To “Live a little” means different thing to different people. I can mean different things to the same person given a specific time. Last week “live a little” encompassed spending time with my children enjoying the weather. Today “live a little” means to try new and different foods from different cultures. Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations is one of my favorite adventure foodies and although he is a tad weirder I do like Andrew Zimmern as well. I’ve always been a firm believer when it comes to trying new foods. Keeping an open mind has led me to find some of my favorite foods such as Ikura (raw salmon eggs) and Dinuguan (blood soup from the Philippines).
I’ve also tried foods that were not my favorite such as Durian (stinky fruit that tastes like rotten onions missed with spoiled strawberries).
Last month we decided to try fermented Duck Eggs. There is no way to transfer smell via this post, but you wouldn’t be too far off it you just used your imagination. With that being said, if you can get outside of your own head the eggs aren’t really that bad.
To Live a little I have been able to step outside of my box through food and in return I have learned a lot about other countries cultures. Someday if I get lucky enough to find cheap flights to Malta I will try some of their delicacies as well! It is an experience my entire family shares and one we try to share with others.
What foods have you had that made you Live a little?
