Friends will tell you that I have a good sense of culinary adventure. My time as a vegan taught me to enjoy a number of hippie foods that most folks think are gross. Lately I've gotten hooked on Kombucha, which is basically rotting mushroom tea.
When I went on a short jaunt to Japan a few years ago, my guide asked me what I was willing to eat. "I'll eat anything you put in front of me," I promised, "except nothing with eyes looking at me, and no natto."
