You beat me to the punch with your throwaway remark; this really is just a new version of the Purity Test, isn't it? My palate is less impure than that of anyone else I've seen posting a score so far, so this means I win, or lose, or something. (Probably something.)

I can't think of anything that I wouldn't consider eating

My tastes are really, really not that adventurous. Out of the 84/85 I haven't tried, excluding Soylent Green, there are probably fewer than ten that I would choose in preference to a known and adequately liked dish, should they both appear at the same price on the same menu.

Here's the rub that demonstrates the inherent confusion in my attitude, though; one of the ones I definitely would try is the Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant option, and if said restaurant happened to serve up one or more of the remaining 83 items then I would probably nom it up perfectly happily; outside that context, I'll happily live without expanding my horizons.

I am tempted to create a 100 Northern Foods meme but after

1. Fish and chips
2. Pie and chips
3. Fish and chips and scraps
4. Forget the fish and chips, just ask for a bag of scraps
5. Parmo
6. Chips for breakfast
7. Deep-fried Mars Bar
8. Deep-fried confectionery that didn't appear on the menu and that you had to convince the owners to batter and fry

then the joke gets thin. Or, arguably, long before that.

Come on now. Gravy, pasties, spam fritters, mushy peas, pea-wet?
