The unusual thus far ...

Many who read this are aware that my family and I are omnivores extraordinary ... we will consume many interesting and different foods exploring different tastes and textures.

Over the many years we have tried many different things, some more unusual than others. In some cultures, these are more acceptable, in others less so, for us we care little. What you do need to understand is that many of these foods are easy to acquire in the UK if you have the will to find them.

I do not claim be a gourmand, merely someone who is willing to eat different food.
