Well I've tried a few new dishes when I was away, but if you mean individual ingredients...I tried vegetarian shark's fin (or shark's fin for the ethically conscious). Before that I had truffles and hare for the first time in the same dish.

Pepsi & vodka; my neighbor loves it. I saw him pouring one, & wondered if its any good. He brought some over..... It's not bad, but not my drink of choice.

lol So funny. I have a similar rule. I don't eat chicken, or anything that tastes too much like chicken (some of those soy products are far too realistic for me lol).

Some really hot and spicy assortment of peanuts, chicken peas, cranberries, and something else. God, I got my sinuses all cleared after a handful of those. Way too hot for me DH will enjoy it, though.

Babaganoush. It's a dip made with roasted eggplant, olive oil, and seasonings. You eat it with pita. I tried it at a Turkish restaurant near work, and I loved it.

I had it again last week, this time from a Lebanese place near where I live, where they spelled it Babaganouj. Was just as good. It's fun to say, too!

How funny! I had baba ganouj for the first time last night too. There's a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant near me with really good Middle Eastern food. We also had dolmas and a marinated salad of bell peppers and eggplant that was absolutely delicious. I need to find out how to make that eggplant.

Claudia Roden has never steered me wrong. She writes really interesting cookbooks, too. Since we're not eggplant lovers, I haven't made this recipe.

I don't usually like eggplant, either, but I like that stuff!

It can be quite nice grilled and well seasoning or in spicy, tangy dishes. Also as part of a salad.
