Fearless eaters, where do you draw the line?

Bkeats | Oct 5, 2011 09:08 AM

I’m think of myself as an adventurous eater. I love raw fish in sushi, raw beef in tartar, liver, sweetbreads, bone marrow, sea urchin, snails, octopus…. what I will call the beginner gross out foods. Then there’s the jellyfish, sea cucumbers, veal brains, tongues from various creatures, the noodle of a freshly killed conch, odori shrimp and so on that I’ve tried. Not necessarily stuff I will have again, but I ate them. Then one day looking at a menu there was something described as cod milt - cod sperm. Just couldn’t order it despite the aforementioned noodle (time for bad jokes and a rim shot). For the adventurous eaters out there where do you draw the line?
