Traveler's Lunchbox

"From places to visit to films to see to books to read, lists of things to do 'before you die' are certainly nothing new. One that I stumbled upon for the first time recently, however, was a list of the '50 things to eat before you die', compiled via a poll of BBC viewers and aired as a television show back in 2004 (which somehow I missed at the time). I was prepared for some oddities and questionable inclusions, but I wasn't quite prepared for how flabbergasted I would actually be at the things chosen by the British public as the gastronomic highlights of their life: the list's contents range from the absurdly general (fresh fish) to unflinchingly specific (Moreton Bay Bugs), and seem to contain several items for no other reason than to satisfy a need for something weird, e.g. guinea pig, alligator and reindeer. Vagueness seems to be its most pervasive flaw, with Chinese food, curry, pasta and sandwiches all having made the top twenty! And in case I were still looking for things to criticize, I could point out how culturally unbalanced the whole thing is, but it probably isn't worth the effort (and in fact I doubt there are many of these lists that aren't).


It did get me thinking, however. Realizing that I have so far managed 44 of these 50 (can you guess what I haven't eaten? answers are at the bottom!), I then started to imagine what would be on my list, if I were to make one based on my experience, and from there it was only natural to start wondering what would be on other food-minded people's lists. And as the curiosity grew, an idea took shape. What if I tried to actually compile a list, a bigger, better list, and one that is far more trustworthy and relevant for those of us who spend inordinate amounts of our time pondering, planning, preparing, reading about and traveling in search of food; a list as long as it needs to be, and as diverse in terms of geography and cultural preference as possible? And more importantly, where could I find enough passionate, well-traveled foodies to flesh out this list with their infallible good taste and culinary expertise? Why, in the food blogosphere, of course!

I am therefore announcing the creation of a 'joint project' (I know memes have gotten a little tiresome to many bloggers - yes, including me! - which is why I'm not calling it one ;) to create a list of food bloggers' top picks for things you've eaten and think that everyone should eat at least once before they die. Think of it as kind of a global food guide, which can enrich and inform our travels and perhaps even clue us into things closer to home that we've somehow overlooked. And although it will probably be too long for any one person to dream of completing, I hope it will give us all some small inkling of how many more edible treasures there still are out there, and how much there still is to experience..."
