    Good healthy skinny food cooked by an expert chef.  Can't afford it.

    I believe I did have it years ago (I mean decades ago) but it is a vague memory and may be one of those false memories. You know, like when you are sure you know where you left your keys, but they ain't there when you look. That happened to me only .  .  .  er, let me see .  .  . well, quite recently, anyway.
    Regardless, food, yes the dish I'd like to try (maybe try again, that is) is Galantine. There are several recipes though, some at significant variance with another.
    Mrs Mott's is the recipe I'd like to try (again?). She's been dead for years of course, but luckily I have her cookery book - and Galantine is in it.

    Fried turkey.

    I don't know why, specifically, I haven't tried it yet. I don't fry my own food.
    I'm lucky to even prepare my own food. Wait, I eat every day and prepare it - - so I must be doing something as far as preparing.
    I have not been to a restaurant that offered it.

    Alligator.  The restaraunt that has it on the menu here was out of it at the times I went.

    Laughing...................I think I have low food curiosity.  My husband would try anything....beef tongue sandwiches, buffalo (before celebrities tried to make it cool), tripe, cracklin, brains, rocky mountain oysters, raw meats and fish, you name it.

    Balut -a fertilized duck egg incubated for up to 3 weeks then steamed and eaten out of the shell. Delish! 
    I googled it, I never been to Phillipines but I might try the stuff if I ever go there.

      It’s available here in the US in places with large populations of Filipinos, there are such populations in Canada, so it might be available there too.

      I became very well acquainted with balut when my Marine Corps unit landed in the Philippines back in the 1980s. I only tried it once, and that was enough to convince me never to touch it again. In the ensuing years, I had more than one Filipina girlfriend, and I established steadfast and unwavering personal rules about balut: 1) don’t offer it to me because I will not eat it, 2) don’t kiss me after you‘ve just eaten it or expect me to kiss you.
