Glenn, I've sampled goat curry at the Notting Hill Carnival too. You can get jerk chicken there as well, which is fab. And, when in France, I've had escargots a la bourguignonne (snails in garlic butter) which are fantastic.

Most exotic though? The scotch pies at Celtic park - there's nothing like them (honest).

On a business trip to Japan I was given jelly fish, pickled in vinegar or something similar - it was one of those cases where you don't dare ask what it is until you've managed to swallow it. The things we do to keep customers happy!

I also managed to order pigs testicles once - didn't understand the menu - didn't eat them either!

Lumpy pink blancmange scooped from a wetsuit recently vacated by Sandra Bullock.

Over here (in Iceland) local delicacies include rams testicles pickled in whey and - best of all - preserved sharks head. They bury the sharks head, wee on it, leave it for a few months then dig it up and eat it with a spoon (and I'm not joking!). They wash it down with Brenavin (caraway seed liqueur) to take aaway the taste.

And they think Marmitte is disgusting!
