Sauerkraut is fod from Heaven itself, along with sausages!
Obligatory, the poutine:
Fries, cheese curd and gravy.
But it's honestly awesome and in no way disgusting, unlike ketchup chips...
...which are an abomination in the eyes of god
You know, I think the show Fear Factor employed the use of the "100 year old egg" in one of it's sick, twisted games.
I saw this on Andrew Zimmern's show! Scandinavians in general have something about fermented rotting fish, the Swedes do it too.
And the worst thing is that Brennivin is barely any better.
I think that Stollen and mint sauce are both lovely. I can't think of a nasty traditionally British foodstuff. Unless we're the only ones with liquorice sticks and allsorts.
Tea and coffee are both utterly revolting, but they're drinks, not food.
I love all food actually, century eggs are quite delicious and is oft eaten in Chinese communities. I find eating the intestines of pigs to be a bit disgusting, especially the colon. When not cleaned properly, it emits an odor of pig feces and a disagreeable taste, some people actually prefer the taste of it not cleaned properly...
I like them in small amounts.
Pêche au thon : Peach and tuna
I already hate peaches and tuna separetely but putting them together simply makes me want to vomit.
Are you kidding me? Those are delightful. I also enjoy liver. It is most definitely not offal.
The worst thing about British cooking is black pudding. Eating blood is just disgraceful.
Asian food would be clear winner in this contest.
Korean "baby mouse wine"
Not local food for me though.
Rocky Mountain Oysters.
You kidding? Poutine is the best thing Quebec has ever done for Canada!
I have my concerns of how healthy it is, but you can't deny it tastes delicious.
Pickled Pigs Feet
Haven't you ever eaten blood sausage?
We already have an old thread about disgusting food in general, this is supposed to be about local food, yes ? Posting baby mice wine is cheating if you're not from Korea.
Also, wtf is wrong with you Sill ? Stollen ? They are delicious, and there's nothing wrong with stews.
Now, the only disgusting local (typical for Cologne) food I can think of is Blutwurst. Wikipedia tells me it's called black pudding in English. I like the German name better for it's honesty. Blood sausage. That's exactly what it is.
There's also Sülze, which I now know is head cheese (why?). I couldn't eat this stuff without throwing up.
Oysters, raw from the Chesapeake.
I was thinking about making some food before seeing this thread, now I think I'll put that off for awhile...
Where local is broadly defined as "American, eaten throughout", some of the food I won't eat includes:
American potato salad. I did have a German potato salad I liked once, but have yet to have an American one I liked. Macaroni salad fares no better, and coleslaw is only slightly preferable.
Red beets. While I like a borscht with a balance of tomatoes and red beets, in every other context I've found red beets to be a major negative to the foods they are in (and forget about them by themselves). However I'm fine with sugar from sugar beets.
The common pickle. Even fried I don't like them. The only time I've ever liked a pickle was when I tried a small Belgian pickle in Belgium. Otherwise, I generally take them off of anything that comes with them.
Honorable mention for ketchup. On occasion it can be good - I'd rather have meatloaf with ketchup than with gravy - but it's way too over-used.
Ugh, no thanks. Nasty stuff ranch is.
I WANT TO TRY!
What!? Ketchup chips are awesome. I wish they sold them regularly around here.
I agree with you here. I hate all kinds of pickles, cooked, uncooked, sour, sweet, little, big, crunchy, chewy. Nasty things, they are.
I quite agree, hence why I said...
I really fail to see how cheese and french fries can go together
