The Omnivore's 100

This is really great. The blog Very Good Taste has come up with a list of 100 items that every omnivore should try in his or her life. And has turned it into a meme. Basically, you copy the list from Very Good Taste's The Omnivore's 100 and post it to your blog, bolding the items you've tried and striking through any you would never try. Oh, just go visit VGT for the nitty gritty. Below is my list, as well as those from the gang at the Serious Eats office.
