The 100 food you must eat, the quiz...
This is funny, it is a list of 100 food one must eat according to the blog Very Good Taste. It is very interesting list with some international, local, ethnic and trash stuff. I was quite confused by some of the names and didn't have the patience to check the dictionary to understand exactly what they were. I did quite well I think as we, Brazilians, are goat eaters.
I got this list from The Passionate Cook!
The originator of this "omnivore's 100" list suggests the following rules:
