The Christmas Fifty

Andrew at Very Good Taste has launched his festive food list. How many have you tried? I was quite pleased with how many I managed to tick off. If your unsure of any of the foods visit Andrew’s blog and there is links to the different foods.

Here’s what to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve tasted.
3) Place an asterisk after all the items you’ve cooked/prepared.
4) Optional: Cross out anything you never want to try, or add an exclamation mark after anything your really want to try.

You’re also welcome to post a link to your version of the list here at
