    I love trying new foods, but my dietary restrictions make it hard sometimes. I am gluten intolerant. I eat sushi, though, and I have eaten alligator, octopus, squid, and a bunch of other odd things :D

    More so than not. There are some things that I don't think I would even try.

    By adventurous if you mean creepy crawlers, slithering or scaly amphibious animals, no. Not intentionally.

    As a person with a professional training in cooking, I am open to trying foreign food provided it is made with cleaned animal parts and not their waste products. To give you some animal parts that I like: tripe, brain, kidneys, sweet bread, chicken feet, I like them all if prepared well. Those of you who make faces at the mention of any offals, what do you think your favorite sausage casing is made from?

    See below a very popular item in Chinese dim sum offerings, steamed double cooked chicken feet, so popular they are sold out regularly. Try them, you'll like them

    I'll try anything twice. Always feel that trying something just once is never enough to get a proper taste for it. xD

    If it doesn't run faster than me or bite me back, I'll try it. If I like it, I'll eat it again. I do not however, go out of my way to try foods just for the sake of saying "I've had that!"

    Basically I could not be called adventurous at all, although I eat squid and octopus, for example, and love it. But it took me years to get to the point where I could do it. And I love sushi and am only now getting to the point where I'll consider sashimi, and it's been about 20 years that I've eaten sushi. (I'm a slow learner.) I just happen to have a weak stomach for lots of things but if the "rewards" are worth it, I'll give it a shot. Like salmon heads. Ever been given the salmon head and dug out that meat? It's the most disgusting looking sight you've ever seen, believe me, but that meat is sooooo delicious that it hooks you the first time you try it and, after that, you manage to kind of overlook the ugliness of that head. (Although I refuse to go near an eyeball. Never managed to get over that queasiness.)

    Snail, frog legs, bone marrow, lamb brain, alive shrimp, rosted cricket, pig ears... I think I qualify to for the adventurous eater definition.

    I have cooked fresh timber rattler in foil with lemon/pepper with a side of fried grasshoppers. Ah eating on the side of a backpacking trail. Nothing better. When we got to a meadow we camp at their was a grasshopper invasion of Biblical proportions. We filled 2 quarts size bottles and fried them up. While catching the grass hopped stumbled a crossed the snake who dying to join us.

    Though there are some vegetables and such that I don't like.

    I've had squid and eel. Liked both. The latter is really good in sushi.

    I grew up in New Orleans where we eat anything that doesn't eat us first. I have traveled to and worked on 6 continents and when I travel I always try to get authentic local cuisine before I leave. One thing I have noticed over the years is how homogeneous the world is becoming. I used to bring back local trinkets for my kids. In most places it is hard to find something you couldn't find in any mall in America. I could have been a poster child for that food channel or travel channel show where that guy, Anthony Bourdain, who travels all over the place trying local indigenous foods.

    No. I used to be, when I was much more ignorant.
    There is amazing amount of food that's not that good for you from all over the world with amazing variety of recipes to make it tasty- In America we ladle in lots of sugar and corn sugar (fructose) in processed foods, which causes diabetes..

    When we removed fat from food in the last 10 years,because they thought it fattening, Food Corporations Like the Mormon Church added a lot MORE sugar to make up for loss of flavor (sugar of course is the most fattening thing of all) to keep up their sales..

    PS- a healthy side effect is my Life Insurance premium has been reduced by 40%.

    Of course, living in California I've eaten often in the past at many varieties of Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Cambodian, Mexican, French, Italian, Swedish, Danish, English, Soul Foods, BBQ's and other restaurants, besides Jewish "Deli's".
