We're only two letters from thinking the same!

There are only a very few foods that I don't eat. I would love to travel with Andrew Zimmern and share some of those awesome meals he gets to try!

I have only one rule; Someone else has to eat it first.

Once I see them eat it without falling down and puking, I'll try it myself.

Octopus is a pretty tame one.

Now I've had deep fried calamarie, which I think is either squid or baby octopus.

It's the fully grown octopus, I think, that smells so bad while it is cooking.

Calamarie is squid.

The only octopus I like is the baby ones.

Going off the topic a bit here - but, as reported above, calamari is Greek for 'squid'. Kalimera is Greek for 'good morning'. I am easily confused, as were the Greeks I used to smile at and say 'squid' to as I went out for my early morning swim when on holiday in Cyprus True story!

Both squid and octopus produce ink and use it as a defense. the ink colors the water and hides the creature and it is thought that it also interferes with the olfactory organs of some animals.

Squid ink pasta is nice - you can make some really striking looking dishes with black pasta. I've come across recipes that call for squid ink, and I know my local fishmonger could probably provide it - but somehow I don't feel attracted to it!
