For me it is Jamaica Beef Patties and sweet Plantains.

I wasn't exposed to much Caribbean food early on, but after traveling a lot I'm glad to have been. Dee-licious.

Everything. When I was a kid (40s) it was meat and potatoes with peas, beans or corn. Garden vegetables and lake fish in the summer, goose and pheasant in fall, venison and more fish in winter. Chinese food on trips to Canada, where every little town had a Chinese restaurant, sometimes the only one. Pizza came (as did TV) when I was about 14, so that would almost qualify for "later in life".

Yogurt. I bought it when I was young because my friends touted it for weight control - but never acquired a taste for it. (My mother always making gagging faces and calling it "baby vomit" didn't help). It was the kind with the fruit on the bottom that you had to mix with the nasty white stuff on top. Now that I've been introduced to the new "lite" varities, that come in so many yummy flavors like Key Lime Pie, Banana Cream Pie, Cheesecake, etc., I always keep it in my refrigerator for when I want a no-guilt sweet creamy fix and for the extra calcium.

Sushi and Sashimi.

With a 2nd generation Italian Mother and 2nd generation Mexican Latino Father I had a fairly expansive and diverse experience with food from many ethnic cultures and backgrounds growing up in California. Toss in wildgame/fish and my culinary exposure was fairly complete.

However for some reason Japanese food was not one of them. I was 19 before I was exposed to Sushi and Sashimi. I can honestly say a month rarely goes by that I don't eat one, the other or both.

Sweet potatoes. The only way I had tasted them was during the holidays. That casserole where they are very sweet with marshmellows on top. Yuck.

Then a friend baked one, sliced it and put butter, salt and pepper on it. Very good

Yogurt - and now I love the Chobani kind as opposed to the high sugary types. Love the Consistancy of Chobani. I did try the store brand of Greek style this week and it's also very good.
