What is the most unusual food you have eaten that you'd recommend others try?

For me I guess it would be lamb's brain. Very delicate and with a jelly like consistency.

what's cruel about it?? the octopus has been killed just like any other creature you eat? It's no different from eating a steak. The tentacles have been removed and simply keep moving as a reflex for a little bit of time afterwards as a protective mechanism to distract a predator to increase it's chances of survival. They simply have a more distributed nervous system that allows for this like a number of other creatures.

Haha, Buddhas hand is a design on a box being discussed on Antiques Roadshow right now! How random.

Durian. Tastes delicious if you're eating it; smells like used socks with turds inside if you're not.

A creation of my own: Sausage and mashed banana mixed together.

Don't knock until you try it, seriously!

LIVE octopus!! (chopped up tentacles wriggling on a plate - sound enticing??) It's a korean delicacy and come on... it doesn't get much more primal than that!

(if you actually salivated at the mention of this... then wow... just wow)

Bone marrow, and the connective cartilaginous tissue between beef bones (once softened during the process of making bone broth). After about 36 hours in the broth pot, I pick all the snotty bits out, mix them up in a bowl with some Himalayan salt and wolf it down. Bliss.

What do you mean by unusual? Something you can't normally get, or that looks weird? I like frog legs, which are unusual in the States but not as much elsewhere. Sweetbreads can be good, too. Buddha's hand looks completely weird, but it's just citrus (so not that unusual).

Chocolate pudding fruit (aka black sapote) is my favorite can't-find-it-often food. It's a relative of the persimmon and is delicious. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diospyros_digyna

Soup made with cow stomach here in Turkey. The little bits of stomach had an interesting consistency, to say the least..

Shark! And you have to play the Jaws theme in your head as you prepare to take your first bite
