A few years ago, I made it a point to expand my palate. I figured there were too many tastes in the world to dwell for long on chicken nuggets and sweet and sour.
Between a mother who loves spicy food, some time in France, spices I can't really pronounce, and the then diminishing taste buds of a smoker (I quit)... I began to need sharper and stronger tastes.
Here is a list of some of my new favorite treats:
Dry Gin Martinis.
Apple Cider Vinegar.
Mussels in wine sauce.
Fresh water eel.
Thai food with too much hot sauce.
Perchauds bitters with tonic water and a twist of lime.
Cigarettes (not a normal treat, but I do indulge every few weeks)
Flaming Hot Cheetos.
Friends and coworkers tell me I have the diet of a WWII Veteran. I'm really just a marshmallow on the inside.
What are some of your favorites?
