    I’ve had croquettes made from pig’s head which were delicious.

    We used to love a pig’s trotter for lunch with vinegar on it for some reason. On a Friday lunchtime my Grandad would come home from his job at the dockyard with them cooked, fresh from the butchers.

    Oh, I remember reading that pig's cheek was supposedly particularly tasty. Mind you, I'm pretty sure that was Heston Blumenthal who probably served it with potatoes made entirely from glitter and orange juice that was really koala cheese.

    He comes across quite bratty in some of the travel shows, especially the one in Japan, he hated most sashimi I think.

    Anyway, tripe is the worst, my grandmother used to cook it and the smell in the kitchen always made me gag.

    I like liver, sweetbreads and tongue (is that an organ though?) and would probably try most things, but brains and lungs don't really sound too appealing...

    I know a few people back home who quite like a bit of SNOUT.

    I love chicken hearts, liver is nice as well. Intestines stuffed with rice and chickpeas then fried or boiled are big where I’m from and I used to love them as a kid but I grew out of them (there’s not much flavor there).

    Tongue I’ve never been able to get into.

    I like thinly sliced cold tongue in an open sandwich

    had plenty of heart and liver when I grew up. hearts I can still eat but the taste of liver is too strong for me, hence why I also don't eat liver paté which is practically a national dish around here

    don't think I'll ever want to taste offal or buttholes, although I guess with offals, at least the ones in Japan, it's more about texture than flavour

    I echo the praise for black pudding. I find the Danish variety is a bit spicier and sweeter than the English. a Christmas staple

    I am actually getting quite weird with meat. I could never eat meat off the bone, but now chewing on most meats make me feel quite queasy. It is something I am definitely going to try at some point.

    Same and same! Chicken hearts are DELICIOUS.

    I once had the most beautiful calves liver, cooked to perfection, melt in the mouth :disco:

    I'd feel a bit odd about eating BRAINS but probably would if it was given to me. I draw the line at COCK AND BALLS though.

    I had some mushrooms on sunday and couldn't bear to look at all the meat on the bbq. The sausages really didn't need to start breathing.

    I prefer to BREAK HEARTS rather than eat them.
