Children are notoriously fussy eaters. My siblings and I were no exception. Our parents did not insist that we eat everything my mother, who loved to cook and knew how to prepare hundreds of different dishes from all over the world, dished up. They did insist that we at least try a bite or two. More often than not we'd start off going "Nope. Nope, nope, nope, nope...", contorting our faces at the very look and smell of the concoction confronting us, then finish up quite liking it. I learnt from this to not reject food before at least sampling it. I'll even give kæstur hákarl, rooster scrotums and bull's penis a try if offered. Doesn't mean I'll finish up liking the taste, but at least I will have put it to the test before making a decision.

Witchetty grubs are quite tasty. They have a nutty flavour.
