What is black pudding?
Raclette- Ithought there wasnt a cheese I hadnt eaten. This one I havent heard of. Was it good?
Is Allo gobi an Indian food? My sis in law is Indian and makes something that is califlower and potatoes that I simply cannot eat enough of it is so good. Maybe it is the same thing-if so I have leanrned something.
Epoisses de Bourgogne-another cheese I am unfamiliar with...
I have mande many pots of gumbo, but being a vegetarian I havent eaten it.
I do not classify headcheese as a cheese. NASTY. Again,I am a vegetarian.
Oh, I lied on this one-Dulce de leche-I have eaten it. I cannot rememeber how I answered.
Girl! I am impressed. You are brave.

The original poster considered raclette as the meal where the special cheese (later called raclette cheese) is melted and poured over boiled potatoes, often together will cornichons, pickled onions and other vegetables. These days little raclette grills exist where each guest has a raclette pan to create their own ideal combination of ingredients. Enormous fun for a dinner party!

I had actually answered this on Leigh's blog yesterday. Then when I saw Tammy's post here from last night, it occured to me that I shold have answered it here as well so here is that exact same comment from Leigh's.

Raclette is very good. It is served warmed or melted actually. It is very smooth and reminds me a lot of brie. Not that they taste the same so much as just the texture I guess

Allo gobi is middle Eastern or Indian I cannot remember honestly. But either way I bet it is what your S I L makes. They often run hand in hand. It is very good. I can make myself sick eating it.

You can make a vegetarian Gumbo, I have some recipes if you want them.

Black pudding is an English blood sausage. They cook the blood filler until it turns black and then make the sausage with it. I swear there is nothing nastier!
As far as my being brave, don't know so much about that.
My parents travel all over the world and as children they took us or brought back things for us to try. It was important to them that we be exposed to many places, foods, and cultures. It was a fun thing to do! Thanks for posting it.

There were things on the list that I didn't even know what they were! I am such a picky eater, this quiz would be one NO after another.

A good one for me would be

Chick Filet? Yes
McDonald's? Yes
Burger King? Yes
Taco Bell? Yes
Zaxby's? Yes

Pathetic really...
