I do believe that if there's one food How MUST try if he ever visits here, it's tripe.

Hi Robert,

Cooked in milk and onions.

My maternal grandfather regularly ate this fare.

Regards,

Sean.

Tripe starter, jellied eel main, followed by Dorset knob and stinking bishop cheese board? Washed down by a carafe (aka hogshead) of Old Wallop.

I'm starting to realise why you guys fought so hard to get away from us.

Enjoy what's left of your 4th!

Oh and Robert and Sean

Getting Howard to eat tripe and onions might end up getting you banned from the forum!

Regards
Michael

Onions, I'll eat, but I'll pass on the tripe....

I didn't know tripe was a British thing. Here, chitlins--hog intestines--were/ are an African American southern thing. Mexicans make tripe stew. I have had tripe several times but don't like the taste. (However I am OK with eating any part of lamb.)

I have to confess that I've never tried tripe myself. It's not something that's eaten here much these days. I think it was probably a meal eaten more when times were a lot tougher than they are now.
I'll try anything once though. I tried jellied eels once from a guy selling seafood in a local pub. They were almost frozen and completely tasteless so I probably didn't try them under the best circumstances. I'm doing 11 days in London in September so I might try them if I can find them.

I can remember my Dad and Grandad eating Pig's Feet when I was a kid. It looked like jelly on a bone!

Regards
Michael
