviar. not THAT strange,but no one beside my russian friend and I eat it. i dont know why, they are just like chicken eggs(but saltier and more expensive). During some french thing every1 in our french class had to bring in some type of french quisine.i brought 1/4 kilo of caviar-needless to say only 10% was eaten by my class.
there are also sprats(small fish that are like sardines) that are completley dried. to eat it,you have to bite off the head.they are really salty,and once my friend brought them to some other people. They were hesitent,but found it additive
BTW,the country is Russia.
