I have a confession.

I've never had an anchovy. I'm a fan of whitebait if it's anything similar?

Ordered anchovies in my latest Ocado shop...

(That's the most middle class thing I've ever said)

God, it tastes like cod liver oil washed down with sea salt. I'm going to barf.

I saw it, but to be honest, like most disclaimers/ warning signs/ terms and conditions etc. I decided to completely ignore it. I feel I am culturally enriched from the whole experience.

Is there one obscure food that you are a fan of that I may not have tried that is also reasonably easy to source?

Yes, although I'm not sure how easy it is to source outside dog food. Chicken hearts, discovered them at a Brazilian restaurant and I love me some chicken hearts.

Additionally, and maybe Mr B can testify (he won't, he has never ventured into these areas), but when I was in St Lucia I stumbled across banana ketchup. Everyone's reaction is disgust, I would say when they try it they're converted, but I've had no uptake on the try out. Point is I always make sure I have a bottle of banana ketchup, second favourite condiment and dead easy to obtain.

I've had Chicken hearts before, as well as duck heart and reindeer heart.

I shall endeavour to source some banana ketchup, I've seen it before but never tried it.

Reindeer heart sounds interesting, tempting even.

I've had reindeer before in Norway, just not their hearts, didn't really feel bad, Santa hasn't visited me in a while. When I was in Svalbard I tried seal on crackers. If anyone ever offers you seal politely decline, tastes like salt drenched play-dough.

Svalbard is coincidently on my list of places to go to in the next couple of years (as well as Tromso). How is the Calibre of English up there compared to Oslo?

I think I'd have to try seal based on my trying new local cuisine rule I have on holiday (only thing I ever rejected was beaver). Also there's a chance I might like it given my love of painfully salty anchovies.

Svalbard is highly recommended, really unique place. I had no problem with English, I think the only people who tend to visit are tourists or international researchers meaning that it's a commonly used language. The saltiness is comparable to anchovies actually, on that basis give it a crack.

The local cuisine rule is always good, never understood the want to go somewhere with a weird and wacky selection only to bypass for the local McDonald's or something.

:) Consider this a smutty seaside postcard giggle.

Anchovies are fab, btw. Tinned in oil, marinated in brine or - especially - fresh fried when they aren't salty at all.

Anchovies are delicious, especially in their clichéd culinary home of pizza.

And yes, a mod in OWR. Nowhere is safe. Feel our wrath etc etc.
